PostSubject: Former Marilyn Manson bassist and LA area artist Gidget Gein was found dead   Sat Oct 11, 2008 2:57 pm

The details are still sketchy, but close friends of musician and artist
Gidget Gein (aka Brad Stewart) tell us he was found dead yesterday of
an apparent OD in his home in Burbank. Considering his macabre
sensibilities, we'd hoped this was some kind of goth stunt, but calls
to the LA Coroner today confirm the passing.

Best known for his tumultuous time in Marilyn Manson (he was kicked
out due to drug problems just as the band was breaking through, and
replaced by Twiggy Ramirez, who many say copped his style and look),
Gein went on to form art gothster faves The Dali Gaggers in New York in
the late '90's. Taking a break from performing, he returned to his
Florida hometown to work as a " bag boy" for the Florida Coroner's
office in 2000. He moved to LA about 5 years ago to pursue his art, and
his dark and beguiling works were often the most talked about at the
city's wildest openings and parties including BlueGirl Events and World
of Wonder exhibits.


Recently out of rehab for what was apparently not the first time,
Gein -whose name is a mesh of serial killer Ed Gein and Sally Field's
60's TV character "Gidget"-had a lot to look forward to. He had just
emailed us a couple of weeks ago about a new band he was playing with
called People (supporting Semi Precious Weapons and Gram Rabbit at
House of Blues last week). Good pal Lenora Claire tells us, "He had
just got a book deal, was recording a record with the guy who produced
the first Janes Addiction record and just landed a solo show at La Luz
de Jesus that he had wanted for years." She says she plans to make sure
the show, set for February of next year, still happens no matter what.

It's sad how many people in the music buisness and the entertainment industry in general die from overdosing on drugs.I guess being talented and having a creative outlet doesn't always make you happy.

^^ I agree, it seems to me that the more creative you are the more depressed you are. I get that impression from alot of my friends, not really sure why. Maybe they realise how crap this world is.

^^ I've noticed the same thing. Every musician I know suffers from depression. It's interesting when you think about it. I just wish some wouldn't turn to drugs.
