Bruno Ceriotti... the man who compiled the information regarding Bobby Beausoleil's "Orkustra" writes:

Hi guys!

First of all sorry for my very bad english but I'm Italian so I do not speak your language very well (!?). Thanks for posting in your blog my "The Orkustra Family Tree - Shows List", and thanks also to keep alive Bobby Beausoleil's music career. If someone of your is interested in another great chapter of Bobby's career like when he was a member of the legendary rock band Love (yes, that band, you know, Arthur Lee, Forever Changes, etc. etc.), please check it out the official authorized biography of the band that I write last year with the help of all the former members of the band still alive (Bobby too of course!). The book, called "My Little Red Book - Love Day-By-Day 1945-1971", is self-published only in ebook format (PDF file) and you can buy-download it through my book's website here for only 20 bucks:

Thanks! cheers,
Bruno Ceriotti

I hope Katie didn't just swear at the guy. LOL

katie8753 said...

I know as much Italian as you know English. LOL.

I think I said "much appreciated", but if I said something bad, please forgive. HA HA.

Bruno Ceriotti said...

You're welcome Katie! Your Italian is good, no problem, I understood what you meant. ha ha

And of course thanks to LynyrdSkynyrdBand and his staff for this terrific blog!!

Thank you for posting this. You can't live in LA without knowing the history of Love and how important they were to the music scene. Even Jim Morrison wanted to be as big as Love. I equate Love to other underground bands that are indie faves but maybe never made the masses, including The 13th floor elevators and moving sidewalks- two bands from texas.

I hope to have some time to download this. While Bobby B really only plays a minor role in Love, they were an amazing band. Sad to see many of the members succumb to Heroin.

I am sure you are familiar with Love Story, an amazing documentary about the band.

Johnny Echols discusses Bobby B being a room mate and on the fringes of Love.

Bryan MacLean has an amazing history- starting as a roadie for the Byrds....has the same hair style as Michael Clarke. Became a Christian and died on Christmas Day.

Snoopy Pfisterer became a modern jungle man- building a tree house, wearing a loin cloth and playing several primitive instruments (even with his toes).

Arthur Lee was both an amazing vocalist and a tragic figure.

I am anxious to read your e-book.

Thanks Bruno! I know I don't know italiana at all. But I tried.

I think it's a beautiful language. Sing song. LOL Bellacimo. I hope that's the word. LOL.

If you like Love you cannot miss my e-book about them, it's all there, everything about the band and their members is there! Buy it and enjoy!!

Your Italian is fine! About the song I think you meant "Bella Ciao"! ah ah ah

Bruno, what I meant was...the Italian language is like music.

When I listen to it, I hear musical notes up and down.

All musical instruction is written in Italian. At least for piano. LOL.

Andante, Subito, Crescendo, Decrescendo, Forte, Fortissimo, Piano, Pianissimo.....

Italian is a BEAUTIFUL language.

Bella Ciao. :)
