the more you know, this is the background to who manson really wanted to kill....great story...
Dennis Wilson, of the Beach Boys, was driving through Malibu when he noticed two female hitchhikers. He picked them up and dropped them off where they wanted go. Later on, Dennis noticed the same two girls hitchhiking again. He took them to his home, and then went to a recording session. When he returned at around three o'clock in the morning, he was met in his driveway Charles Manson. When he walked into his home, there were about a dozen there, mostly females. Before long, Dennis became fascinated with Manson, his followers, and the "Family." They lived with him for a short time.
Dennis was very impressed by Manson's talent, and soon he introduced him to a few friends in the music business, including Terry Melcher, Doris Day's son. During that time, Manson would visit Melcher at 10050 Cielo Drive, the home Melcher shared with his girlfriend, Candice Bergen. Manson eventually auditioned for Melcher, but Melcher declined to sign him. There was still talk of a documentary being made about Manson's music, but Melcher abandoned the project after witnessing Manson in a terrifying fight with a drunken stuntman at Spahn Ranch.
Dennis noticed Manson's volatile nature and growing tendency to violence and the friendship by moving out of the house. Manson was not happy that Dennis had moved out. After finding out were Dennis had moved to, Manson left a bullet with Dennis' housekeeper to be delivered with a cryptic message. For years Dennis did not speak a word about Mason or his Family.
Terry Melcher moved from his home and the house's owner, Rudi Altobelli, leased it to film director Roman Polanski and his wife, actress Sharon Tate. I think you know the rest of the story.
