Charles Manson has died

Charles Manson has died
Cult Leader Charles Manson has died, aged 83. When already a criminal he invented himself as a messianic figure and attracted a cult he called the Family, who he indoctrinated and sent out to kill, costing the deaths of seven people. That happened in 1969, and Manson has been seen as the dark side of the hippy summer of love ever since.
So what’s he doing on a music and movies site? Manson cast a large pall over music, from using the Beatles White Album in his own schemes to inspiring acts like Nine Inch Nails and most obviously Marilyn Manson, who took the man’s name.
Manson’s twisted dream was to start a race war. As he dies, a President seems to be wanting much of the same.
