Laurel Canyon in the 1960s and early 1970s was a magical place where a dizzying array of musical artists congregated to create much of the music that provided the soundtrack to those turbulent times Members of bands like the Byrds Buffalo Springfield the Monkees the Beach Boys the Mamas and the Papas the Turtles the Eagles the Flying Burrito Brothers Frank Zappa and the Mothers of Invention Steppenwolf Captain Beefheart CSN Three Dog Night Alice Cooper the Doors and Love with Arthur Lee along with such singer songwriters as Joni Mitchell Judy Collins James Taylor Carole King Jackson Browne Judi Sill and David Blue lived together and jammed together in the bucolic community nestled in the Hollywood Hills But there was a dark side to that scene as well Many didn t make it out alive and many of those deaths remain shrouded in mystery to this day Far more integrated into the scene than most would care to admit was a guy by the name of Charles Manson along with his murderous entourage Also floating about the periphery were various political operatives up and coming politicians and intelligence personnel the same sort of people who just happened to give birth to many of the rock stars populating the canyon And all of the canyon s colorful characters rock stars hippies murderers and politicos happily coexisted alongside a covert military installation Weird Scenes Inside the Canyon is the very strange but nevertheless true story of the dark underbelly of a hippie utopia
