Christopher Jones Dead at 72



He was a very good friend of mine and the news hit me hard. I was planning to do an article about him at some point and intend to follow through with that soon (hopefully).

Yes he did have a major affair with Sharon. I've heard that some people doubted that, but it is true and I plan to share what I know when I get around to doing the article.

R.I.P. Chris. You are already terribly missed. You were as unique of an individual as anyone. As always, I wish we had so much more time. I know you would give me shit for shedding tears but I honestly can't help it - so please let it slide this time.

Love and miss you my Brother.

Peace out...

Nothing hurts quite like losing an old friend. Best to you in your time of mourning, Max.

Hugs, friend

Sorry to hear the bad news Max. My condolences to you.

Interesting article and was surprised to read that he took up residence in the cottage at the Tate Residence! Did Chris need to be at the actual site of Sharon's death for his own closure?

Max Frost said...

Thanks a lot guys.

Sun King,
Chris was one of Altobelli's clients. He lived with him from time to time in the guesthouse and (I think) in the main house as well.

When Garretson had to return to L.A. For the trial, Rudi invited him back to the house for some closure. Chris was there that night. Garretson remembers this also.

MAX;

Can you tell us more about the Cris / Tate / Atrobelli relationships, especially the timeline concerning Cris/Sharon and what was Atrobelli's real GIG. The MANSON Family is an over explored entity, BUT the REAL Tate FAMILY including all it's connected characters has NEVER been of interest to anyone - especially the cops. Me thinks there is more to the story there.

"Chris was there that night." Max, what night?

Max Frost said...

Carol,
It was the night Garretson came back to the house during the trial.

Robert,
You are right - the other side of TLB is just as mysterious as the murders. But I think most people here already get that. Maybe not most but quite a few.

I have been waiting some time now to hear more about Christopher Jones and Sharon. Could the baby have been his? Was Sharon going to divorce Roman?

Max Frost said...

Troy, thanks for checking in and asking the questions.

I plan on doing an article at some point addressing those questions and more.

Stay tuned. Unfortunately I'm kind of slow when it comes to bringing these articles to fruition. Just ask Matt. ;)

Really sad to lose a dear friend. Max your article would make an excellent memoir for Jones. I keep seeing his name in sixties articles/materials but i'd never found a good bio. He never wrote one? I read he also had an affair with Pamela Courson the girlfriend of Jim Morrison. The stories he could tell....

Max Frost said...

Yes he did have an affair with Pamela. He met Jim through her. He had many affairs and yes A LOT of great stories.

No he never wrote a bio. I was gearing up to get his entire story on video for the sake of preservation but, unfortunately, it never happened.

Thanks Max, it's incredible to communicate with someone who knew those people.
