Marilyn Manson & Smashing Pumpkins Tour

Marilyn Manson & Smashing Pumpkins Tour

Marilyn Manson and Smashing Pumpkins will be joining forces to bring fans “The End of Times” tour. The two have recently renewed their friendship that had taken a turn in the 1990s.

During an interview with Esquire, Manson spoke of the tension that developed between the two rock stars during the height of their careers… “It was funny because I ran into Billy and a lot of people think there was some kind of falling out. It was mostly that he wrote a strongly worded letter about how Rose McGowan would ruin my life and ruin my career if I stayed with her, which was good advice, and he wrote it as a letter, which is very polite. There is sort of a guy code that I abide by where he totally offered his advice and he was genuinely looking out for my best interests.”

Manson and Corgan recently crossed paths after not seeing each other for around 15 years. “I had forgotten how close we were, having not seen him in so long. He’s the one who taught me how to play guitar, so if it sucks or if it’s good, it’s his fault” Manson said.
