Bobby BeauSoleil Butchers "Angel"

Bobby Beausoleil has recorded a cover of Sarah McLachlan's song "Angel." I'm not going to say much about it, except......(IMO) he really should of learned a trade in prison, like welding, or commercial house painting, or something, because there is no way in hell he could be released from prison, and make a living as a singer. Apparently, there are others that share that same sentiment. I will quote California BPH Deputy Commissioner James Martin, who stated at Mr. Beausoleil's last hearing, which was held in 2010:
"Mr. Beausoleil, I find that your parole plans are unrealistic, and almost completely insufficient. Several places in your materials, you describe yourself as an artist, and you've told the Board today, and in the materials that you've submitted, that you're a videographer, a composer of music, an artist. This member of the Board doesn't think those are the sort of solid, reliable skills that you can bank on. I noted that you almost dismiss your skills and training in electronics, printing, and sheet metal. Those aren't the things you want to do, it sounds like to me. Well, sir, it is likely that your life after prison will not be about performing, and glamour. It will take effort, and thoughtful stradegy for you to survive, and I don't believe you've made enough planning in those regards. Your past public figure status, your pursuits with music, those memories you have of playing with certain bands, that's not going to serve you in the future, and it's not realistic to think that it will."
