part of my story... | WHAT REALLY HAPPENED


part of my story...

Seasons Greetings .. I'm not very religious.. but very spiritual.. I love my country but hate foreign wars of conquest... I believe the American Constitution was inspired... by the Good Lord... The Declaration of independence.. was freedom from the Satanic European Banking System of fiat money with fractional reserves..

Believe it or not ... 1n 1967 or 8.. I received a doctor of Divinity from the founder of the Universal Life Church..himself.. We drove around Modesto California and bull-shitted about religion and philosophy for a couple of hours... I had read about the U.L.C. (I was in my guru days) and was convinced that it was close to what I believed.. Anyway the founder of the church suggested that since I was spiritually enlightened.. I didn't know anything at all.. So he gave me the idea of looking at the world with new eyes... I am constantly learning new things from the audiences I play.. I have been doing a musical ministry as a clown on and off for almost 50 years..

I had a career as a Hollywood Guru.. National Television twice.. I put on dozens of free concerts in L. A. (got the permits, lined up a P.A./System, got bands to play).. My final concert on Easter Sunday in 1970 had 30,000 people at Elesian park in Downtown L.A.

The cops came and eventually shut us down.. because there weren't enough portable toilets and there was poop everywhere.. They said...
So I became a clown.. and I picked a name that I figured nobody would want to be associated with.. Punky Clown.. I kept using that name until "The Sex Pistols" came along with Johnny Rotten and that bunch of English Junkies... People would say to me .."Oh.. You are just tryin' to leech onto the Punk Rock music scene of 1977.

Later in 1970..I got out of the Guru business.. Because Charles Manson screwed up the hippie movement bigtime.. and everybody looked at guru types like they were insane psycho murderers..

So I became a clown.. and I picked a name that I figured nobody would want to be associated with.. Punky Clown.. I kept using that name until "The Sex Pistols" came along with Johnny Rotton and that bunch of English Junkies... People would say to me .."Oh.. You are just tryin' to leech onto the Punk Rock music scene of 1977.

I was Punky Clown when the Charles Manson girls came into the picture.. .We.. Rita, Marikan (daughter) and me. were living by the beach in Venice.. one of our neighbors was the court illustrator for the Charles Manson Trial.. She had become good friends with the girls... and she made the crawl from downtown L.A. to the beach with the girls.. The girls were looking for a new Guru... I was first on the list

Ask the Manson Girls when they get out of prison.. if after the crawl they came to my house at the beach across the street from Mrs. Davis the court illustrator....Ask them.. if what I have written is true.. if I am a little too wordy.. please tell me.. It is to let anybody who cares.. know what I've been up to.. creative original writing can't be a bad thing anyway.
