It's all hindsight, of course, but I think we can now say with some certainty that The Mommas and The Pappas were the sleaziest pop group of their time. Keith Richards, Led Zep? Not in the hunt. The Velvet Underground? Art school dandies. Alice Cooper was always a pose, a minister's son out to shock. I can't think of anything that beats a decade's long incestuous relationship, complicity in that relationship, and death by ham sandwich. Denny Doherty had an affair with Michelle Phillips, but that's nothing-- he was just trying to fit in. (I used to own a copy of "Dave Mason & Cass Elliot", but I don't know what happened to it. That won't be getting the box set reissue treatment anytime soon.)
