Original Marilyn Manson guitarist Scott Putesky has been diagnosed with colon cancer, reports Miami radio station WLRN.

A founder member of the Marilyn Manson band, going by the pseudonym Daisy Berkowitz, Putesky was key to the development of the outfit’s sound, but left during the recording of second album, ‘Antichrist Superstar’, due to creative differences.

A benefit concert to raise money for Putesky’s medical treatment took place in Miami on Saturday.
