Below is an excerpt from a discussion group I have since quit. I assume that the person who left the comment about the Charles Manson site, and the fact that my name was mentioned, is after the same kind of garbage that this little prick was when he asked his questions and made his remarks below.

Rev-Ola Records used Diane's death, and my connection to her, in their release of the Chris Lucey cd "Songs Of Protest And Anti Protest." The author of that questionable strategy is Steve Stanley. I asked Steve, Rev-Ola, and ACE Records to retract the remarks in Rev-Ola's release of my album over 5 years ago.

To this day Joe Foster and Rev-Ola have not offered any clarification regarding the remarks written and printed in their release about Diane Linkletter, and my relationship to her, even though the true facts are available. To use this kind of shit to sell cd's is bad enough, adding it to the fact that I have been paid nothing by them, makes it all that much worse. It is hard for me, even as cynic, to grasp the coldness of Rev-Ola's choice to use this garbage to sell some records.

  1. Below is an excerpt from a discussion group I have since quit. I assume that the person who left the comment about the Charles Manson site and my name being mentioned is after the same kind of garbage as this little prick was when he asked his questions and made his remarks below.

    I'm sorry you think that. I found the Charles Manson sight by looking up Diane Linkletters name along with her friend as they are not names I'm familiar with and am looking to understand better your story which is where I found the names to start with.

    Why are you sorry? I am not against anyone putting anything here, but I do have an opinion and reactions to what is put here. I have no protection at all and that is fine, but to act as though your feelings have been hurt by my opinion regarding what you wrote here is a little much. If you're going to bring up Charles Manson's name and mine in the same sentence maybe you ought to expect some sort of reaction from me. If I am wrong about your intentions I am sorry, but it was an easy leap for me to make considering the subject matter.

  3. It's so easy for nameless keyboard warriors to toss lying and ignorant cyberbombs. But as you point out, this archive will stand and anyone who reads it will know what really happened. The rest don't matter anyway. Bobby, by doing all of this, you've already won!

  4. Hollywood stories are great... the good the bad and the ugly... even the true stories become the fabric that legends are made of and when you lived there and watched the film unfold... you knew that the movie was yours too. I have chronicled much of this myself in a column called "Mystical Journey" and some of what is being discussed here can also find it reflected in my somewhat metaphysical realization and how there are no accidents but sometimes the synchronicity takes years to really understand. Bobby, I don't know if you know him but he contacted me as this newspaper column was unfolding, and his name is Scott Thomas Lowe and his group: Atascadero from the 60's. I used his correspondence to describe the Riot On Sunset Strip. The Table of Contents can be found on this page http://www.qm21.com/blackboard.html ~ Derek Lamar
