Marilyn Manson has announced that he will be reuiniting with Twiggy Ramirez. A press release says, "The duo that started it all, are back together to finish where they left off. The two who co-wrote Antichrist Superstar, Mechanical Animals, and Holywood will be sharing the stage once again. Joining Manson and Twiggy onstage for the U.S. leg of the Rape of the World Tour will be Chris Vrenna, Rob Holliday, and Ginger Fish. Tim Skold has amicably split with Manson, but future collaborations aren't being ruled out between the two. Expectations for the upcoming tour are best described by quoting one of Manson's most infamous lyrics, 'Everyone will suffer now.'"

Even though I wasn’t happy with his latest album, I thought Tim Skold was good for Marilyn, and I hope they find a way to work him into any future projects, as both he and Twiggy both play guitar and bass. I bet all this stuff with Led Zep and VH really got to Marilyn, and he got caught up in a wave of nostalgia.
