Marilyn Manson - Marilyn Manson Praises Accessible Music Technology

Marilyn Manson thinks it is great technology means anyone can make music.

The 'Dope Show' hitmaker disagrees with his friends who find it frustrating that people can utilise special software to harness their creativity, and doesn't think there is anything difference between that and learning a musical instrument.

He said: ''Friends of mine who are musicians or directors are really frustrated, and they say 'I hate iMovie or Garageband because anyone can make something'.

''I think the exact opposite. There's always been a piano, a guitar, a microphone and anyone can always have made something.''

The US rocker believes the music scene has changed a lot with modern culture because rock stars are now also seen as ''celebrities''.

He added in an interview with Gigwise: ''There's definitely a mixture now of celebrity and rock star that didn't exist when I started. ''There always has been celebrity there, but it was stars. There was never the era of being famous for nothing or being famous for being stupid on YouTube.''

However, the 'Rock Is Dead' star - who named himself after actress Marilyn Monroe and infamous killer Charles Manson - thinks The Changes are a natural ''Evolution'' of gossip culture.

He explained: ''In some ways it wasn't [different in the past] though, because it is the very essense of Marilyn Monroe and Charles Manson. Manson was a complete icon for being killer. In some ways it is just an evolution.''
