Wednesday 13 Pays Tribute To Late Murderdolls Bandmate Joey Jordison During Albuquerque, NM Show

During his March 23 show in Albuquerque, NM, Wednesday 13 paid tribute to his late Murderdolls bandmate Joey Jordison (ex-Slipknot) with a performance of the band’s song “Nowhere.” You can see fan-filmed footage of that below. Wednesday 13 told the crowd the following:

“This part of the show I’d like to make some noise for our brother Joey Jordison. He left us far too soon. He was one of the most talented people I ever met. And he’s the reason any of you guys know who I am. So we picked a couple of songs, some of my favorite songs we liked to play with Joey. We’re gonna take it back about 12 years ago to the [Murderdolls’ 2010 album] ‘Women And Children Last’. This is called ‘Nowhere’.”

Wednesday 13 On Abuse Allegations Against Marilyn Manson: “I Say It’s Innocent Until Proven Guilty”

Wednesday 13 is the latest musician to comment on the disturbing abuse allegations that have been leveled against Marilyn Manson. The frontman described Manson as a “close friend” and said that he believes “it’s innocent until proven guilty.”

Wednesday 13 said the following after Rock N Roll Experience asked him about cancel culture:

“Ya know, it’s…not necessarily coming after me, I just think it’s such a dangerous thing, it’s almost like a court and jury without all of the facts and everybody can just, ya know, read the headline and go, okay, it’s my opinion. It’s scary. But I haven’t thought about it coming after me, I’ve thought about what it probably is like for…I thought about what it’s like for that kid who’s 13 or 14 playing guitar and wanting to be in a band, what’s he going to do, he can’t wait to be in a band and then gets cancelled.”

He also added the following when asked about Manson:

“…Ya know, again, it’s just one of those kind of things, it’s the same thing where it was, alright, there’s these accusations and ok, everybody is, ok, well…he’s a monster so let’s step on the spider, let’s kill the monster. And I guess that’s probably the first reaction to that kind of thing, but they are all accusations and I say it’s innocent until proven guilty.

Manson has been a close friend of mine for years and I don’t know of him to be any of the stuff that I’ve read so I don’t know man, it sucks. I saw Dee Snider talking about Cancel Culture and he was the one going against the PMRC fighting them so it is, it’s a form of censorship, and it’s dangerous. It’s people seeing, oh wait, this guy can get cancelled so let’s cancel this guy, let’s cancel this guy, you start cancelling everyone for something bad they did there is going to be nobody left.”

As previously reported, the accusations against Manson were initially spurred by actress Evan Rachel Wood (“Westworld”), who said that the musician “horrifically abused [her] for years.” Since then multiple women have come forward with allegations against the singer, including actress Esmé Bianco (“Game Of Thrones”), who said that the shock rocker treated her “like a prisoner,” humiliated her, cut her torso with a knife, chased her with an ax, and more, and actress Bianca Allaine, who described him as the “most terrifying person [she has] ever met in [her] life.”

Wood has since shared more details regarding her time with Manson as well, including his alleged use of anti-Semitic and racial slurs. She has also claimed that his current wife Lindsay Usich and another woman named Leslee Lane threatened to release underage photos of her to destroy her career.

After all of this news broke, the Los Angeles County Sherriff’s Department confirmed that they were investigating Manson. Allaine also mentioned that she was planning to speak to the FBI.

Since Wood made her initial statement, Manson has been dropped by his manager Tony Ciulla, his label Loma Vista Recordings, his talent agency CAA, and a couple of TV shows. Others that worked with Manson have also come forward, including his former assistant Dan Cleary, who said he witnessed the musician abusing Usich.

Two of his other exes, Rose McGowan and Dita Von Teese, have both commented as well. Von Teese’s statement was the most recent and she said that the “details made public do not match [her] personal experience” with the singer, while also adding that “abuse of any kind has no place in any relationship.”

A number of other musicians have also issued statements including Ellie Roswell (Wolf Alice), who said she once caught Manson “filming up [her] skirt with a GoPro,” Phoebe Bridgers, who said Manson previously “referred to a room in his house as the ‘r*pe room’,” Otep, who said Usich would call her house “hysterical because he was on another drug binge, threatening her life,” Trent Reznor (Nine Inch Nails), who said that he has “been vocal over the years about [his] dislike of Manson as a person,” and Wes Borland (Limp Bizkit), who said that “every single thing that people have said about him is fucking true.” Actor Corey Feldman also claimed that Manson put “spies” into his life as part of a “decades long mental and emotional abuse” campaign.

For his part, Manson claimed that the accusations “are horrible distortions of reality.”
