Summary Weird Scenes Inside the Canyon Free download ´ E-book, or Kindle E-pub æ David McGowan David McGowan æ 9 Free read Laurel Canyon in the 1960s and early 1970s was a magical place where a dizzying array of musical artists congregated to create much of the music that provided the soundtrack to those turbulent times Members of bands like the Byrds the Doors Buffalo Springfield the Monkees the Beach Boys the Turtles the Eagles the Flying Burrito Brothers Frank Zappa and the Mothers of Invention Steppenwolf CSN Three Dog Night and Love along with other singerson. As strange as this book reads the surface details are all true But what is overall message Though it goes through many strange twists and turns to get there as far as I can tell it is that the musicians who congregated in Laurel Canyon did so for reasons that did not really have anything to do with music Instead they tended to come from extremely privileged backgrounds and parents who were high ranking military officials who were also likely involved in espionage people like Stephen Stills and Peter Tork who happened to find themselves in Latin American countries at a time just before democratically elected leaders were toppled by the CIA and Stills was in Vietnam before the war there escalatedThe author seems to be suggesting that the wild lifestyles promoted by these artists many of whom did not actually play on their records was an attempt by the CIA to exert mind control over young people in an effort to divert them away from serious anti war efforts David Crosby descended from original Dutch Settlers to New York as well as John Jay and Alexander Hamilton Peter Fonda whose family came over with Crosby s Van Rensselear ancestors on the same boat and Jim Morrison son of a high ranking Naval officer who displayed no interest in music until he became a rock star also exemplify this theoryAnd yes a large number of these people died or were murdered in mysterious circumstances or the houses where these happenings took place burned down I might not have trouble believing they were assassinated by our government if there had been proof the author suggests that they may have known too much and their deaths made to look like suicide or murdersuicide If true it would be easy to see why nobody would want to talk about this stuff Therefore all we have are a series of documented facts that point to a pattern of sinister influence in Laurel Canyon There was no shortage of macabre and disreputable people around including Vito and the Freaks Charles Manson The Process an EST like cult and a whole host of Crowley esue disciples What is less well known is that Dick Cheney Paul Wolfowitz and Donald Rumsfeld were in residence at a RAND corporation think tank located on a secluded hillside in the midst of all this and supposedly J Edgar Hoover was a customer at a gay brothel located nearbyThere is also much made of certain dates which have occult significance like the fact that Tom Mix died on October 12 Alistair Crowley s Birthday Mix had once owned the Log Cabin future home of Frank Zappa and Spahn Ranch where the Manson Family lived The Log Cabin burned down on Halloween 1981 This was 22 years to the day after Houdini s estate located nearby burned down Houdini himself also died on Halloween in 1926 Spooky Parts of it also read like a giant game of Six Degrees of Separation For instance how to connect comedian Phil Hartman and Charles Manson WellHartman designed the CSNY Logo and was the brother of John Hartman a label exec with David Geffen John Hartman got his start in the music business with Colonel Tom Parker Tom Parker worked with Tom Mix in the 1940s In addition to the aforementioned Spahn Ranch connection Phil Hartman also attended high school with Sueaky FrommeSo what does all this prove Well nothing really But if true all these coincidences are strange Then again we are talking about California where there are freuent wild fires and houses burn down all the time There are other perfectly plausible explanations as to why all these people would end up in the entertainment capital of the United States and why those living in the fast lane tend to turn up dead a lotI don t know whether to give this book 1 star for lack of proof that would really tie all this stuff together or 5 stars After all this was one hell of a page turner to paraphrase Austin Powers conspiracy theories ARE my bag There are obviously a lot of things left out of this review but off the top of my head I wondered why Danny Sugarman who who lived on Wonderland Avenue and later married Fawn Hall who was Oliver North s secretary and Rodney Bingenheimer who knew everyone mentioned in this book were left out of this sagaI am definitely adding it to my Classic Trash shelf along with my Brian Jones conspiracy books and Hollywood BabylonJuly 18 2020 I am updating my review from five years ago to recommend a book I recently read by Tom O Niell called Chaos Charles Manson the CIA and the Secret History of the Sixties published June 25 2019 It covers some of the same ground However O Niell provides documented proof of his assertions He was not able to tie all of it together but where there is smoke there is fire It certainly makes a lot of the unsubstantiated claims in Weird Scenes seem a little plausible

A popular revisionist work implying that the Laurel Canyon Los Angeles music scene of the late 1960 s was engineered by the CIA to divert rebellious youth from the anti war cause I found much of it unconvincing however there are two points in the author s favour1 The sheer amount of musicians in the Laurel Canyon scene whose parents worked in military intelligence Jim Morrison s father was literally the commander behind the Gulf of Tonkin incident that was the casus belli for America s entry into Vietnam and in fact most of these LA musicians were actually from northern Virginia home of the Pentagon CIA etc2 The uncanny lightning fast speed with which the LA scene starting with manufactured group The Byrds were promoted by the corporate mediaOutside these points however everything is very murky and nebulous and as the book lacks footnotes it s hard to check McGowan s sourcesAlso he seems to labouring under the misapprehension that hippies were all Gandhi style pacifists and that when a musician owned or enjoyed guns there s some sinister double standard at work meaning they re not who they say they are In reality the pacifism of the hippies is itself a media fictionmany genuine hippies believed in violence in self defence My novel Greybeard concerns an elderly hippy who goes on a killing rampage in Germany when his grandson is murdered by Merkel s migrant hordes which isn t exactly a far fetched scenario Much of McGowan s writing reads like some kind of dark gossip column whereby he delights in showing what degenerates most of these people wereAdmittedly most of the music is forgettable With the exception of Californa Dreaming Love s Forever Changes and ironically Charles Manson it s dreary stuff Only the most slovenly beer gutted boomer crying demented tears of nostalgia over the memory of his first joint could possibly find pleasure in the likes of Frank Zappa or Crosby Stills and NashIf the scene really was engineered by the CIA they could have picked better songwriters lol NB McGowan s essay Wagging the Moondoggie is better reasoned and structured than this rather rambling book
