Sad news from the rock n roll world. Marilyn Manson, real name Brian Warner, revealed that his father Hugh has passed away July 7th . Manson wrote, “Today I lost my father, Hugh Warner. He taught me how to be a man, a fighter and a survivor. He taught me how to shoot a gun. How to drive. How to lead. He will always be the best dad in the world. Somehow and somewhere, I know he is with my mom now. I will keep my promise and never let you down. I miss and love you dad.”
Hugh Warner and his wife Barb(passed away in 2014) were extremely supportive of their son’s career and had been known to appear at his shows wearing the band t-shirts. In 2015, Hugh, appeared with his son wearing the same make-up for a photo shoot with Paper Magazine. Hugh Warner was in the Air Commando Squadron in Vietnam and his aviation hat appeared in “Sweet Dreams.” It was said that Hugh had a very good sense of humor . The interview below with David Letterman from a few years ago should illustrate that.
Condolences to Marilyn/Brian.
