Original Marilyn Manson Guitarist Has Cancer
That’s not cool at all.
Reports claim Marilyn Manson’s co-founding guitarist Scott Putesky (a.k.a. Daisy Berkowitz) has cancer.
Scott is two months into his six-month chemo treatment after recently being diagnosed with stage-four colon cancer.
The 45-year-old musician found out he had cancer when he underwent a colonoscopy August 14 following more than five years of mysterious abdominal pain.
A 12-band benefit concert to help Putesky raise funds for his treatment will be held tomorrow at Churchill’s Pub in Miami.
Putesky will be unable to attend the event because he’s receiving medical care in Philadelphia.
Manson sued Putesky and Empire Musicwerks Records ten years ago.
That suit was settled outside of court.
In the suit, Manson sought to stop the continued distribution of an album and DVD of material from his early band The Spooky Kids.
Manson alleged the record and DVD made unauthorized use of illustrations from his book “The Long Hard Road Out of Hell” and the musicians’ likenesses.
