Charles Manson: Music, Mayhem, Murder
In Charles Manson: Music, Mayhem, Murder, author Tommy Udo retraces the links between Manson and the music industry, covering Manson’s metamorphosis from folk singer to some kind of anti-establishment icon/heavy metal poster child. Unfortunately the entire book is plagued with factual errors. I wouldn’t recommend it to anyone.
Book Description: Detailed account of Manson’s life, including his attempt to break into the LA scene of the mid ’60s, to his bizarre relationship with the Beach Boys, his obsession with The Beatles, his demo releases from prison which achieved quadruple platinum sales, the resultant lawsuit to ban his royalties, his influence on Guns n’ Roses, and his links with ne-Nazi rock underground.
