Charles Manson the Music Man: Lost Records and a Prosecutorial Song too Crazy to Sing

DISGRACELAND

Jan 1 2023 • 51 mins

In and out of juvie and jail since childhood, Charles Manson learned guitar in prison from the last of the great Depression-era gangsters. He also made music industry connections in jail like the Rolling Stones’ road manager. During the "Summer of Love", Manson bounced from prison and took his act to San Francisco, formed a drug-soaked sex cult, moved the whole Family to L.A., and before you could say “celebrity orgy,” he was hanging with Neil Young, the Mamas and the Papas, and the Beach Boys. Charles Manson was about to be the breakout star of 1969…at least in his own mind. This episode contains themes that may be disturbing to some listeners and includes graphic depictions of violence.
