CULT ROCK (Part 4): Charles Manson The Rock Star

It was midnight and Phil Kaufman was waiting. He’d been tipped off that the Manson crew had been crawling through his lawn at night when he was out of town. Sure enough when midnight struck he watched as several Manson followers did their infamous “creepy crawl” through his yard.

He waited patiently and when the first person stepped foot on his porch he yelled, “Stick ‘em up!” and they put their hands up.

“What the fuck are you doing?” Kaufman yelled out.

“Charlie sent us to get the music back,” one of the girls said.

Kaufman put a shotgun to the mans head and said, “Now you get the hell out of here and don’t you ever come back.”

After a tense standoff the group started to walk away but then he yelled, “Get out the way you came! Crawl out!” As they slithered away his buddy fired a shot at them. “You’ve never seen people wriggle along so fast,” Kaufman said.

Manson’s disciples came back still again. This time they surrounded the house and chanted, “Give us the music.”
