MANSON MUSEUM • GINGER FISH
Recently, Ginger agreed to do an interview with me for my website. He agreed to a phone interview or an email interview. Knowing his hectic schedule, I opted to do it by email so he could take his time and work on it when he had opportunity to do so. Emailing each other back and forth, we ended up with the interview you see below. Thanks Ginger, Greg.

"I wish for health and to wake up and feel fine, but that would be a miracle, so at least money to pay doctors to make me feel better."
Is there anything you'd like to say to all of your fans?
"Of Course. Recently I decided it was time to sit down and thank individuals one at a time by e-mailing them. I think I might have been wrong trying to reach out to individuals so what I would really like to say is, I am nothing without you, and when I start to question why I am alive and why do I continue to live the way I do, I notice a person that it makes a difference for and realize my struggle is not in vain. I love each and every fan and promise to continue reaching out to help others because without you I am incomplete and without meaning. I thank you for the support and for keeping my likeness alive. I love you, Ginger."
