ZSA ZSA SPECK

Perry Pandrea - A.K.A Zsa Zsa Speck - was the original keyboard player for Marilyn Manson & The Spooky Kids.
Due to an incredibly short tenure at a formative point in the band's history, his contribution is not considered lasting or noteworthy by Manson enthusiasts overall.

Prior to joining Marilyn Manson & The Spooky Kids, Speck had performed under his birth name in a band alongside original Spooky Kids bass player Brian Tutunick [Olivia Newton Bundy]. Though unconfirmed, it is believed the band was called Mirror Mirror, strangely reflecting the 'MM' that would become synonymous with Marilyn Manson.

Speck's stage name in Marilyn Manson & The Spooky Kids was a combination of Hungarian-American Hollywood film actress Zsa Zsa Gabor, and American mass-murderer Richard Speck, adhering to the initial requirement that all members reference a female cultural symbol and male psychopath to form a new moniker.
Rather cruelly, in his autobiography The Long Hard Road Out Of Hell, Manson describes Speck initially as "an acne-faced nerd named Perry", also elaborating that the only reason for his inclusion was that Manson's primary choice - Madonna Wayne Gacy - had yet to purchase a keyboard at the time of the band's first show. Similarly cruel is Manson's observation that unbeknownst to Speck, his chosen Serial Killer surname was also an adequate slang word for his unfortunate complexion issues. On two occasions therein he is referred to as 'Perry The Pimplehead'.



Speck performed only twice with the band; at their first ever show in a venue called Churchilll's, and a second gig (that Manson calls the "first real show") in a venue called The Reunion Room.
Though the quality is poor, the image to the left shows Speck onstage with Manson at the Churchill's show.

Following these two shows, Speck and the band's original bass player Olivia Newton Bundy were both prompted to leave, being replaced by Madonna Wayne Gacy and Gidget Gein [respectively].



Following his dismissal, Speck reverted back to his birth name as a performer. Musically, he would later play alongside aforementioned - and similarly ejected - Manson bass player Brian Tutunick [Bundy] in Floridian heavy metal outfit Collapsing Lungs, an act Manson is regularly derisive of in the early chapters of his book. Although unconfirmed, it is believed Collapsing Lungs was Pandrea's last musical role.

Little-to-no evidence exists of Pandrea's brief time as Zsa Zsa Speck, and besides historical value, his appearance in the first Marilyn Manson & The Spooky Kids line-up had no ostensible part to play in shaping Manson's mythology or canon overall.
There are no current records of Pandrea discussing his brief tenure with the band, and if rumour is to believed he is now a qualified teacher, still living in his native Florida.
