DESTINY 1969 Elvis Presley and Charles Manson TRUE STORY
Written by Jeff Schrembs — ALL RIGHTS RESERVED
1969 was a `history making` year in America and remains as a definitive year ending the 1960`s. In spite of the `feel good 1960`s` there was also hate, riots, and even`murder.
In 1969 California was as the `Land of Milk and Honey`, the `Golden Coast`, `the place of the never ending sun and surf`, and the Land of Hollywood. In August of 1969 it would be known as the `Land of Murder`. Specifically California in 1969 would show that no one was safe, that innocent people could be randomly butchered in their own homes, and that steel gates and locks were no match for the intentions of a man committed to bringing death to those inside. The `mastermind` behind the murders had a name`Charles Manson.
The summer of 1969 in California was a Mecca bringing together many musical, cultural, and spiritual activities. Drug use was commonplace. Sexual liberation was exploding. Amercia was engaged in the Vietnam War and the site of young Americans dying and returning in `body bags` was a daily occurrence. Civil Rights for minorities were long overdue and Politicians were reacting to decades of injustice. Peace, love, and War were part of the Hippie culture vernacular and `mocking authority` was`in full swing. America was changing and those changes were being propelled by musicians who sang about life, sang about change, sang about love, and sang about death. No where in America was `hotter`, in the current musical scene, than in California in 1969.
Hollywood (California) held endless promises of possibilities, wealth, power, success, and connections. However, many people had come to California (by bus, train, plane, and by hitchhiking) only to discover that life could (in fact) be `hard` in Hollywood. Those deemed `undesirables` in Hollywood had to, some with the aid of the `drugs of their choice`, resign themselves to simply being in `real world no glamour jobs` as doormen, waiters, etc. Yet many still `chased the dream` always hoping for the `one break` that would free them from their societal chains allowing the World to behold their talents and have their named put in the middle of a `Star` in Hollywood confirming that they had`made it.
An `unspoken truth` was that there were `two sides` to life in California and/or `two sides` of the same coin. In Hollywood there were also `two sides`. One side was flush with success, money, power, fashion, travel, health, and the best that life offered. The other side lived `hand to mouth` in full view of those who made `made it`. In California in 1969 one influential Rocker returned to the stage after years of being sidelined by contractual obligations to star in movies. Just a year earlier, without warning, the `leather clad` Greek God had reclaimed his by appearing in a `TV Special`. This musically gifted, icon, was named`Elvis Aron Presley.
To even put the names `Charles Manson` and `Elvis Presley` into the same `story` is both shocking and`intriguing. In human history one would be hard pressed to find two people who were more`polar opposites. In spite of their `notoriety` never before has the true story been told, in its entirety, about what really occurred in 1969 as it related to `Charles Manson` and `Elvis Presley`. Two sides of the same coin? No. However, fate has a way of bringing together individuals who (one their own) would never have interacted. Thus was the case here as these men would meet and lives would forever be changed including their own.
In summary, in California 1969 Charles Manson was found on the property of Elvis Presley. How he got there, why he got there, and his intent for being there remains`speculative. The fact is that Charles Manson was there, without invitation, and before his name, face, and his actions would repulse a Nation.
When discovered on Elvis` property Manson was said to have called out the names of people `well known` in `Hollywood`s musical scene`. He also, in between rants of profanity, began to assert that he was a singer/musician himself. At some point he affirmed that he was, and had, `lived there before` (i.e. in the home and on the property). As was customary, when fans or `others` were discovered on the property without notice/permission, the person(s) were (a) removed and (b) informed not to come back. Such was the case when Charles Manson was discovered on the property of Elvis Presley.
**NOTE: Charles Manson, in several non-specific interviews, told his version of events as follows: I lived in Elvis Presley`s house, man. He ran me out of the yard. I got mad at him, I was going to throw some rocks at him, cause I thought he was an idiot, an egotistical fucking punk. I never liked him even a little bit, but everybody else always kow-towed to him because he was rich and everything. But to me that don`t mean shit. I don`t give a fuck how rich you are, I`ll bust you up anyway.

2. This is just an incredible article.
I first read it last night and could not stop thinking about it.
