LoLo said...

where did you get this pic? Do you have any info on Chuck, like what's he been doing all these years etc.

Totally off topic: Nikolas Schreck wrote a new book. Coming soon in English. Updated "Manson Files".

Great pic, Liz... good to see that at last some of the family still look like hippies rather than suburban matrons :-)

Thanks for the heads-up on Shreck's iupdated book. The original Manson File was always one of my favourite Manson books. Back in the days before the internet, it was one of the only sources of alternate theories to Helter Skelter. I wonder when it'll be released....

Went from David Cassidy to Old Man Winter, didn't he?

The Surf Bat said...

MATT- My thoughts exactly! The Winter Warlock....

i have it from a good source that-

all these years ~
he has been growing that beard.
that's about it.

And i didn't find this one, one of the researchers did.

Chuck was a wannabe who arrived after he read about the murders in the paper. He was stupid enough to get a ten year prison term out of joining the Family after it began to disentigrate.

SJ said...

I agree, Mr Poirot. There is a picture of Chuck on Mark Turner's site and Charlie has written on it 'I never met this person'.

Matt said...

A couple of the members that showed up after the murders are important figures in the tale nevertheless.

I suggest you read Robert Hendrickson's new book DEATH TO PIGS. In it, he brings up an important reason why some of them (especially Kevin) should be studied harder.

I won't say why, though. Read the book.

BTW, RH is now offering the entire package (the book and both video DVD's for $139.00!).

SJ said...

Yeah, I really want to get Death To Pigs. It is an extra $40 to ship to England. Maybe I will get it for Christmas!

I don't know anything about the present day Chuck, but he was in my 5th grade class at Bassett Street Elementary School in Van Nuys, CA. All I remember about him is he was originally known as Chuck Brown, then one day he was Chuck Lovett. He's in the class picture. I can't find him anywhere after 5th grade. I saw a picture of him at Spawn Ranch in a news story back in the 70's but didn't know he was involved in the robbery/shootout and sentenced to prison until yesterday. I'll try to post his picture in a few days.

I went to high School with Chuck at Birmingham High Schhol in Van Nuys. We were fairly good friends and spent many a summer day dropping by his house. In regards to a previous comment i wouldnt say he was ever the David Crosby peacenik type of guy like many others of us were.

Matt said...

To you two folks that knew him, we'd love to hear more. Use my email address on the blog & drop me a line...

msamerican said...

I went to Birmingham also but have no memory of Chuck there, only in the 5th grade.
I've always wondered how much of his 10 yr. sentence he actually served and where he served it.

Matt said...

msamerican, if you like send me that 5th grade pic. We'd be happy to post it.

RICK said...

There is a picture of him in one of my years books from Birmingham High School maybe the 68 book

Matt said...

Hey Rick, would you be kind enough to scan it and email to me?

He got out of Tehachapi 1976, I have pics of him in prison & on the street. His answer to what he did, "I just fed the horses"... He was a hell of an Artist and learned to tattoo in prison.
