On May 9, Sean McGrann, 31, was killed in a tragic accident in Washington, D.C. He was touring with Marilyn Manson as the lighting crew chief for Upstaging, the tour's main lighting contractor. McGrann apparently fell about 90' from the catwalk in the D.C. Armory, the day before the band performed there. The crew was on a day off and there were no witnesses to the accident.
John Huddleston, Upstaging's general manager, says that he remembers the day in 1986 when he first met McGrann,
