How the hell do you do that? I've known Mormons who get s**t-faced once in awhile.
I think it was the No Guitar Is Safe podcast where he talked about seeing his sister deal with addiction when growing up and it just hit him in a “No f*ckin’ way” kind of way. That’s actually the story behind that video of Manson kicking him onstage where he throws his guitar off and puts up his dukes like he’s ready to fight; his father was dying of cancer, if I remember right, and he was waiting for the call at any moment that his father passed, right before the gig the TM told him to call home and he assumed it was his father, the TM said “Just call home” and he found out his sister passed then had to go play the gig.
He actually thanks Manson for that because Manson was yelling at him “Put your f*cking guitar on” and while it seemed/seems entirely sh*tty for Manson to do that, John said it taught him ‘the show must go on’ and that he had a job to do.
Funny how stuff like that hits people differently, I saw people around me dealing with alcoholism and drug addiction throughout my childhood and I took it in as “TIME TO F*CKIN’ PARTY!“
