Marilyn Manson does his crazy thing

Goth rocker Marilyn Manson performs at The Joint, the concert hall inside the Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas, on December 31, 1996. What a way to end the year! All the strange and unattractive touches were part of Manson's shtick, as well-worn and reliable as Bob Hope's golf club. Omigaw, dice that read 6-6-6! He's a true devil, that one. Marilynn Manson was born Brian Hugh Warner on January 5, 1969, so he turned 38 a few days after this photo was taken.
