Too bad he and Charlie Manson didn't get a chance to collaborate.
Right, that combo might've caught Terry Melcher's ear at last!
Charlie did have some catchy tunes. I remember the 1981 event like it was yesterday! I was watching TV when it happened live! I couldn't believe what I was seeing! Wild times...
I remember the aftermath of the Sharon Tate murders in 1969. My dad used it as fodder to condemn ALL hippies.
I watched some of his video a couple of weeks ago...Manson was the first thing I thought of.
This probably won't last long...
the majesty of love... lots of clocks in that room! tic toc tic toc!
If I just heard that without knowing anything else about the writer/singer....it would just be an "OK" song....
But knowing what we do, it's horrid. Even the lyrics take on bizarre meanings.
"Casey Kasem here with a long distance dedication to Jodie from John..."
If I just heard that without knowing anything else about the writer/singer I would just think it was a crap song by some no-talent, stoner folkie. Only the fact that it was Manson makes it at all interesting.
Will JFA remain the best musical thing to result from his actions? Hmm.
Hope he stays well, sounds doubtful given changes to his therapist I was reading about.
Having been a social worker for 11 years, I get that mental illness can make a person do things that are evil, though the person in the illness's grip may not be truly evil.
And I was hardly a fan of the person whom Hinkley tried to assassinate.
Even so, please don't patronize these songs or this person. Evil acts, even if done by someone suffering from mental illness, gotta be as shunned as shun can be, it seems to me. We've got enough shrugging off of violence in this country to deal with as it is.
Having lost some friends to violent crimes, the wrenching pain this causes is too deep and endless for us to send any kind of signal of acceptance. Even just the distant one of listening.
Let Hinkley be an island unto himself. Sad to say, but some lines, once crossed, for any reason......
A very flat affect wont sell
downloads, cassettes, records, Cd's mp3's or appeal to grandma's seizures.
I knew simon cowell was on tdpri.
you say that but if Pyle from Full Metal Jacket released 'songs from the latrine' it is gonna get some eyeballs.
Ode to Jodie...
100%. His tweet announcing "I'm now a singer/songwriter" popped up for me yesterday as a "you might like" and I literally gasped. Like I said, hope he's well but it's completely dystopian how we monetize fame. That old saw about no second acts in American life... Fitzgerald couldn't have foreseen how thoroughly mass media would refute it.
I like that your 'social media' thought you would like it! ha ha!
Thanks. And I don't mean to shame anyone who checked out his songs. Music is magnetic, indeed. Curiosity is often pretty innocent. We all decide this for ourselves, etc. I'm just hyper-sensitive to this kind of stuff. Some crimes/acts I just can't or don't want to summon anything for, if that goes against my disgust.
So pardon is asked the many fine people here if what I wrote seemed self-righteous. I'm not judging you. I'm just saying, "Please give moral vomit the wide berth that I think it deserves."
