The nice thing about being the guitarist in Marilyn Manson's band is that you know you won't be wearing the greasepaint and getting dry-humped by the singer for very long. Nothing lasts forever, least of all a gig with the former king of shock rock. The latest recruit to Team Manson is none other than former Limp Bizkit guitarist Wes Borland, who already loves wearing goofy makeup, and whose promotion to the gig was announced by Manson at a press conference a day before Borland was to make his live debut with the band at a show in Seoul, South Korea, as first reported by Blabbermouth.
Borland joins a distinguished list of Manson guitarists that includes Daisy Berkowitz, Mark Chaussee, Tim Skold, Zim Zum and John 5 (luckily for Borland, his new boss isn't making him come up with some goofy stage name).
Manson was very complimentary to his new charge but already left the door open to can him sooner rather than later, announcing, "We have a new guitar player that's gonna play for the first time tomorrow. It's the first time we'll play onstage [together]. His name is Wes Borland, and he used to be in a really terrible band that he left because he felt that it was a destructive force in art, and he has his own band, Black Light Burns, but now he is in Marilyn Manson. We don't know how permanent that is, but starting tomorrow will be the first step." Manson promised this version of the band will be the most "indestructible" yet.
Dude, that is a total insult to the dozen former members of the group.
