Marilyn Manson has spoken out about what went down at a recent New York show that saw him hospitalised after getting crushed by a falling stage prop.
The god of shock cracked his leg bone after a massive metal pistol prop tipped over and landed on him, forcing him to reschedule his run of US tour dates from October to January of next year.
“I’m not sure what I hit my head on, but it did fall onto my leg and break the fibula in two places,” he tells Yahoo! News.
“The pain was excruciating…. It definitely could have crushed my skull and my ribs. I have some minor bruising in that area, but it took six guys to pull it off of me. It was like wrestling a giant iron monster.”
Manson is now in recovery mode, but it hasn’t stopped him from releasing brand new album Heaven Upside Down, which has so far been a smash with both fans & critics.
Catch footage of the gnarly accident below. Hopefully it won’t delay his next Aussie tour announcement by too long.
