Charles Manson - Lie

Born to an unmarried 16-year-old named Kathleen Maddox in Cincinnati General Hospital in 1934, Manson was first dubbed "no name Maddox". For a period after his birth, his mother was married to a laborer named William Manson, whose last name the boy was given. Manson's death sentence (for the Tate/LaBianca murders) was automatically commuted to life imprisonment when a 1972 decision by the Supreme Court of California temporarily eliminated the state's death penalty.California's eventual reinstatement of capital punishment did not affect Manson, who is currently incarcerated at Corcoran State Prison.

Jim Carroll - Catholic Boy

In memory of Gary Moore ,Thin Lizzy guitarist who died of a heart attack this weekend

Special thanks to Lagrimapsicodelica for keeping folks around the world turned on to Lizzy.

Thin Lizzy are an Irish hard rock band who formed in Dublin, Ireland, in 1969. The two founding members, drummer Brian Downey and bass guitarist/vocalist Phil Lynott met each other while still in school. Lynott, with an engaging and charismatic personality, took up the role of frontman and speaker for the band and led them throughout their recording career of thirteen studio albums. Thin Lizzy are best known for their songs "Whiskey in the Jar", "Jailbreak" and "The Boys Are Back in Town", all major international hits still played regularly on hard rock and classic rock radio stations. After Lynott died, various incarnations of the band have emerged over the years culminating in the most stable line-up based around guitarists Scott Gorham and John Sykes, however Sykes left the band in June 2009.