I then checked, double checked, and checked again and everything the author said is 100% right.
How has this never been told before?
Jeff Schrembs deserves to be notified that this story is excellent and just incredible.
You know there are so many ads and things about Elvis but I also did some checking and rechecking about Jeff Schrembs and he is the real deal. He is the greatest Elvis Presley Expert and also owns the largest Elvis collection in the World. I am unclear as to if he is related to Elvis but it appears that all of his works are ad free and done just to share stories about Elvis to other people. It is rare that you see a stand up man focusing on Elvis without ads and clicks and special buy it now deals all over the place.
Thank you Jeff Schrembs for teaching this ole Southern Doctor a few new tricks about Elvis.
I hope that you keep doing what you are doing and that your quality of works turns into success for boy you are talented.
I still can`t stop thinking about this story and I have to be up in the early am to see Patients.
Elvis and Manson. Elvis and Manson.
In all seriousness Mr. Schrembs thank you for sharing your passion and doing so in a way that clearly shows that you are a quality man with extraordinary knowledge and writing skills. You tell a great story and I still can`t get over that it is true but it is and I have spent about 11 hours confirming such.
If WORDPRESS doesn`t do FEATURES for you then there are going to miss out becuase you should be `front and center` on WordPress.
Thanks to all.

3.I HAVE KNOW JEFF SINCE THE LATE 1970S.
JEFF IS A HANDSOME, SMART, FUNNY, SOUTHERN GENTLEMAN WHO WOULD GIVE YOU THE SHIRT OFF HIS BACK AND DEFEND THE HELPLESS WITH HIS LIFE.
JEFF WAS BUILT LIKE A FIGHTER BUT REMINDED US ALL OF A YOUNG ELVIS. HIS HUMOR, TEMPER, THE WAY HE TALKED, THE WAY HE LOOKED AT YOU AND THE WAY HE ENTERED A ROOM YOU KNEW HE WAS THERE AND EVERY WOMAN WANTED TO BE NEAR HIM.
I HAVE TRIED TO KEEP AWAY FROM MOST ELVIS STUFF BECAUSE IT IS NOT HIGH QUALITY AND ALOT OF PEOPLE ARE SLEEZY AND JUST TRY TO MAKE MONEY OFF ELVIS. JEFF WAS NEVER THAT WAY AND I SAW HIM GET COLONEL PARKER TO AGREE TO SEVERAL THINGS AND THEN COLONEL PARKER FIGURED OUT THAT THE NAPKINS EVERYTHING WAS WRITTEN ON HAD NOTES SAYING `PARKER WILL NOT GIVE THIS SO DO THIS`. JEFF KNEW WHAT PARKER WOULD DO BEFORE HE DID SO. IT WAS SO FUNNY. COLONEL TOLD HIM HE WAS AN HONARY MEMBER OF THE SNOWMANS LEAGUE. JEFF AND COLONEL AND JEFF AND ELVIS HAD A GREAT RELATIONSHIP. I WAS SAD TO HAVE LAST SAW JEFF IN THE LATE 1980′S.
WHEN I WAS TOLD ABOUT THIS ARTICLE I HAD TO CHECK IT OUT MYSELF AND SEE IF IT WAS THE SAME JEFF. IT IS SO I HOPE THAT JEFF SEES THIS AND GETS IN TOUCH WITH ME ASAP.
JEFF SCHREMBS HAS BEEN AN ASSET TO ELVIS PRESLEY AND ELVIS` FAMILY AND FRIENDS AND COWORKERS AND IS ABOUT THE MOST LOYAL MAN I HAVE EVER KNOWN.
THIS ARTICLE IS TRUE AND ONLY JEFF COULD GET TO THE STORY AFTER DECADES OF `REPORTERS` MISSED IT.
KNOWING JEFF HE HAS MANY MORE STORIES BUT HE WOULD NEVER BETRAY ELVIS CAUSE HE LOVED HIM. HE WAS A YOUNG MAN WHEN ELVIS DIED AND SEVERAL TIMES ELVIS SAID THAT IF HE EVER HAD A SON HE WOULD WANT HIM TO BE LIKE JEFF AND CARRY HIMSELF THAT A WAY.
BLESS YOU ALL.
