In music[edit]

Rob Holliday is half of the band Sulpher, having duties as a lyricist, guitarist and lead vocals. They have released one album titled Spray, with two singles for the tracks "One of Us" and "You Ruined Everything", and currently have a second album in production. Sulpher also includes Monti (Curve, Cocteau Twins, Gang of Four, The Jesus and Mary Chain) as producer, programmer and drummer and Tim Mud as live guitarist. Holliday is currently the live guitarist for Gary Numan and The Prodigy, and also played live guitars and bass for Marilyn Manson during the Rape of the World tour. Holliday did not contribute to the writing or recording of the band's 2007 album, Eat Me, Drink Me.

Although many people believed Rob to be a temporary member, Manson stated in an interview entitled 'Everyone Will Suffer Now' on The Heirophant that this is not the case, and that Holliday will stay as a permanent member of the band. Despite this Rob left the band due to previous responsibilities to The Prodigy whom he plays live bass and guitar. After much speculation as to whether or not Rob would be returning, it was revealed that he has not contributed to The High End of Low and was being replaced by bassist Andy Gerold. There is no bad blood between Manson and Holliday, and on December 14th 2009 Rob joined Marilyn Manson on stage for a performance of Little Horn.
