Manson's keyboardist files lawsuit


Stephen Bier, who has performed as the keyboardist in the Marilyn Manson band as Madonna Wayne Gacy, is suing band leader Manson for more than $20 million. Manson, whose real name is Brian Warner, has stopped distributing various sorts of band income to Bier, according to a suit filed Aug. 2 in Los Angeles Superior Court.
