Paul and Steve; Trent and Marilyn

Maybe it's something in the water, but today seems to be the day for people with long-over associations to trash them heavily: Paul Di'Anno took Steve Harris to task for being controlling and powering a boring band, while Trent Reznor thinks Marilyn Manson is simultaneously a backstabber and a disappointment to himself that was pushed to being a jerk because he and Trent had a falling out.  And yes, it took me three tries to write that last sentence because Trent's quote really reads like he's trying to excuse Manson while calling him out:
"Things got shitty between us and I'm not blameless," Reznor admitted. "The majority of it though was coming from a resentment guy who finally got out from under the master's umbrella and was able to stab him in the back."
Fun stuff for a slow afternoon.
