Beach Boys’ Love talks about Manson


Beach Boys singer Mike Love has detailed the band’s brief relationship with cult leader Charles Manson in the late 1960s in a new memoir.

People magazine reports that Love writes that Manson and his followers moved in with bandmate Dennis Wilson in 1968, a little more than a year before Manson’s cult killed seven people, including actress Sharon Tate.

Love recalls being at the house with another Beach Boy, Bruce Johnston, when Manson handed out LSD and was “orchestrating sex partners” for some of his female followers.

Love says he tried to bow out of the situation and went to take a shower, but was confronted by Manson, who Love says told him, “you can’t leave the group.”

Love’s memoir, “Good Vibrations,” is set for release later this month.

Rep. Lewis crowd surfs on ‘Colbert’


NEW YORK — Civil rights leader and U.S. Rep. John Lewis may be 76, but he’s not too old to crowd surf.

The Georgia Democrat wrapped up an interview on Wednesday’s “Late Show with Stephen Colbert” by wading into a sea of audience members who lifted him up and passed him around.

Lewis was part of a crowd surfing epidemic on the show. He was the third guest of the night to crowd surf with Colbert, following actors Christian Slater and Chris Geere.

Lewis was on the program to promote his graphic novel series, “March,” which retells of the civil rights movement from Lewis’s perspective.
