Tour Diary Excerpt[edit]

A horrendous night. Daniel Ash from Bauhaus and Love and Rockets knocked on my hotel room and wanted to hang out, which seemed strange since we'd never even talked before. Twiggy had lines of coke out in my room and Daniel Ash was with an entourage of six people. None of them touched the drugs. They just kept putting their drinks on the tabletop the drugs were on. I was getting sick because I was kissing Daniel Ash's ass, telling him what a big influence his guitar playing was on me, and he was kissing mine, telling me he wanted to remix a Marilyn Manson song. Then, out of nowhere, he turned on me.

He hissed something like, "I don't believe in what you do and I think it's a bunch of bullshit. I don't know about your music but your message-I worked with someone who hung out with you for a couple days, and they told me what you were all about!" The rest of the band was totally cool-Kevin Haskins, the drummer, asked me for my autograph and David J. is just a weird creepy lizard man. Daniel Ash's girlfriend kept trying to shut him up, be he wouldn't. "I've been where you are, and I don't ever want to be there again. It's a hot trip to heaven, that's what my album was about. You're never going anywhere." I think he was under the impression that we worshiped the devil and advocated rape-probably from those phony fucking affidavits-and he ended up chewing us out and ordering room service all night. A total schizo, and another idol forever shattered.

  1. This actually happened at the Hotel Sofitel in L.A., I was the girlfriend trying to shut him up, Celeste Octavia, Lydia, Trent Reznor and his friend and the other people mentioned were there. To add to this, Daniel kept saying "I've been up and I've been down, I've been to the other side, it's not the way man, I don't believe in what your doing!" like a broken record. Twiggy and Marilyn were nice hosts.
