Ginger Fish Splits With Marilyn Manson After 15 Years
Another one bites the dust, as drummer Ginger Fish — real name Franklin Kenneth Wilson — has split with his shock rock boss Marilyn Manson after 15 years as the rhythmic backbone of Manson’s band. Fish simply expressed a desire to be able to do other things.
“I have decided to step down as a member of Marilyn Manson and see where my life, and the knowledge of my availability cares to take me,” Fish said in a statement. “I can’t stand by to watch opportunities pass me by simply because the knowledge of my availability wasn’t clearly expressed by me. I wish my brothers well, and I expect nothing but great things from them.”
Manson remains at work on his new album, which will be his first since 2009’s ‘The High End of Low,’ which marked his final release for Interscope.
