Afflicted with schizophrenia but the judge who sentenced him still found him responsible for the crime. Tragic all round.

He played on two songs on Pet Sounds too: he was the drummer on I'm Waiting for the Day and a percussionist on God Only Knows.

Not the first murderer with a Beach Boys connection.

He played on some incredible albums - mad dogs and Englishmen, Layla and other assorted love songs, played with Zappa, the Byrds, Delaney and Bonnie (and friends), Donovan, Dr John, and so many more.

Incredible career

In the mid 90’s I was recruiting and I got a cv from a guy who had been in prison.

He’d been in since 1969. And his experience on his CV was that he’d been a road manager for bands.

I can only imagine he was in for murder because of the length of incarceration.

(I was vetoed from inviting him in for an interview.)

This story reminded me of that.

I only know of him because MOD (Method Of Destruction) wrote a song about him on their first album U.S.A. for M.O.D.

Never heard of him yet his discography is unreal. I guess that's the life of a studio/session musician.
