"It’s an impossible high to recreate. And maybe, I try to tell my father, it’s comparable to what he experienced. It’s very difficult to come off tour and come down from that. It does have an effect mentally, maybe even chemically. It’s not the same as going into combat, but it’s a way of bonding with my father. The idea of living in a different world. And coming home and feeling out of place."
Marilyn Manson compares coming back from a tour to his dad's experience of returning from Vietnam, in an interview with the Guardian's Carole Cadwalladr. Hmm.
