MY FAVORITE ROCK & ROLL CULT, THE SOURCE FAMILY!

The Source Family were a spiritual, meditation based hippie cult and rock band from the early seventies out of L.A. Run by Father Yod, the long, white haired, bearded former marine and speed addict, who decided to put down the black beauties and booze at age 43, to follow a healthier life of yoga, raw foods and of coarse... marijuana. He was against drugs and alcohol, yet saw pot as a ceremonial herb that aided his deep, spiritual practices. The love of a 19-year-old Parisian girl fueled his ambition of health as he healed her sick body just by changing her diet. They eventually married and were to become the father and mother of their followers.

MOVE OVER AXL, HERE COMES ROB CARLYLE & THE COMPULSIONS!

While Guns N' Roses front man Axl Rose demands that Google take down his chubby pics, Rob Carlyle & the Compulsions have the edginess that Rose once possessed. The New York City based band has been favorably compared to Aerosmith, the Faces and the Rolling Stones, and has featured guitarist Richard Fortus and drummer Frank Ferrer who are both, ironically, also in Guns N' Roses.
