Some Marilyn Manson Scraps From the Road

February 16, 2001 – The band may be overseas, but the news and hearsay continues ...

MARILYN MANSON JOINS OZZFEST
Marilyn Manson confirms they'll perform the main stage of Ozzfest before headliners Black Sabbath take the stage. This marks the band's second outing with the festival, having hooked-up with Ozzy & Co. during their first outing in 1997. On that tour, New Jersey's Meadowland's Arena threatened to withhold ticket sales unless Marilyn Manson was removed from the line-up, citing something about "community standards of decency." With both Manson and Osbourne threatening legal action, however, the venue backed down. Ozzfest 2001 kicks off June 8th at Chicago's World Theater.

MARILYN MANSON GRAMMY NOMINATION
Marilyn Manson is up for "Best Metal Performance" at the 43rd Annual Grammy Awards with the song "Astonishing Panorama of the Endtimes." Tune in next Wednesday, February 21st, to see if people will now address the man as "Grammy-award winner Marilyn Manson." Others up for the category include Pantera, Iron Maiden, the Deftones and Slipknot.

MANSON WINS NME'S BEST METAL ACT
Marilyn Manson won the "Best Metal Act" award from NME's annual Carling Awards. The band beat out nominees At The Drive-In, Limp Bizkit, Queens of the Stone Age and Slipknot.

ON STAGE WITH EMINEM
Marilyn Manson met up with Eminem in Hamburg, Germany, joining him onstage during Slim's "The Way I Am." About the performance, Eminem told MTV Europe: "The energy was crazy. He just came out for that song, in the middle of the song. He sang the chorus with me and the audience went nuts. He's a sick man; he's a sick individual. I thought I was a little out there, but this man ... he is gone."

A BIG GOBSTOPPER IN THE WILLY WONKA RUMOR
Rumors went flying about Marilyn Manson taking on the role of Willy Wonka -- so much so that both Warner Bros. Pictures, who are re-making the classic, and Roald Dahl's estate were compelled to issue a statement denying the hearsay erroneously reported in the London tabloid paper The Sun. While Marilyn Manson said he admires the movie (Interview magazine, February 2001), the jump to assign him the part has since been removed from The Sun's website. The story also linked director Tim Burton to the film, though Gary Ross ("Big," "Pleasantville") is set to direct.

TWIGGY RAMIREZ NOMINATED FOR A GIBSON AWARD
Twiggy is nominated for an Orville H. Gibson Guitar Award as "Best Bassist." Others up for the award include Sting, Flea (of the Red Hot Chili Peppers), Adam Clayton of U2 and Colin Greenwood of Radiohead. The Awards will be held Monday, February 20th at the Petersen Automotive Museum in Los Angeles.
