SARA LEE LUCAS

Fred Streithorst was drafted as live drummer for Marilyn Manson and the Spooky Kids in the early nineties. Although they had recorded primarily using drum machines beforehand, at this stage they required physical beats as they embarked onto a busy live circuit, and started to gain a growing, hungry fanbase.

Having taken up drumming after a promising sporting career was cut short, leaving one of his legs permanently disfigured, Streithorst played with guitarist and Marilyn Manson founder Daisy Berkowitz in a band called Kinetic Ritual, and it is through this connection that Streithorst joined Marilyn Manson. His injury gained him the slightly cruel nickname 'Freddy The Wheel' due to medical apparatus he had to use on the leg, inidicative of Manson's wry sense of humour. His name was taken from American baking company Sara Lee, and murderer Henry Lucas. He would feature sas studio drummer for Portrait Of An American Family, and tour with the band until his replacement by Ginger Fish in 1995. He was inoffensive, perhaps an easy target for Manson's attempts at character assassination, and would frequently suffer abuse and trashed drumkits during live shows.

The final straw came when Manson sprayed lighter fuel on his kit and set it alight while Lucas was still playing. Taking the plane back to Florida the very next day he left without a further goodbye.

Little is known of what became of Streithorst after he left Marilyn Manson. Though he did drop out of the music scene and returned to 'normal' existence. Last heard he was working for a company in Florida as Head of CD and DVD Manufacturing and Graphic Design department.
