  1. Great book by our bossman, Bill. You can learn more about rock and roll hanging out in his office or
    checking out his posts to the BU journalism Facebook page. A lot of who knews?
    Highly recommend.

  2. Really interesting stuff – I just finished Mike Love’s book “Good Vibrations – My Life as a Beach Boy”. He also speaks about the interactions with the Manson family – Dennis was def in over his head. Can’t wait to read McKeen’s book.

  3. In the midst of timeless music being made, it was also 48 years ago today (and tomorrow) that Manson orchestrated the Tate-LaBianca murders. A dark but fascinating period and not one for the faint of heart – Congrats to Bill for taking it on.
