I was reading the liner notes of Mike's album and he thanks Jeff Franklin for use of Jeff's property for shooting the album cover.

Now, I may be mistaken but is that not the same property where the Manson murders took place?

If, so it just strikes me as an odd choice. Yes, I realize that Jeff and Mike are friends, but seeing as there really is a direct link between the murders, and Michael's friend Terry, and Michael's cousin, Dennis, wouldn't one give pause to shooting there? Especially given the album is supposed to be thematic of more love in the world.

Again, just struck me as odd. I know a lot of people like to criticize Mike for every little thing, I just find it weird if indeed it's the same spot. The house is different, the address is different...but still.

Are you referring to Jeff Franklin, the creator of full house and fuller house?

If so, it is baffling that Mike and Bruce never made an appearance on the new series, which is about to reach its conclusion.

It is not beyond the realms of possibilites that he has owned multiple properties (e.g. he owned this one at one point as well https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/full-house-creator-lists-30m-741572)

But even if not, its a different house, with a different address and a lot of land around it (to quote Jeff,  "What I fell in love with here was the setting, the view, the privacy and the amount of flat land"). Unless Jeff also installed big signs everywhere saying "MANSON MURDERS HAPPENED HERE!" then I'm not sure how a non-aficionado is meant to know.

Mike and his associates have apparently done a number of events/parties/gigs at this property. Here's Scott Totten several years back briefly discussing it:

It's obviously up to one's own personal feeling/interpretation as to whether there's anything icky about doing events there, either in general or specifically when it comes to band members who, however involuntarily, were tied into the whole Manson saga in some fashion.

If their main connection to dropping in on the show comes via Franklin, then it's perhaps a factor that Franklin was ousted from the show last year amid some allegations:

Obviously Mike has an ongoing relationship with Stamos. I'm pretty sure Mike would kick his own kid off his tour if Stamos wanted to come on full time. So I would imagine Mike would be doing the show if Stamos had a way to do it and if scheduling allowed it.

I don't know how much the plot of the show would allow for it; I watched the first episode of the first season of the new show and was actually surprised how truly awful it was; making even the *original* run of the lightweight show seem far superior.
