Thread Name: Review: 60's music murders and suicide
Subject: Review: 60's music murders and suicide
What began as an attempt to locate a FREEP (Free Press) article written by
Art Linkletter's daughter Diane in the late 1960's turned into a magical
mystery tour through the musical death-history of Laurel Canyon, Los Angeles.

I stopped looking for Diane Linkletter's article and became enmeshed in a bizarre
labyrinth of murder, suicide, suspicious circumstances and big name bands/musicians.
(The same man that was with Diane the night she died...also was with another curious "suicide.")
Art's son-in-law "caught a bullet" in the head a few weeks before.

If you survived the 60's with a few brain-cells on the correct synaps....perhaps
you will also enjoy the entrigue from this link site. I will not vouch for the
rest of the materials contained here but this is bizarre. Although poorly written.

LOTS OF MULTIPLE MURDERS

Basic sub-title, "Los Angeles Rock Music Intrigue" or "How LA became Hot - While Nashville became Naught"

It runs for 16 chapter/segments...I stumbled into chapter IX. JUST GET PAST...part One...or it will turn you off.

It ain't folk,
It ain't blues
But thank heavens
It is American !

And it is music ! ! !
