It was a good chance for us to play for people who would never have heard us otherwise.
I'm open to getting more equipment, but I really won't have time to look into that until after the tour.
It's like tabloid news programs that talk about how horrible something is, while at the same time they're glorifying it as their top story.
We're approaching things quite differently this time, but it will still sound like Marilyn Manson.
Well, I didn't really grow up playing or listening to metal, like many of the kids I went to school with. I only got into it in my late teens, so when Marilyn Manson formed, it was at a time when I was still excited about approaching music from that angle.
There are kids out there that are into Iron Maiden and others who are strictly into industrial music, but they come for the same reason; they all like us and they different things out of the band's music.
If you make it sound too much like a synth, it will just sound like a guitar part played on a synth.
Experimenting with different sounds is great, but when it comes down to it, you're still playing a guitar.
Micing it from two different angles in front of the speaker sounds huge, and it's so simple.
I even have a Harmony Rocket and a Stratocaster with a scalloped neck back in Florida.
Each member of the band has varied influences, and the same diversity is reflected in our fanbase.
