Notorious 1960s serial killer Charles Manson has sent Marilyn Manson an open letter from his prison cell.

The rocker, whose real name is Brian Warner, took the latter half of his moniker from Manson's surname and his first half from actress Marilyn Monroe.

A number of Manson's bandmates took similar stage names, with the likes of Twiggy Ramirez, Ginger Fish and Madonna Wayne Gacy also inspired in the same way.

The postcard, which leaked online via Loudwire earlier this week, is largely abstract, but has a slightly threatening undertone to a number of its passages.

Charles Manson wrote: "To Marilyn Manson, It’s taken me a long time to get there from where I could touch M. Manson. Now I got a card to play – you may look into my non-profit, ATWA, and give Manson what you think he’s got coming for Air, Trees, Water, and you. Or I will pay Manson what you think Manson got coming – the music has make Manson into Abraxas Devil, and I’m SURE you would want some of what I got from what I got. It’s a far out balance."

He continued: "Beyond good and bad, right, wrong. What you don’t do is what I will do – what you did a sing-along, and let it roll and said how you saved me a lot of steps – I don’t need, it’s not a need or a want. Couped – coup. Ghost dancers slay together and you’re just in my grave Sunstroker Corona-coronas-coronae – you seen me from under with it all standing on me. That’s 2 dump trucks – doing the same as CMF 000007. Charles Manson."

Charles Manson was convicted of being behind a string of murders in Los Angeles in 1969, including the slaying of pregnant actress Sharon Tate. He is currently imprisoned in California State Prison in Corcoran.

Marilyn Manson is currently touring in support of his eighth studio album 'Born Villain', which was released in May of this year.

He will play a joint UK arena tour with Rob Zombie later this year, with the pair joining forces for four UK arena shows. The run of gigs kicks off in London on November 26 at the O2 Arena. They will then play Manchester Arena on November 27, Glasgow SECC on November 28 and finally Birmingham's National Indoor Arena on November 29.
