The apple obviously fell far from the tree… Marilyn Manson heads to a party with his dressed down Dad

Known for his quirky stage persona and outrageous image, Marilyn Manson was pictured relatively dressed down as he attended a party for the fifth Sunset Strip Music Festival.
Despite the fact that he is currently dating, American photographer Lindsay Usich, Marilyn opted to take his father Hugh Warner along to the event in Los Angeles.
Proving that the apple does sometimes land miles away from the tree, it was clear that the men don't share the same sense of style, as Hugh kept it simple in polo shirt with a pair of jeans and brown shoes.

Leaving his more unusual attire in his wardrobe, Manson, real name Brian Hugh Warner, donned a black on black ensemble complete with leather trousers and black boots.
He teamed the outfit with an olive green hat as he hid his eyes behind a pair of shades, and painted his neck purple wearing a lashing of red lipstick.
Nicole Richie, Twilight's Kellan Lutz and 90210's Jessica Stroup were among the celebrities in attendance at the party.

The Sunset Strip Music festival will also feature performances by The Offspring, Steve Aoki, Bad Religion and more than 70 artists throughout the day and into the night.
Speaking of what the street festival has to offer, the managing director of the festival Karmen Beck explained: 'This year’s street festival features exciting experiences that will engage our attendees throughout the day.
'In addition to an amazing lineup of artists, they will be able to enjoy some of L.A.’s best food trucks, outdoor beer gardens and lounges, art installations and exciting activations that all celebrate the vibrancy of this eclectic boulevard'.

Last week, Marilyn attempted to avoid the paparazzi heading into the airport – by scrawling obscenities across his face in black pen.
The goth singer, dressed fully in black with hat and mirrored sunglasses, had 'f*** you' written on his face and neck as he entered the terminal at Los Angeles Airport on Friday.
Manson was accompanied by his glamorously-dressed girlfriend Lindsay Usich who seemed more than happy to smile for the cameras.
