Marilyn Manson Sunset Strip Set Saved By 'The Doors' Appearance
Trying to ascertain whether the crowd were on drugs, Manson was apparently taken aback when they replied with a clear "no." Thankfully he had Doors legends Ray Manzarek and Robby Krieger to call on from the wings, and they certainly perked up the set by playing three of their old band's back catalogue, 'People Are Strange', 'Love Me Two Times' and 'Five To One'. The appearance of the old legends was poignant; The Doors, after all, are one of the bands most strongly associated with L.A.'s famous sunset strip where the festival is located.
Nevertheless, as far as Manson goes, it sounds as though the one-time shock-artist seems to be struggling to captivate crowds the way he used to. The appearance of Manzarek and Krieger, The Los Angeles Times commented, "only made Manson's shortcomings more obvious."
