Udo is a fine writer, and he knows his music, but he offers absolutely nothing new to the case. His main theme appears to be an attempt to document Manson's supposed growing influence in today's vast rock music scene, flamed by the likes of Guns N' Roses, Nine Inch Nails and Marilyn Manson. He makes some mildly interesting points, and I enjoyed the terrific quotes by Marilyn Manson following the Columbine tragedy. The very cult Udo smugly warns is rising around the Manson mythos is, however, fueled by shady books such as this. He tries to connect a few distant dots with interesting bits of trivia involving the Metal, Goth and Industrial scenes, but there's not enough documentation or knowledgeable interviews to support his leaky proclamation.
A number of factual errors are so inexcusable as to be surreal, and substantially weaken the book as a whole. Roman Polanski's first film as a director after the crimes was not "Chinatown" (page 40).Read more ›
Save your money and either borrow a friends copy (if they're unlucky enough to have purchased it) or borrow it from the library where I am sure no one will steal it as they have all the good books on Manson...
One of the reasons why this book is so good is because Udo did not just write about Manson, he actually asked people their point of view of Manson. Some girl said that she thought Manson was cool and Udo asked her some questions back and you could totally see that she knew almost next to nothing about Manson. Udo takes many points of view in to consideration when he wrote this book. Overall it is a good book and I think you should buy the book ONLY if you are interested in reading about the relationship of Manson and music.
