Do you remember that pictoral of Maynard from Tool as Charlie? Well, here is everything you ever wanted to know about it. Incidentally, it is also very hard to find now.

Also in the piece are POPsmear publisher James Morel, Streetwalkin' Cheetahs/POPsmear's Frank Meyer, Dead Boys' Jimmy Zero, Adolescents' Tony Reflex, ADZ's Bruce Duff, Angry Samoans' Jeff Dahl, porno stars Sharon Mitchell and Veronica Hart, the Stiff Ones' Texas Terri, and others.

Maynard himself moved out to the desert. Arizona though. I read that he likes to shoot at people who trespass on his property with a paintball gun. Interesting guy.

No prob! The pic of Jay Sebring kind of looks like he is about to be shot by Jim Morrison. Just made me think about reading the book "Jim Morrison: Life, Death, Legend" it states that Morrison had been interviewed by the police after the murders because he had been overheard talking and the murders before they happened. Another chapter discusses a night in 1968 when Morrison brought into the studio a musician named Wes (Charlie Manson vibes) and one of the Manson girls. It doesn't say which girl it was but apparently she was in a pill induced stupor and was giving up backdoor services to whomever was interested.
Sorry to kind of wander off topic!

I've always wondered if the TOOL song "Eulogy" might have been influenced by the whole Manson saga. I'm not sure how much MJK was "into" the whole Manson story, but the lyrics could definately be about these sad group of people

Pattys not sure if you can do that but you can post a link to them. Matt, is that right?

Matt said...

Yes you post links if you can utilize html tags. No pics, though.

Bill, just send them to Patty and she'll figure something out for you.
