Charles Manson

A living, walking example of the hippie dream gone terribly awry, before Manson and his family went on the killing spree that virtually undermined and eventually destroyed the peaceful atmosphere of the Southern California community, the fledgling musician tried several times, unsuccessfully, to land a recording contract.

First venturing to California in the mid-'50s, Manson soon found himself serving yet another stint in prison (by age 30 he had lived half of his life behind bars). But, after a time spent living in Washington state, Manson arrived in Southern California in 1967 in hopes of becoming a hippie singer/songwriter. Settling in Topanga Canyon, the quasi prophet met several of L.A.'s most prominent musicians including Neil Young, Dennis Wilson, and Doris Day's son, producer Terry Melcher. The very idea that someone like Manson was fraternizing with a Beach Boy and the son of Doris Day is indicative of the blurred reality that existed in Southern California at the time. Yet, though his music and views are easily dismissable today, at the time several people in the community, including Neil Young, believed in Manson enough to try and secure him a record contract. Throughout 1968, Manson made demo tapes with Gregg Jakobson and Terry Melcher and, with the influence of Dennis Wilson, came close to inking a deal with Brother Records, the imprint of the Beach Boys. In fact, the group reworked Manson's "Cease to Exist," re-titling it "Never Learn Not to Love" and included it on their 20/20 LP. By 1969, however, Manson and his family of hippie outcasts had suitably scared away any potential recording contracts with their increasingly disturbing behavior, and Manson never released an album of his work as a free man.

After his arrest, however, the impending media blitz of the trial created interest in Manson's music, albeit for somewhat dubious reasons, and fringe labels such as Performance and White Devil released his albums such as Lie and Commemoration. Manson also saw one of his songs recorded by the biggest rock & roll band in the world at that time when Guns N' Roses included a poorly received Manson composition on their 1993 covers album, The Spaghetti Incident? ~ Steve Kurutz, Rovi

Charles Manson a hippie? He was the antithesis of what hippies stood for.
hahahahahaha h a h a h a
Charles was more talented than Marilyn (Manson). I know they're not related I just am comparing them.
Listening to Charles Manson is kind of similar to listening to most Norwegian Death Metal. What do they have in common? They're evil.Not supporting it just am fascinated by it.
I didn't know Axl Rose covered a Charles Manson song until now.
charles manson was an great artist

Charles Manson and John Lennon - similar artists? If you consider murder a common bond.
It is very offenive to compare Syd Barrett with this piece of human garbage. Why is this song even on Pandora? It should not be.
WTF is right. Pandora, fix your links! I click the link for Shirley Manson from Angelfish/Ga r b a g e not this Manson.
whoah wtf how did i end up here?!
this man could sing and sing very well and so could the family i personally think they shoulda hit it big
how are charles and Shirley related, that's what I need to know. Hot chick and psychopath killer. why does his name pop up?
what happins when life lives you bored????
Too bad this guy couldn't sing.
Charles Manson's saga is the reason most geniuses become recluses, avoiding human contact as much as possible. Both educating and murdering are illegal. They're hopeless.
