Poor Steven. Talk about "wrong place, wrong time."

I LOVED Jonas Miller Stereo. I hung there a lot in the late 70s, early 80s. I didn't know that that is where Steven worked. I saw Ray Manzarek there once.

Hi all. I worked at Jonas Miller Stereo which became Jonas Miller Sound when it moved to the location in Beverly Hills in the 1970's after Steven had been murdered. Steven Parent never worked in the Beverly Hills location and Jonas never mentioned him in the 10+ years we knew each other. Michael

ProfessorMike, have you read this post?

Thanks, Matt. I had not read it, but the info posted re: Jonas Miller Stereo is indeed correct. My tenure at JMS was '78 - '80 and I am on a first name basis with everyone mentioned - Jonas passed away in '95, I think, but I'm in contact with Sinclair, McCormack & Kreisel. I'll do more digging - it's VERY odd that this never came up in conversation - the Manson killings are a pretty big deal.
