I didn’t know Tom Malenski, but I’ve been to the club he worked at, Baltimore’s Ottobar. Some rotten news out of there this past week reminds us of the dangers the staff at our favorite venues face each night they work. 
Last week - on his night off - Tom was at the venue and was fatally stabbed while assisting a colleague in removing someone from the club. The assailant has been captured and confessed, but that’s of little comfort to Tom’s family at this horrible time.
If you’d be so inclined, please reblog this post to spread the word and/or donate to help his family: http://www.gofundme.com/f58n84

iTunes note of interest: Alphabetization

For whatever reason, I note that Hüsker Dü appears prior to Huey Lewis and the News in my iPod classic.

"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
