Gidget Gein, best known as the former bassist for Marilyn Manson, was found dead in his Burbank, CA home on October 8th, 2008 from an apparent drug overdose. He was 39. Born Bradley Mark Stewart, Gein played with Marilyn Manson in their formative years of 1989-1993, just before the band started their string of hits. His playing is featured on 1994’s debut album Portrait of an American Family. Despite Gein’s noted talent and remarkable songwriting, he was asked to leave the band in 1993 after a drug overdose, which Manson ruefully recounted in his 1998 autobiography, The Long Hard Road Out Of Hell. Gein’s death marks his final loss against a life-long battle with drugs.
