boy, am I sick. I feel so horrid...
direct tv just called and woke me up. thank GOD I didn't answer the phone. they always ask for daddy anyway.
I decided to do some research on john phillips. in doing this, I have found out a couple of interesting things that have nothing whatsoever to do with him that I may post about.
but, here is an interesting little story that is about him. back in the day (66 or 67, I think) the mamas and the papas were at a party thrown by dunhill (they were on the dunhill label owned by the dunhill company that makes "luxury cigarettes" ... it's owned by r.j. reynolds, btw) in england. now, i'm imagining that all sorts of celebs of the day are there. or at least mick jagger is there.
so, anyway, john phillips sees cass elliot talking to mick jagger. so, he comes over (as in, it sounds like, crosses the room making directly for them) and makes some remark to/about her that causes her not only to run from the room, but to try to quit the band (contractual obligations brought her back for the next album). I don't know wtf he said (yet, bwahaha), but damn. and there's mick jagger again.
