“Marilyn Manson is a hero of ours,” Alkaline Trio frontman Matt Skiba told Spinner when the band stopped by the Interface. “We’ve asked him to do videos with us and stuff, which he’s also agreed to do. He was very nice about it and then we blew it somehow.”
“Being too frightening,” drummer Derek Grant chimed.
“He heard we did way too much drugs and never slept,” Skiba said, ” which isn’t true. So he didn’t want to do it.”
You can see the band covering Tegan and Sara’s track “Wake Up Exhausted” at Spinner’s Interface.
