Marilyn Manson and Twiggy Ramirez were the featured guests on the nationally syndicated "Loveline" radio show with hosts Stryker and Dr. Drew Pinsky on January 14.

Marilyn Manson began a North American tour on Saturday (January 19) in Orlando, Florida, with bassist Twiggy Ramirez back in the band after a six-year absence. According to The Pulse of Radio, Manson told The Star Online that their reunion was "not even about the music. Just to be friends with him is the most important thing." Manson added that Ramirez was back "forever," although he noted, "Forever is a very loose term when you talk about Marilyn Manson."

The return of Ramirez meant the exit of Tim Skold, who has been Manson's main collaborator since 2002. Manson said about his departure, "There's too much tension there. Those two couldn't be on stage with each other, so out of respect for both of them I decided to split with Tim for this tour."

Manson is playing in smaller venues this time around, although in terms of stage production, he said the band will bring "as much as can be fit in there, starting with our egos. At this point, Twiggy and I could just look at each other, set ourselves on fire, bow and be done."

Manson is touring behind his latest album, "Eat Me, Drink Me", which was influenced by the collapse of his marriage to dancer Dita Von Teese. The 38-year-old rocker is currently dating 20-year-old actress Evan Rachel Wood.

Manson also hopes to begin production on his feature directorial debut, "Phantasmagoria: The Visions of Lewis Carroll", later this year.
