I think Bono would be aware that Manson is a showman in much the same way that he is himself and hence respect that what they preach ultimately is very different. From what I've seen and read about Manson, he is a very intelligent artist who marketed himself as the devil within American society and was very successful because of it.

Brian Warner was a music journalist who set about creating the anti-rock star; although he has become more of a joke in recent years as the effect wears off and the more chat shows he appears on - but such is life.

"he's pretty cool ...for a Christian"-
Marilyn Manson on Bono

I don't remember what the context was but if I had to guess it was when Bono defended him back during the Columbine shootings.

I remember having seen a picture of Bono climbing down to a stage in some video footage. Don't know who were on stage though. Could have been about the Irish rock 'n' roll hall of fame. The lady who was interviewed said something about Bono being 'very very drunk' when he did that.

Does anyone have any more info on this? I have to say I would die to see/hear some footage - being a closet Manson fan in my early teens
I would like to see it too. I remember Iggy Pop from my teenage days!

Found the interview.
YouTube - Dublin Dayz - Irish Music Hall of Fame

The incident is described from ca. 4:23. Bono joined Iggy Pop on stage and then Marilyn Manson joined them both.

The picture isn't in there though, must have seen that somewhere else.

Still no picture, but I found this report of the evening:

"It's one of the most remarkable rock 'n' roll sights that Ireland's ever seen. Marilyn Manson entering stage left, and Bono climbing down from the balcony, to join Iggy Pop for a communal demolition of 'Louie Louie'."

wow thanks for that u2search. i can only imagine iggy pop doing his thing until 'oh christ, here comes bono'. I wonder if they hung out and shared a drink together after, i'd just love to overhear a conversation between Bono and Manson.

Now I remember it tho, a friend who was a big Manson and Nine Inch Nails fan told me she read in Manson's autobiography that when Trent Reznor had signed Manson to his label back in 92/93, he had taken him to see U2 in concert when they were in town. I assume that'd be Zoo TV, I don't think any more detail was given.

Ah yeh in that 'No More Mr.Nasty Guy' interview there's that quote I remember reading:

"He is nice…for a Christian," the 32-year-old cackles. "We were getting beat up by the media during the Antichrist Superstar days and Bono made a statement saying that if nobody else would give us gigs, we could tour with U2. Him expressing his support - at a time when it really wasn't cool to do so - meant a lot."
