Chaos, horror, revenge and retribution - the themes of cult drama Sons Of Anarchy suit Marilyn Manson down to a T. Ron Tully was the part he was born to play - and Manson sees meaning in everything.

When asked if being in Sons Of Anarchy had inspired his music, Manson replied: "Everything is absorbed, and it comes out, so I would say yes - a lot of the music that I heard and a lot of the things I learned from the six years of watching the show, and then getting to be on it.

"Initially, I was just supposed to have a song on Sons Of Anarchy, instead I got to act on it. That was for my father, who I was trying to distract and confuse from moving from Ohio after my mother died to California, and it worked."

He added: "I like the fact that in life, Charlie Hunnam and Tommy Flanagan stood up for me as if it were the same as characters in the show, and I'd just met them and become friends with them. I'd never had siblings and I've never had people that I could always count on to stand up for me in any situation."  

See our interview where Manson explains what it was like to play Tully as a redneck, his favourite and least moments from the show, how Sons Of Anarchy feeds his love of 'revenge and retribution" and when one deserves to get 'fucked up'.
