On the Other Hand, Wrong Publicity is still Publicity

I do not believe this clown for a minute...

CHARLES MANSON's 'Son' To Release
NEW RISING SON Album - Oct. 27, 2011
California-based act NEW RISING SON has inked a deal with the French label Deadlight Entertainment. The group's new album, "Honey", will be released in January. A song from the CD, "Rain", is available for streaming in the YouTube clip below.

NEW RISING SON is the band of Matthew Roberts, who claims to be son of notorious killer Charles Manson.

Now 43 years old, Roberts — who bears a strong resemblance to Manson — says his biological mother, Terry, revealed that she had been raped by Manson in a drug-fueled orgy back in 1967.

After his birth, his young mother gave him up for adoption.

"I didn't want to believe it. I was frightened and angry. It's like finding out that Adolf Hitler is your father. I'm a peaceful person — trapped in the face of a monster," Roberts told The Sun newspaper.

Roberts says he has confirmed his mother's story through letters with Manson, The Sun reported.

"He sends me weird stuff and always signs it with his swastika. At first I was stunned and depressed. I wasn't able to speak for a day. I remember not being able to eat."

A year after Roberts' birth in 1968, Manson and his "family" of followers committed nine murders in Los Angeles over five weeks, including the stabbing of pregnant actress Sharon Tate. She was the wife of film director Roman Polanski.

yeah I guess that's one way to get some publicity for your really tragic neo-goth/NIN inspired band which totally sucks..seriously have any of you heard them?? trust me you really don't want to.

All we need is a DNA sample to sort out this nonsense.

I have looked at various photos of this man, and if you consider each individual feature such as shape of lips, eye shape, etc., there is not much of a likeness. Also, he is quite tall in stature, which makes me suspicious. Genetics can be tricky. He has, thus far, not wanted to confirm through DNA, I read.

Matt said...

toocrowded, both of my parents are small. My brother & I are both 6'3". Genetics can be tricky, as you say.

Marliese said...

Not really that tricky, Matt.

If your parents are small and both you and your brother are 6'3", there are tall people behind your genetic background. Like the saying goes 'it's in the genes.'

I agree with toocrowded. When you compare their features, this man doesn't look anything at all like Charlie.

And without dna testing...which there likely never will be between this man and Charlie, he has no credibility...regardless what his mother is telling him. It's people that are tricky, not genetics.

Matt said...

Marliese, I'm in agreement. My daughter's pinkies both angle in towards her ring fingers. After she was born I began looking at every relatives hands. No one else had the pinkies. Then later I came across an old photo of an ancestor in England. The photo was taken in the 1870's. There, plain as day were the pinkies!

These things can not just skip generations, but centuries.

What bothers me about this guy is that he is either reluctant or in no hurry to try to get a DNA test.

Marliese said...

Oh I like that story, Matt. And i admire your appreciation for the connection we have to those that came before us.

That had to be an incredible moment when you saw the photo...and how cool that an 1870's era photo was cared for and preserved so that you could see it...very nice.

as much as this guy seems to be disturbed by being manson's son, it appears he's afraid of not being manson's son as well. he must realize that being manson's son would open doors for him musically.

Marliese said...

i think it's all a gimmick. a scam. bs.

He's going to have to do better than 'my mother was raped by Charlie in a drug fueled orgy in 1967'...factual, provable details, dna testing etc.

so y'all have heard that he's on Star City Radio tonight, yes?

George Vreeland Hill said...

I will only believe the guy if he takes a DNA test and it matches him to Manson.
Until that time, he is just another musician trying or saying anything for attention.

There is no reason not to believe him. Manson had many children, many of whom are easily located.

Manson, himself, was a talented singer and songwriter. His CD, recorded on acetate before the Tate/LaBianca murders, is readily available. Stylistically, Manson is a lot like Johnny Rivers.

Producer Terry Melcher, contrary to Bugliosi's assertions, never wrote Manson off as an artist. The family spent the evening at Melcher & Candice Bergen's Malibu beach house on 8/7, two days before the murder. So much for their going to 10050 Cielo Dr. to kill Melcher. They knew where he was if they wanted him.

Everything we think we know about this case is false.
