He's taken an abundance of time to get back on his feet, as it were, after being severely injured. Now he's ready to chat about the unfortunate accident, and in a recent interview with Yahoo, he states that while the injuries he sustained are pretty bad, it could have been way 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.”
Manson explains that the accident happened due to a metal support that wasn't secured properly, sending a giant pair of pistols as part of the stage scenery tumbling down.
“I wasn’t trying to climb it,” Manson explained during the same interview. “It started to fall and I tried to push back and I didn’t get out the way in time.”
As far as the damage that was done, Manson came away from the accident needing a metal plate in his leg along with 11 screws. He obviously isn't back to 100% just yet, but he's gone ahead and announced the rescheduled tour dates for what he's had to miss due to the injury.
