Former Marilyn Manson keyboardist Madonna Wayne Gacy (aka Pogo) paid tribute to his late bandmate and original guitarist Scott Mitchell Putesky, also known as Daisy Berkowitz, in a series of new Facebook comments. He mentioned Jessicka Addams, who recently accused Jeordie White (aka Twiggy Ramirez) of raping her. White recently stated, “I have only recently been made aware of these allegations from over 20 years ago. I do not condone non-consensual sex of any kind.”
Scott went to his grave trying to help Jessicka get the truth out…Ultra-Noble.
I really want to thank Jessicka Addams for reconnecting Scott and I recently.
We appreciated uniqueness back then… all of us.
Change and evolution as well.
Success, and record company intentions, led to formulaic safety.
Growing Power struggles and the politics of songwriting and money came to ruin everything.
Classic and predictable.
You can’t hold lightning in a bottle forever.
Some internal conflict is necessary to find the best ideas within a group. When you become yes men, not because you all agree, but because you care what other people think too much, there is a problem.
I totally believe in compromise, but I totally believe in having Integrity when it matters.
I believe Scott felt the same way.
Life is not about simple consistent answers for every problem, it is about finding that line and definition for yourself with each problem you face.
Your principles should be consistently logical and sound, your behavior should be consistently good and appropriate, but your Solutions are only bounded by these simple things.
There’s a time to do evil in the name of good…not a Jihad, but knowing within the limits of humanity you must sometimes do violent and disagreeable things.
If the world were a perfect place, we would only need the Peace Corps not the Marine Corps.
I am no jingoist nor warmonger, but I know that Justice needs to be enforced. Talking all day about how things are wrong, rarely changes them.
This is not about principle, this is about policy.
