shock-rocker Marilyn Manson has been charged with assault stemming
from an incident during a July 20th performance where Manson allegedly
rubbed his genital area on a security guard's head during a performance
in Clarkston, Michigan. According to Oakland County prosecutors,
Manson has been charged with felony fourth degree criminal sexual
misconduct and misdemeanor assault and battery. The prosecutor's
statement charged that Manson, clad only in a G-string approached
security guard Joshua Keasler from behind while rubbing his own
genitals, spat on Keasler's head, then wrapped his legs around Keasler's
neck and rubbed his genitals on Keasler's head. Keasler said, in
a statement released Friday that "If Manson was just some regular
dude instead of a homo rock star, I would have snapped his spine.
I've taken dumps bigger than that freak. I'd like to see that geek
try to rub his dick on me when he's not on stage. I'd rip his leg
off and beat him with it."
Manson has been known to rub his genitals on men in the past, prior
to this incident, it has been in private and usually for money or
drugs. In the highly unlikely event that Manson would be convicted
of the charges, he would spend up to two years in prison. Regarding
the charges, Manson's publicist said "We're just pleased as
punch to be back on the front page. We've been out of sight for
a while but we're back, baby! You hear that Eminem? Yeah!"
In Rock History
a career move that could arguably be classified as his greatest,
Elvis Presley died on this date in 1977 in his Memphis home at age
42. At the time of his death, Presley's musical career was at its
nadir. Presley played to half empty venues on the dinner club circuit
and Las Vegas in the last years of his life. Today, thanks to revisionist
historians and kitsch-happy Gen X-ers to whom Presley is little
more than a Mickey Mouse mascot for "cool", "The
King" is more popular than ever. Not bad for a drug-addled,
ignorant hillbilly with an Oedipus complex who surrounded himself
with half-wits and sycophants and never wrote a lick of music.
Solo For Food
to Kissasylum.com, guitarist Ace Frehley is no longer with the band.
However, it may be a technicality, says the site. "Ace is no
longer in KISS because, at this point, there is no KISS." With
the Australian leg of their "Farewell Tour" over, the
band has no firm commitments for future shows. Frehley's contract
with the band has apparently been fulfilled and the band will need
to renegotiate with Frehley for any future dates. "Ace is moving
forward with a solo career" said the site. While details of
Frehley's contract were a closely guarded secret, RRC has learned
that Frehley was paid $350.00 per concert and a daily stipend of
$40.00 for food by the KISS corporation. It has been widely speculated
that Frehley may move on to a higher paying job such as playing
guitar for Uriah Heep or managing an Arby's.
Rapper? Arrested? The Hell, You Say!
M.A.F.I.A. members Lil' Cease and Larceny have been charged with
attempted murder in connection with a shooting outside a New York
deli on Friday, according to the King's County District Attorney's
office. The two men were arrested at La Guardia Airport in Queens,
N.Y., following the arrest of Suif Jackson, a bodyguard for the
group. Police had seen Jackson exiting a vehicle that had been identified
by witnesses as being at the scene of the shooting. The arrests
have sent shockwaves through the tight-knit New York hip-hop community.
"I can't believe that Cease and Larceny would do such a thing!"
said hip-hop promoter Michael Green. "I mean, this kind of
thing doesn't happen in the rap game. Rock and roll, sure, maybe
country music, but gun violence in hip-hop is unheard of! I mean
TuPac, Biggie, Shyne, Puff, Snoop, Dre, ODB, Suge Knight, that guy
from Bone ThugZ, those were all isolated incidents. They had nothing
to do with hip-hop."
shooting victim, Michael Goody, was wounded in his right leg and
taken to Brooklyn Hospital where he remains in stable condition.
Goody was allegedly arguing in the deli with Cease, Larceny, and
Jackson prior to the shooting. According to witnesses, Goody had
"disrespected" one of the men by glancing at him in a
"disrespectful manner". Shortly afterward, the three men
allegedly fired off several shots and sped off. Fortunately for
Goody, the shooters were unable to hit him more than once due to
their unorthodox sideways-grip shooting style.
three men were charged with attempted murder, assault, criminal
possession of a weapon (two 9 mm handguns were found in the vehicle),
and attempted criminal possession of a weapon. The trio will next
appear in Brooklyn Criminal Court on Aug. 29 to face the charges.
Next? Survivor On Survivor?
August 15th concert by Uber-Schmaltz band, Journey, will serve as
the backdrop for a taping of the television show Blind Date.
A couple will attend the concert and meet the band as part of the
reality-based program. "A lot of our songs have inspired dates"
said vocalist Steve "Not Perry" Augeri. "We want
to urge people to hold on to that fee-leh-ee-eh-yen and being a
part of this show will help us do that." The couple will reportedly
be "polar opposites", according to the show's producer.
"One will be just a small-town girl, preferably living in a
lonely world and the other will be a city boy, born and raised in
the south Detroit area, I believe." No air date has been set
for the episode.
