"I Slept WIth Charlie Manson" by Alex Chilton

It is constantly fascinating to find new connections between musicians and Manson; he really was the Kevin Bacon of the 1960s with direct connections to the Beach Boys (who recorded one of his songs) and a slew of other celebrities.

A recent story in Vice on Big Star led me to Google “Chilton Manson.” In the results, Pitchfork’s piece of the Alex Chilton bio A Man Called Destruction clears the picture:

In 1968, teen phenoms the Box Tops were opening for the Beach Boys when they took a break from touring. The band’s singer, Alex Chilton—barely old enough to vote at the time—was crashing at Dennis Wilson’s house in Pacific Palisades with a motley crew of musicians and hangers-on. Among them was Charles Manson, who was a struggling songwriter and not yet the decade’s iconic bogeyman. The morning after an unimaginably wild party, Chilton awoke groggy and confused to find Manson sprawled out on the couch next to him. It was, the young singer decided, time to go back to Tennessee.  

Around 20 years later, in the early 1990s, Chilton asked music journalist Holly George-Warren to co-write a book… His potential title: I Slept with Charlie Manson. 

Sadly, I Slept with Charlie Manson never progressed beyond the planning stages

It will fascinate you…
to learn that not only do Bryan Adams and Ryan Adams share similar names, they share the same birthday… and as of today’s new LP “Ryan Adams,” it looks like they now also share the same font!
