Biography

A talented Scottish singer-songwriter, Shirley Manson found fame as the badass frontwoman for the 1990s alternative band, Garbage, blending a disaffected glamour with a coolly elegant intelligence. Coming up through the Edinburgh clubs, Manson caught the eye of musicians Butch Vig, Duke Erikson and Steve Marker. Coming together as Garbage, the polished, powerful foursome struck gold with albums like 1994's Garbage, 1998's Version 2.0,, 2001's beautifulgarbage and 2005's Bleed Like Me as well as hits like "Only Happy When it Rains," "Stupid Girl," "#1 Crush," "I Think I'm Paranoid," "Special" and "Push It." Tapped to provide the soaring theme to the James Bond flick "The World is Not Enough" (1999), Garbage blew up big, with the effortlessly alluring Manson becoming a Calvin Klein model and a global superstar before the band called it quits in 2007. After pulling the plug on her solo album when she clashed with label execs, Manson joined the cast of "Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles" (Fox, 2008-09) and continued to dabble in the music industry before Garbage reunited for 2012's self-released Not Your Kind of People. Gloriously unflappable and unwavering when it came to her artistic vision, Shirley Manson became and remained a rock icon with an enormously powerful legacy.
