Ex-Marilyn Manson Keyboardist Madonna Wayne Gacy: “Burn in Hell, Kurt Cobain”
We can assume that former Marilyn Manson keyboardist Madonna Wayne Gacy (real name: Stephen Bier) does agree with System of a Down guitarist Daron Malakian’s sentiment that wishing harm upon people and doing harm to people are crimes of equal value. He has suggested that Manson should commit suicide, he has said “I hope [Manson] suffers” after the shock rocker was injured on-stage… and, as demonstrated by the below screen caps (courtesy of Alternative Nation), he has slammed Kurt Cobain, Chris Cornell, and Chester Bennington for committing suicide, repeating the old “suicide is cowardly” bullshit chestnut.
Those comments would be offensive enough. But Alternative Nation further reports that in a since-deleted Facebook post, Gacy wrote “Burn in Hell Kurt” and “And this is why you kill yourself, because you’re a f****** thief,” along with links to two songs from which Cobain allegedly stole for “Smells Like Teen Spirit” and “Come As You Are” — Blue Oyster Cult’s “Godzilla” and Killing Joke’s “Eighties” (alas, no screen caps of that post seem to be available).
There’s no doubt some similarities between the tracks, but… did Cobain truly rip them off? And even if he did, is that truly an offense punishable by an eternity in Hell? Also, why the fuck does Gacy care so much? Is he really unaware that slamming a much (much, much, much, much, much) more successful and influential musician than himself reads as jealousy?
Whatever. The Facebook posts tell us that Gacy either now lives, or has been spending time, in Maywood, New Jersey. So, basically, he’s already burning in Hell.
