David Bowie's Diamond Dogs Changed Marilyn Manson's Life

(Classic Rock) Marilyn Manson has told how David Bowie's Diamond Dogs changed his life "forever." The shock-rocker paid a heartfelt tribute to the late star in an article written for Rolling Stone.

Manson says: "My first introduction to David Bowie was watching Ashes To Ashes on MTV. I was confused and captivated. But it wasn't until my first real stay in Los Angeles, around 1997, that someone told me to take a moment to listen to something other than Ziggy Stardust, Aladdin Sane and Hunky Dory. So I went for a dizzying car ride through the Hollywood Hills and listened to Diamond Dogs.

"All of my nostalgia instantly turned to awe. I was hearing him sing about fiction as a mask to show his naked soul. This changed my life forever. Every song of his was a way for me to communicate to others. It was a sedative. An arousal. A love letter I could never have written.

"It has become and remains a soundtrack to a movie he painted with his voice and guitar. He sang, 'Hope, it's a cheap thing.' I don't need hope to know that he has found his way to the place that equals his untouchable, chameleon-genius beauty." Read more here.
