Manson was once a part of Dennis's life. Landy was once a part of Brian's life. While a majority of fans don't like it this is how it was. The former is in jail. The latter is dead. Both men were wrong. I am sure that whomever bought Landy back in is kicking himself now. It would be natural for Alexndra to say that she and Eugene were victims. Each side wants to be the vicitm. Yet in the end Brian was the victm of Landy and Dennis was the victim of Manson. I know that Manson would say he was the victm of Dennis. It is amazing what people will say when they have lost the cases. Dennis is dead. Brian is still with us and has an ablum coming out on Tuesday, April 7. I am looking forward to enjyoing that. Yes, Carl did put others first. I am sure he received some spanknigs from Murry. Both men are dead. Did any of you notice in the Diane Sawyer interview that at one point Landy compated himself to Brian? What a crock!!! Landy had illusions of a very posh and grand life for himself. When he took over Brian's life he lived in Brian's house while Brian lived in a house very much like the ones we live in. While Landy had the babt grand piano Brian had and upright piano. The latter is the type you see in every Chorus room in school. If any of you are looking for the best description of the Landy years read Catch A Wave by Peter Ames Carlin.
Gads, I'm going to sound like I'm defending Landy - one of the last people I'm inclined to ever defend. Brian told me he preferred his upright to a baby grand for composing as the soundboard faced him as he played. Why Brian didn't have both pianos for obvious reasons would be the bigger question.
