Brooks looks more alert than I've ever seen him look.

Brooks is some character...

Who else did more to help bugs create the myth of Manson????

He called Charlie Christ on camera. Pretended to be in a coma for days upon Charlies command, and acted more like a general robot than any of the other guys...

Poor dude never even got laid for his efforts... He seemed more interested in Watkins than any of the girls. Be it Watkins, Charlie or Crockett- he spent this entire time we study prodding around after some other guy...

however- I think he had some legitimate musical talent and his song " young girl" is actually quite good and is playing in my favorite part of the Hendrickson Documentary....

I think he was a weak person with very little self confidence or esteem, but I also think he was mostly honest and unable to hurt others.

If it didn't end up having such a tragic ending he is one of the characters in this story you sort of just shake your head about and laugh at....

but I hope his life turned out o.k.... he was in over his head with those people and he was probably more or less an o.k. guy

I used to wonder about the girl thing and I must admit my shallow mind immediately started to question his sexuality.

But you know- when I first got into the Dead and going to festivals and camping out to see shows- I went through something similar....

for the first time in my life my prissy ass was around woman who didn't shower or shave every day. they acted and dressed in ways that were foreign to me growing up a preppy little punk in NJ... very forward and open and cool as hell- but not someone who I would feel comfortable with in that way. Hopping from tent to tent at night with different guys...

I was having a blast and making lots of cool friends- but it would have turned my stomach to think about getting intimate or psychical with any of them...

I don't think that makes me snobby- people just have different taste. Maybe that was what Brooks felt as well...

I mean the smell and the hygiene at the ranch was disgusting, and VD was everywhere, and the girls were very obnoxious at times so...

maybe Brooks just wasn't turned on??

lol or maybe he was just such a pathetic bean - that none of the girls would have him???

Brooks was probably scared of getting "rashes" from all the poison "bushes" out at Spahn's.

Brooke seemed like a real nice guy It is easy for me to understand how he could have become involed with the family And he was never a part of the dark circle of Manson family members..What Manson is Is not a myth he is truly evil He was a the lead them down this road.

Brooke seems like a really nice guy I can understand how easy it would have been to become involved with the famly at that time it was a way of life that a whole generation was getting into.Manson hated and hates society what a way to get back take a bunch of young people from middle class homes and destroy them He laughs in the camera sticks out his tongue like look at what I have done I think if it was not for Manson the murders would not have happened
