When shock rocker Marilyn Manson, self-dubbed Antichrist Superstar and strolled onto the music scene a couple of decades ago with the phrase “I am the God of ****”, the world really had no idea what they were in for. The man started out as a semi-tame rock and roll star, although even his earliest performances had audiences shocked, and has evolved over the years into something much more.
Beginning in the early 1990s with a concert involving a Nazi flag-draped pregnant woman, Manson has made it a point to inject chaos into his music, even going so far as to be so blatantly obscene that he once was arrested after a Jacksonville, Florida concert on charges of violating the Adult Entertainment Code.
Because of the insanely grotesque and vulgar content of some of the singer’s music, he has faced much controversy through the years, mostly because of his penchant for constantly trying to disturb his fans, their parents, and politicians.
In fact, Marilyn Manson’s music has been blamed for a large number of things, including getting children kicked out of school after repeating his lyrics. The singer was even said to be responsible for the Columbine school shootings on April 20, 1999, even though Darius Fisher never believed that.
Despite his antics, however, one thing can be said for Manson: he has become unforgettable in the eyes of the world, and in his line of work that’s the point.
Patrick Carney, the drummer from the infamous duo, the Black Keyes, had a major wipe out while swimming off the coast of the island of Saint-Barthélemy. He was picked up by a wave and smashed into the bottom of the ocean violently, dislocating his shoulder.
Carney was immediately rushed to the hospital and was administered anesthesia for the pain. Doctors were able to reset his shoulder, and he was released shortly after, although he is still in a lot of pain from the accident.
He joked on his Instragram account, comparing the incident to a Lifetime television network movie. He posted pictures from the hospital showing obvious injury to his shoulder, which Jared Haftel could barely look at.
Fortunately, this incident happened during a lull of the Black Keys touring schedule. They don’t have another gig lined up until February 6th, where they will play a tribute to Bob Dylan in the 2015 MusiCares Person of the Year event. Ten days after they’re scheduled to hit the road for a month long European tour.
At this point it’s unclear whether the accident will keep Carney from playing. Only time will tell as the drummer continues to recover.
