The wonderful world of rock ‘n’ roll has given us many things over the years — not just some killer songs. We’ve seen scandal upon scandal erupt, turning musicians into entertainment figures.

Charles Manson Wrote For The Beach Boys

Infamous cult leader Charles Manson might be the last person you’d associate with the fun-loving, all American surf band The Beach Boys, but at one point they were close. After Manson was released from his second stint in prison in 1967, he tried to make it in the music business.
