New Staff at LSB3.COM!
Please join me, in welcoming Leary, Cease2, 
Venus and Sunset77 to our staff. 
They have been added as "Authors", and going forward, 
they will be writing threads for our blog.  
I look forward to their many contributions!  I'm sure each will bring something new, unique and interesting to the table.

Many Thanks to Leary, Cease2, Venus and Sunset77 for officially joining our research team.

I apologize for the long wait.
I spoke to some of you, quite some time ago.
Unfortunately, it took me a bit longer to communicate with everyone, than I expected... and then my computer died... etc, etc, etc.

I will be sending each of you a brief "tutorial" in the coming days, on how to create and save drafts.
Stay tuned...

I will be sending you a "google invitation".
You have to "join" the blog for this to be complete.
When you receive the "invitation"... just follow the basic directions.
It's basically two "right clicks" of the mouse.
(Believe me... if Venus can figure it out...) LOL!
Just kidding Venus! : )

Welcome Aboard Everyone!

johnnyseattle said...

Those are some wonderful additions to the Skynyrd Family: Leary, Cease2, Venus and Sunset77.

In Ronnie Van Zant parlance, now that you got your 'mules' there Lynryd, I know you will be rocking on stage with some more 'FreeeeBirddd yeah....'

All you need is a Roneckerman!

Thanks Lynyrd. You've "opened the books". Just like in Goodfellas. ...Hope I don't meet Tommy's fate.

Good luck, good-hearted Saint. With the SCR gig.

Hi to all. x

I love that phrase, 'opened the books.'
Of course, you do understand that the only way out is feet first....cause, 'once you're a jet you are always a jet from your first cigarette to your last dying breath'

katie8753 said...

Venus, I told Lynyrd that he needed to make you the "Jay Sebring Expert". LOL. I can't wait to see what you come up with cutie pie!

Cease & Sunset, you both are so good at researching and coming up with interesting little known facts. And Leary, I'm hungering for your "what if" threads. All of you should have GREAT threads!! :)

Hi St. Looking forward to your interview tomorrow. I'm sure you'll do a great job!

CarolMR said...

Congrats to all!

You of course, have an open staff invitation.
If you're ever interested in joining our staff, just name your title.
(Just don't pick "administrator"... that one's already taken). LOL!

Let's see... "Legal Advisor"?
Nah... that's boring as toast.

I've GOT IT!

1. adviser to organized-crime boss: an adviser to the leader of a crime syndicate

Anonymous said...

that's GOOD Lynyrd!!!
Snag that title Dilligaf

katie8753 said...

Maybe Leno should have had a Consigliere.

"I'll make him an offer he can't refuse".

He and Rosemary might still be driving around in that boat on Lake Isabella as we speak. HA HA.

katie8753 said...

Couldn't you just see a horse's head in Charlie's bed...err Hostess Bread Truck....Van...Bus....or wherever it was he slept. HA HA.

Meanie Rhysie said...

Popping in to say *Congratulations* to Leary, Cease2 and Venus! Have fun with it all and don't stress!

Dilligaf said...

Here is some advice: Leave the gun, take the cannoli....

LynyrdSkynyrdBand said...


Solid advice as always...

Mrstormsurge said...

I, for one, welcome our new overlords and if you need me to, you know, rat on anyone here just let me know

leary7 said...

"leave the gun, take the canoli".
words to live by for sure. and one of my all-time favorite movie lines.
I thought Mr Dill should be Professor Emeritus but Consigliere is perfect.
It is a real joy in my life to hang out here and share ideas and thoughts with some really cool and provocative folk (Trilby, come back please). And thanks especially to Lynyrd for all his hard work and just being such an old time stand-up guy.
Let's howl at the moon, curse the wrong turns of Charlie, remember and respect those who paid the ultimate price, and just keep our minds spinning with new thoughts and ideas about an event and time that still resonates with us all.

too damn late Mrstormsurge, I've already ratted you out to these amazingly wise, strong, and dare I say heroic Blog Overlords...LOL

seriously, Leary7 said a mouthful. lets move the ball forward.

beauders said...

hi guys i just found on youtube an interview by born again christian bob larson with james mason, michael moynihan and boyd rice. this interview includes doris tate and these people are extremely rude and cruel to her. as usual she shows grace and class. these guys were all friends with schreck until their little power group imploded. just go to youtune and type in james manson, michael moynihan and boyd rice vs. bob larson. i heard this live and it's just as outrageous today as it was in the early 90's.

beauders said...

oops i am so used to typing manson that i typed wrong it's james mason not james manson.

sunset77 said...

