Singer and songwriter Jan Terri was in for quite the surprise when she was invited out of the blue to perform at a birthday party in the Los Angeles area in 1998. Who was the birthday girl? Rose McGowan. Who invited Jan to perform? Brian Warner p/k/a/ Marilyn Manson.
Jan Terri’s performance at the birthday party went well and translated to future performances as an opening act for Marilyn Manson shows in the late 90s. These performances from decades ago make for quite reminiscent chatter but her story isn’t just a nostalgic walk down memory lane.

The mind-numbing lawsuit filed against Marilyn Manson as well as Interscope, Nothing Records and 20 unknown identities claims negligence and the aiding and abetting of abuse of minors. Manson denies all claims and as we continue to watch how that unfolds in the court system, it created an interesting topic of discussion with Jan Terri to share about what she observed.
