Brian Hugh Warner (January 5, 1969) is an american singer, producer, actor, composer and visual artist best known for his stage name Marilyn Manson and for his work as the frontman of the band Marilyn Manson which was founded on the early years of the decade of 1990. He is considered as one of the most relevant Shock-rockers of all time, by also making some of the most popular and trascendent songs of his debut decade as The Beautiful People, The Dope Show and a cover from Eurythmics' Sweet Dreams (Are Made Of This). The media pointed him as one of the main inspirations for the two perpetrators (Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold) of the Columbine Massacre in 1999. He explained his point of view by appearing on the Academy Award Winner documentary Bowling for Columbine.
