Hi Tonyl1,
Thanks for the article. I've read John Phillips' autobiography several times, and while I enjoyed it, I get the sense that there were some exagerations.
Take care, Nicole :mrgreen:

From the article:
The career of the Mamas and Papas waned around 1968 and the songwriting of Phillips with all its idyllic lifestyle references changed. His lyrics became more cynical - this was after all the end of the 60's dream,


I am always amused by some folk's false impression that The Mamas & The Papas songs were all sweetness and sunshine. It makes me wonder if they ever really listened to the lyrics. Very few of their songs are of a positive nature.

Sandy I couldn't agree more with ya, still always neat to read what we can get lol
(btw I just listened to this Wolfking Of LA album tonight, for the first time)
was totally blown away how different John is on it, he looks pretty
crazed on the rear photo of album cover though , but I still highly regard this man
John Phillips was pure musical genius/writer /vocal arranger , of such high caliber.
I have no one in my list that is higher,
