AS ALWAYS CHOCK FULL OF GOODIES

REN FAIR WILDNESS UP IN TOPANGA? O MI YES

http://www.theatricum.com/

GODO PROBABLY JUST MISSED BEING A CHILD STAGE SHAKESPEREAN BY A WHISPER TO A SCREAM

THIS THO HAD THE VERY MOST RESONANCE

Cass Elliott turned up in London the very next year, but unlike her former bandmate, her trip abroad was to be one-way; on July 29, 1974, she was found dead in occasional Canyonite Harry Nilsson’s London flat. Ms Elliott, it seems safe to say, knew a little too much about the dark side of Laurel Canyon.

MACKENZIE CAN WE TALK?

REALLY

SHE DID A VERY GOOD JOB IN THIS

AND WHO HER ANCESTORS WERE

IT ALL MAKES MUCH MORE SENSE

Before moving ahead with the John Phillips saga, I first need to pose an extremely important question to all my readers: is anyone out there in the market for a slightly used, covert film studio? If so, then all you need do is pull about $6.2 million out of your penny jar (though in today’s housing market, you might be able to cut a better deal) and Lookout Mountain Laboratory can be yours! And if you act fast, you might be able to get a package deal on the lab and the Hodel house! (the photos in this post are of the lab as it looks today as a converted residential dwelling).

LOOKOUT Management

Elliot Roberts and David GeffenEliot Roberts started Lookout Management in 1967. In 1969. he brought in his friend David Geffen to help sort out some messy problems with Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young. It was at this point that Geffen got the idea for Asylum Records, a label designed to be more "artist friendly" and less corporate. It would be the label that would give the Eagles their start.

Geffen was a friend of Jackson Browne, and Browne was his first client on Asylum. He got Geffen to sign Glenn, but he told Glenn he needed a band to be marketable (he decided Glenn's Longbranch Pennywhistle cohort JD Souther was best as a solo act). The band Glenn got together was the Eagles. They showed up at Geffen's door and Bernie pitched the band to him, ending with a "Here we are. Do you want us or don't you?" Geffen said yes.

Asylum Records and Lookout Management went hand in hand - in fact, the agency was called Geffen-Roberts, and they even had offices in the same building. While Geffen was not officially part of the Eagles' management, the two men basically worked as a team, which could cause conflict of interest occasionally.

That ended when Geffen sold the label to Warner Brothers / Elektra in 1973. The band had no idea he was going to do it, and then once they gound out, were not too happy. Suddenly the overseas promoters didn't care about them anymore, since they knew Warner would be handling them. The Eagles naturally resented this, and felt Geffen had sold out figuratively as well as literally despite the fact that he continued to be their representative at the label.

Roberts, now working on his own as their manager, couldn't seem to handle things nearly as well. However, he was the first to give Don and Glenn higher percentiles of the publishing when before it had been split equally. Still, his company was partially blamed for Desperado's failure to become a hit. The Eagles felt that Roberts no longer cared about them. They were more Geffen's baby, and Roberts had all the money he needed with the merger, so he wasn't too eager to hustle and bustle to get things going for them.

In 1974, Roberts' nerves were shot and he'd had enough. He dumped everybody except Joni Mitchell, Neil Young, and JD Souther. The Eagles wound up with a guy on Robert's management team named Irving Azoff, and were the first act managed by his new company Front Line.

Read an article about David Geffen's rise which also discusses some of his involvement with the Eagles here.

GEFFEN IS DAMN NEAR UNTOUCHABLE LIKE SPEILBERG

HE WAS A FREE MAN IN PARIS YA KNOW

IN 1974

THIS SERIES HAS BEEN NOTHING SHORT OF MINDBLOWING IN EVERY WAY

WERE IT FEATURED AS INVESTIGATIVE JOURNALISM IN A PAPER LIKE THE CRACK COCAINE SERIES IN THE MERCURY

IT WOULD BE NOMINATED FOR A PULITZER IN ITS SCOPE

IT WOULD ALSO MAKE A FANTASTIC BACKSTORY/SUBPLOT TO "THE UNDERGROUND MAN" AS A REMAKE

ITS ALMOST TOO MUCH FOR THE SCOPE OF A 2 HR MOVIE, EVEN AS A DOCUMENTARY

ITS A MINISERIES

THAT'S THE TAGLINE FOR A FILM MARQUIS

"THE SEARCH IS ON....FOR ANY BAND THAT DIDN'T HAVE TIES TO MILITARYINDUSTRIAL COMPLEX"

GOOD LUCK WITH THAT TASK

It's the first I've heard that George Lucas was filming at Altamont.

I watched Gimme Shelter recently. Supposedly the cameraman didn't know he had filmed the black youth in seafoam leisure suit holding the revolver... Would have been pretty hard to miss the knifing sequence, but the long-barreled revolver was held in tight by the guy, not being waived around.

Maybe he was totally drugged and out of it and somebody gave him the gun? He does show up near stage earlier in the movie. Pretty hard to miss the outfit. With the Altamont concert predating Roe V. Wade and the stabbing occurring during "symphony", as Mick says, "bad shit always happens when we play that song". Maybe it was all a setup to foster as a sacrifice? Look at the miscreants involved. Lots of LSD and Speed going around. Was the crowd that took stuff others offered them simply dosed?

There is one super short segment of Gram Parsons w/Burritos singing Christine's Song (she's a devil in disguise, telling dirty lies; sure, kind of a stretch, but that is the line the Maysles' kept in the movie.

Agree that this 19 part (so-far) saga is very worthwhile expose.

Was reading the Philip K. Dick wiki tonite and note that his "insight" that maybe the Roman Empire had never fallen, but acted from then on to keep humanity enslaved by fostering materialism as focus and mode for living is not too far-fetched... Pity that Dick could not go beyond his VALIS insight and transmute it into Knowing Christ. The escape from self was the perspective he simply never achieved...

The Reality of Christ Jesus defies definition as "meme", or commonly held belief.

In Christianity, Belief leads to Faith which leads to acting upon your Faith, if the faithful person decides to declare his/her heart to God, and thereby is Brought Into Knowing; becoming Born-Again... This witness is Real as is God manifest in Trinity. Christ IS The Way Unto The Father, and Knowledge supersedes all else in life, coming as it does through experience, awareness, and understanding.
