Charlie Manson – A Legend In His Own Mind Through It All

manson1Charles Manson took 150 hours of a Scientology Course. He walked away stating it was  “too crazy” for him!

Charlie Manson moved the ‘family’ onto the Spahn Ranch then proceeded to ban books, wristwatches, calendars and clocks. He also banned them from wearing glasses, making them believe their vision was ‘their natural way to see the world around them.’

Charles Manson was a big fan of The Beatles and the “family” was openly shocked that The Beatles hadn’t been in contact once Manson’s arrest had gone public.

The-BeatlesCharles Manson was an aspiring pop star who had many of his songs recorded by famous musicians, including the Beach Boys, Guns & Roses, Marilyn Manson and Redd Kross. His biggest success, although he was never credited for it, was a song Dennis Wilson from the Beach Boys reworked, called “Cease to Exist.” That pissed Charlie off!

manson_guruSusan Atkins, of the Manson “family”, admitted to the murder of Sharon Tate. She also stated that Charlie and the women planned on killing more famous celebrities, including Tom Jones, Elizabeth Taylor, Frank Sinatra, Steve McQueen and Richard Burton. They wanted to kill high profile celebrities so the world would take notice of them.

Charles Manson receives up to 60,000 letters per year. More than any other prisoners in history!