Thanx for the add Lynyrd and thanx to everyone for the welcome comments.

This will be a bit of a work in progress for me, plus I don't have any "new" material right now.

Finally, the Phil Kaufman interview is up on CieloDrive. It can be heard on YouTube HERE

Marliese said...

Some of my favorites all together...this will be great reading!

Venus said...

Katie, I've been thinking about doing a thread about Jay and you've convinced me to go ahead and go for it, will work some more on it later.

I have other ideas too tho, LOL

Venus said...

Oh! Thanks to everyone else for their kind welcome!

katie8753 said...

Archie is staring at me. LOL.

Hi guys! Venus I can't wait to see what you come up with. We still have to get in Jay's house and have a peek. LOL.

katie8753 said...

Beauders I watched part of that interview you were talking about.

I don't know why Doris wasted her time on those kinds of people.

She mentions in the interview that Sharon didn't know Manson. I believe her. I don't know why some people think she did know Manson.

katie8753 said...

Hey Marliese, did you catch Circumstance's interview last night?

MrPoirot said...

Topanga 1898

There are rocks out there in the Santa Susana Mountains where there are wagon wheel tracks still visible. A lot of cool history out in those hills.

katie8753 said...

I wonder if Charlie knew Ray Charles. I'm sure somebody will say he did, but he didn't.

katie8753 said...

OK sweet dreams baby dolls.

This is one of my favorite videos:

Back to the days of Christopher Robin.

I think I posted the same video twice. Sorry. I'm working WAY too hard. I've gotta get some rest. LOL.

Marliese said...

Katie said>>>Hey Marliese, did you catch Circumstance's interview last night?<<<<<

Hi Katie, No, i didn't. I wanted to, but the time just didn't work out. It's on at 5:00 here, and more often than not, we're off doing something then.

And bobby, what's this my name being mentioned? I'm not feeling good about any hint of an idea that St C would have been embarrassed over the fact that he's always been fair to me...unlike some other people on the blogs.

LynyrdSkynyrdBand said...

Brian joked that Marliese and Saint seemed to have a "cyber crush" on each other.

Brian asked Saint if there were any truth to that notion.
After a long pause... Saint said his wife was kicking him in the leg... LOL

The conversation changed topics.

It was all in good fun.

Let's not start a big hulla-baloo over nothing folks.
It's been a long week.

LynyrdSkynyrdBand said...

Saint did a good job.

He started by discussing the Schreck and Maury Terry books... specifically, how both authors explore alternative influences, such as the "Process Church" and "Scientology" (in their respective books).

Saint talked about his "Laurel Canyon" theories.

He did some victims' advocacy stumping.

He related a few of his humorous "Uncle Cheech" stories. LOL
(That was my favorite part)

It was all pretty laidback and loose... like a fireside chat.

LynyrdSkynyrdBand said...

C'mon Bob...
No need to become a lurker.
You're "family" brother!

LynyrdSkynyrdBand said...

How's the maple syrup hobby going?

Marliese said...

I'm not starting anything.

I didn't hear the broadcast, and hearing that my name was mentioned, am asking because I would personally be mortified if St. C was embarrassed about the fact that he's always been respectful, whether we've agreed or disagreed.

katie8753 said...

Hi Marliese. Sorry you missed the interview. You can catch the podcast if you want.

I don't think it's possible to embarrass St. Circumstance. LOL. It was just a harmless light-hearted moment. No one has anything to be embarrassed about. Just good clean fun.

katie8753 said...

Bobby you made a comment on "another blog" about why would the Family worry about Shorty taking over Spahn's Ranch when they were moving to DV.

You were right.

The reason Shorty was killed was because Charlie thought Shorty knew too much about the TLB murders. These people were shooting their mouths off all over the place about "killing pigs", and Shorty was picking up on it. That's why he was killed.

Charlie was already thinking about going to the desert back in July of 1969. After he shot Crowe, he was afraid of the Black Panthers. He thought he killed Crowe and was paranoid about the aftermath.

This was the reason that Gary was killed. Charlie thought he had inherited $5000 and he wanted it to move to the desert. He didn't get it because Gary didn't have any money.

And I love how people keep saying Tex was in charge. Tex had NOTHING to do with Gary's murder.

Lynn said...

Congrats to the new staff writers. Re: Johnny Echols and Bobby B....someone had asked for Bobby's contact info. This is the last e-mail address I have: Not sure he will address it.

This is probably old news but somebody had posted this on another forum for something different, but found the Manson pictures fascinating as I revisited it:

Lastly, congrats to St. C on his broadcast. Did not get a chance to catch it...hopefully I will be able to access it.
