LOVE (The Band) "¡Que Vida!" IP: 188.8.131.52 Posted on October 8, 2017 at 06:54:48 PM by Jim Hollis
Does anyone remember the Los Angeles, CA band called LOVE? Not terribly popular in the States, but they made some unique and ginny tunes in their time. LOVE was led by Arthur Lee. Ironically for a short time, one of their guitarists was none other than Bobby Beausoleil, an associate of the Manson Family who was given a life in prison sentence for the stabbing and killing of music instructor Gary Hinman, just before the events of "Helter Skelter" took place on August 9, 1968. Check out this quirky little tune and its somewhat haunting and creepy lyrics. Catchy... cannot get the chord arrangement out of my head, nor the melody. Oh, and for you guitar buffs, that electric guitar in the pic is a Gibson Barney Kessell model.
