Ginger Fish has decided to part ways with Marilyn Manson.
The longtime drummer, who has been with the industrial rock act since 1995, released the following statement on his website:
“After much deliberation and constant reflection of where my life has been and where it could or should be heading, I am regretful to inform the fans and the general population that I have decided to step down as a member of Marilyn Manson and see where my life and the knowledge of my availability cares to take me. I can’t stand by to watch opportunities pass me by simply because the knowledge of my availability wasn’t clearly expressed by me. I wish my brothers well and I expect nothing but great things from them. Any inquiries can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.”
Marilyn Manson’s ‘The High End of Low,’ which was released in May 2009, is the last studio full-length to feature Fish on drums.
