She's fine, but when Lady Gaga was dancing with a fan, she fell backwards off the stage. It was during the part of her show that is a tribute to the Miami Dolphins.

Since you asked:

Right up front I am telling you this is going to sound like some serious conspiracy theory BS, but this is all true.

Terry Melcher was a producer of both The Byrds and The Beach Boys. He was also Doris Day’s son. Charlie Manson told anyone who would listen he was paid to have sex with Doris Day, so Terry bribed Manson with a brand new Jaguar to get him to stop gossiping about the alleged affair with his mother. Manson was a lot of bad things, but a liar was not one of them.

(Melcher was not the only one to give Manson a fancy vehicle. Neil Young gave Manson an Indian Motorcycle in payment for all the sex and drugs he got at the Spahn Ranch)

Graham Parsons taught Terry Melcher about the power of good country music - which Melcher applied to The Byrds and The Beach Boys. Graham Parson’s manager was Phil Kaufman. Guess who Phil Kaufman taught to play guitar when they were in prison? Charlie Manson. 

And for those who forgot, Terry Melcher was living with his girlfriend, Candice Bergen, at his house at 10050 Cielo Drive. Manson would repeatedly come by unannounced to demand more money for a song of his The Beach Boys recorded called “Cease To Exist” which Dennis Wilson changed to “Never Learn Not to Love” and wrongly took the credit for writing it. Melcher got spooked by Manson’s threats and moved out and rented the house to Roman Polanski and Sharon Tate. 

According to my math, this would still only make Charles Manson the fifth biggest asshole in the L.A. music scene behind Irving Azoff, David Geffen, David Crosby and Stephen Stills.

P.S. Guess which actor was on the visitors list to Charles Manson at  San Quentin? Dennis Hopper who modeled his "Easy Rider" character after David Crosby.

2012 OFFICIAL Americana Awards "The Weight"

At this point we need to tell the NFL referees to pull a George Costanza and just call the opposite of what they were going to call.

The Los Angeles Chargers lost to the Pittsburgh Steelers 24-17. But it was awfully thoughtful how the Chargers scored one point for each one of their fans in attendance at home.

There is a brand new fun NFL game. It is called “Find the Chargers fan at the Chargers’ game.”

The Los Angeles Chargers have less fans in the stands than the IRS softball team.

The vast majority of the crowd at the Los Angeles Chargers game were Steelers fans. Pretty soon it will be harder to find a Charger fan than a Bill Cosby fan.

The Chicago Bears had a bye this week. And yet Khalil Mack was somehow still able to record three sacks.
