Biography

Kenneth Robert Wilson (born 28 September 1965 in Framingham, Massachusetts, United States) is an American drummer who is primarily known for playing drums for Marilyn Manson, although he also did brief stints playing with Paul Anka and Barry Manilow. His pseudonym originates from the combination of the names of Ginger Rogers, a dancer, and Albert Fish, an American serial killer, cannibal and pedophile.

Having played drums since he was in second grade, Wilson eventually went to the University of Nevada, Las Vegas to study music; during that time he played with several underground bands from the area. He learned the drums off of Marilyn Manson’s first studio album, Portrait Of An American Family, out of a desire to join the band; in early 1995 he auditioned for the spot. Fortunately for him, he chose exactly the right time to do it as the rest of the band had already agreed to replace their current drummer at the earliest opportunity.

Despite constant band member changes, Ginger is only the second drummer for the band, not counting a previously used drum machine; his playing can be heard on Smells Like Children and every subsequent Marilyn Manson album. He was temporarily replaced by Chris Vrenna for a year when, in 2004, during the Viva Comet Awards, a head injury left him unable to tour; despite this, he remained a member of Marilyn Manson.
