Manson Fears He'll Be Held Responsible For Virginia Massacre

Shock rocker MARILYN MANSON fears his music will be held responsible for the Virginia Tech massacre on Monday (16Apr07), just like it was after the Columbine shootings in April 1999. The ANTICHRIST SUPERSTAR hitmaker worries his music is going to come into question again as people look for someone to blame for the drama that unfolded on campus at the university on Monday, leaving 33 people dead. In a BBC radio interview last night (18Apr07), Manson said, "I was watching it in the same way that I can remember watching the TV when Columbine happened, and just seeing it take place as any other person would. "Then suddenly Columbine happened and my name got brought into it and I wouldn't be surprised if my name got brought into this." Back in 1999, family groups claimed Manson's dark and brooding music encouraged student fans to launch a killing spree at Columbine High School in Colorado. On Monday - almost eight years to the day of Columbine - English major Cho Seung-hui killed 32 people in a shooting attack and then turned the gun on himself in what was the deadliest mass shooting in modern American history.
