  1. This comment has been removed by the author.

  2. Sorry, I didn't do that and it won't let me delete.

  3. I’m Southern, a man, and can truthfully say that I don’t need you around, anyhow.

  4. Never much liked him back then. Have to say my opinion has not changed a bunch


  6. He's getting to where he looks like his music sounds.

  7. now those that protested the establishment, are the establishment
    Step out of line, the men come and take you away, for what it's worth

  8. His face looks just like the back end of the West Virginia Governor Jim Justice's hound. Both need a heavy application of Preparation-H.

  9. Through it all, like Keith Richards, Neil Young has managed to keep his good looks and that's what's important these days.

  10. Weird Scenes Inside the Canyon
    How did an uncanny amount of rock superstars emerge from the rustic Laurel Canyon scene of the mid 60s when the primary music centers of the US at that time were NYC, Nashville, and Detroit? Why were many of these future stars sons and daughters of the military/intelligence complex and extreme privilege who just happened to all arrive in LA at the same time? From the Lizard King Jim Morrison to Frank Zappa, the Mamas and Papas, the Byrds, Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young, even the Monkees, they all had conspicuous family heritages that did not exactly jive with what would become the free love, anti war soundtrack of a generation. Meanwhile, looming behind these musicians was a dark underbelly of Hollywood stars, young turks, the mob, shadowy intelligence assets, and charmers like little Charlie Manson who everyone liked at first.. How and why did this all happen? And what about that covert military installation on Lookout Mountain? Are you ready to have your rock and roll fantasies challenged? You may never listen to this music the same way ever again.

    What Lookout Mountain Laboratories was designed for, and what it is now.
    Jim Morrison’s father’s involvement in the Vietnam war. ( Gulf of Tonkin )
    Morrison as an anti-war idol and his surprisingly scarce background in music.
    Hippie-era bands that all had connections to government intelligence.
    Crosby, Stills and Nash’s connections to important historical figures.
    Frank Zappa’s father was a chemical warfare engineer.
    Jackson Browne born in post-war Germany.
    Early history of The Byrds appears suspicious and possibly casted.
    The rise of hippie culture and music clubs in Los Angeles.
    How The Young Turks of Los Angeles contributed to the popularization of clubs.
    The Hippie/Rockefeller connection.
    Charles Manson as a leader and a member of the Los Angeles music scene.
    The Wonderland Murders.
    The surprising number of stars whose parents committed suicide.
    Were these hippie musical figures groomed to undermine the anti-war movement?

    1. I've read that book too, although I can't remember the title.

      Awfully convincing.

  11. Who's the homeless guy?

  12. "Chaos: Charles Manson, the CIA, and the Secret History of the Sixties" by Tom O'Neill (with Dan Piepenbring)

    BTW, I lived around the corner from the LaBiancas in LA. Sadly they were deceased decades before I got there.
