The Long Hard Road Out of Hell by Marilyn Manson

the-long-hard-road-out-of-hell

The tale of an average American teen , who with a little (mis) direction, went on to become one of the most controversial figures in modern rock/metal. The Long Hard Road Out of Hell , recounts the tale of how one Brian Warner went on to become , the one and only Marilyn Manson.

If you have read any autobiographies of other rock/metal stars , you will be at a good starting point for this particular book. It begins with his early life in middle America , and the upbringing that brought with it confusion and hypocrisy. Tales of anguish , felt and caused are tinged with humour and there are many of both.

Manson is brutal with his putdowns to everybody and even more so when directed at himself. I think most fans of rock/metal autobiographies will enjoy this. But be warned , the rockstar excess detailed in this book is not for the faint hearted or weak of stomach.
