1. Marilyn Manson Collapsed During His Show Saturday at The Woodlands
MARILYN MANSON collapsed four songs into a show in Houston on Saturday night. He's currently on the Twins of Evil tour with ROB ZOMBIE.
Manson had pretty much gotten through "Sweet Dreams" when he went down, after spending the song supporting himself on his mic stand.
The word is that he's suffering from food poisoning although earlier in the show he told the crowd he had "heat poisoning."
Photographers were even asked to leave the pit area before the show, because Manson didn't want to be photographed in the state he was in.
Manson and Zombie usually sing "Helter Skelter" together, but when it came time on Saturday, Zombie had to handle it solo. He told the crowd, quote, "My dear friend Mr. Manson is feeling under the weather. He’s probably on the bus feeling like crap."
Here's some closer footage of @marilynmanson collapsing during "Sweet Dreams" and a roadie coming out to check on him. You can see how tired and shaky he looks during the song. We hope he gets better soon! • • • Video credit: David M #MarilynManson #SweetDreams #TwinsofEvilTour #RobZombie #TheWoodlands #Houston #Radio #RodRyanShow
He posted an apology on his Twitter about his performance
Thanks Houston for being understanding. I ended up in doctor’s care, but I gave it my best and you guys were amazing.— Marilyn Manson (@marilynmanson) August 20, 2018

9. The new Lynyrd Skynyrd documentary premiered on Showtime Saturday night.
We've all heard the story about the band's name Gary Rossington's gym coach in Jacksonville was Leonard Skinner, and tossed him out of gym class for having long hair. Nope. Founding member Bob Burns says it actually started with that novely song about summer camp, "Hello Muddah, Hello Fadduh", which ALSO mentions Leonard Skinner. It became a running joke with the band. Then, Gary just happened to get a gym coach with the same name later on.
