Henry Rollins Reveals He Produced an Album For Killer Charles Manson

At a benefit event he recently hosted for Los Angeles radio station KCRW, former Black Flag frontman Henry Rollins revealed that he produced an album for serial murderer and cult leader Charles Manson, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

Rollins produced a handful of Charles Manson's acoustic "pop songs" at some point during Manson's life sentence in prison.

Only five pressings of the album, entitled Completion, were made before SST Records employees started receiving death threats.

Henry Rollins played some of the songs from Completion as well as some his other rarities and "top-shelf gear" to the crowd at the "Rare Cuts and Conversations" benefit event at the Echoplex.
