Manson postponed his tour and is spending his time recuperating at home--but he's seen the gruesome footage. "I only recently watched the video of it," Manson told Yahoo Music. "I can see how it could look terrifying. It was terrifying for me, because the truss was not secured properly."
"I wasn't trying to climb it," he added. "It started to fall and I tried to push back and I didn't get out the way in time. I'm not sure what I hit my head on, but it did fall onto my leg and break the fibula in two places. The pain was excruciating."
Despite the serious injury, Manson was glad the damage wasn't worse. "It definitely could have crushed my skull and my ribs," Manson said. "I have some minor bruising in that area, but it took six guys to pull it off of me. It was like wrestling a giant iron monster." Read morehere.

The new, industrial strength version starts with about a minute of electronic noise, then as synth sounds wash into the mix, spare piano notes gradually seep in. For the first two minutes, the song sounds actually sounds like something from the duo's Academy Award-winning soundtrack for The Social Network. Then, Carpenter's familiar, unnerving minor-key melody begins, accompanied by an undercurrent of Nine Inch Nails-style dissonance.
At the 4:40 mark, Reznor and Ross take over again with creepy-crawly noises that are perfect for, well, Halloween, before hints of Carpenter's simple, unforgettable hook returns and the musicians introduce a driving electro-beat.
"I clearly remember my friends and I at 13 years old conning our parents into letting us see Halloween when it came out in 1978," Reznor said in a prepared statement. "We left the theater forever changed. We were damaged and scarred, with the s genuinely scared out of us and that theme stuck firmly in our heads. John Carpenter, it's your fault that I turned out the way I did." Listenhere.

"I guess I've rediscovered my love for writing, my love for music. It seemed to evolve quite organically because I've been sending Lindsey my little rough demos, and he's sort of refined them and reshaped them into what's turned out to be our best material ever, I think."

You know what, if that's not fame and power that will get me to do that for someone else, then I don't know what is." Watch ithere.
