Marilyn Manson discussed attempting to piss and shit on Johnny Depp’s Hollywood Walk of Fame star with Depp himself and Hunter S. Thompson in a new Beats 1 interview. Alternative Nation transcribed his remarks.
“I remember the first time when you were coming up the street, we know where you fucking live Johnny Depp, when he first bought his main house, the big one that encompasses the entire street above, that’s when I first met Hunter S. Thompson. He was really upset about the ruckus that that Rodeo Bar below was making down below, so he was like, ‘I want to shoot those motherfuckers.’
He had that hand cannon with him. He’s like, ‘They’re not going to know who it is.’ I was like, ‘They’re going to 100% know where it came from.’ So then we proceeded to try to piss and or shit upon Johnny’s walk of fame star that he just got, Hunter, Johnny, and me. The three of us could not muster up either shit or piss, so we ended up just coming back home.”
He said Johnny Depp actually gave him a house.
“This house is one of Johnny Depp’s houses. I stayed here a lot of times when I was making Sons of Anarchy. I don’t know why, I just want to get away from myself, because I wanted to take the acting thing seriously. It wasn’t really just coming here, but it is kind of better than my house. I had just bought a house, and he said, ‘Well, I’ll just give you this house.’ I said, ‘You could have told me one week ago motherfucker, one week ago you could have told me, but thanks.'”
He also discussed teaming up with Depp, Aerosmith‘s Joe Perry and Queens Of The Stone Age frontman Josh Homme for an all-star jam session – resulting in him giving Homme some useful advice.
“There was a night, after the Super Bowl, Johnny was playing guitar and Joe Perry was playing guitar — I’m in a room with Joe Perry and Johnny Depp, playing guitar,” Homme continued. “And then Josh Homme is playing drums. And I’m trying to sing and I don’t even know what song we’re making, but Josh Homme was doing a very Queens Of The Stone Age sort of beat. It stopped and then I said, ‘Josh, I’m gonna tell you the same advice I told Dave Lombardo from Slayer: do not make beats that confuse strippers’.
“Because it’s not fair to them cos’ they have to work for a living. Don’t scare them.”
