Lol. Damn right. Even at his age he knows the cultural appropriation of an animalistic display to encite breeding is unacceptable for white girls. Good job, son.

It's a fake. Propaganda to discredit him and paint anyone not on the reservation as violent and stupid.

Last Kiss -- J Frank Wilson and the Cavaliers submitted by ex-redd to PaddysPub

"Last Kiss" was written and released by Wayne Cochran in 1961 on the Gala label. It failed to do well on the charts. Cochran subsequently re-recorded his song for the King label in 1963. It was later revived by J. Frank Wilson and the Cavaliers.

This song is about Jeanette Clark and J.L. Hancock, who were both 16 years old when their car hit a tractor-trailer on a road in rural Barnesville, Georgia. They were on a date a few days before Christmas in 1962. A local gas station attendant helping with the recovery of the bodies did not recognize his own daughter. Hancock and Clark's friend Wayne Cooper, who was riding with them, was killed instantly. Their two other friends, Jewel Emerson and Ed Shockley, survived with serious injuries. Wayne Cochran's drummer had been dating Jeannette Clark's sister at the time of the wreck. This was written by Wayne Cochran, who lived on Route 1941 in Georgia, which was about 15 miles away from the crash. It was a busy road, and Cochran saw lots of accidents on it. He was working on a song based on all the crashes he saw, and was about halfway done with it when he heard about the wreck in Barnesville. There was an intense emotional response from the community after the tragedy, and Cochran used those feelings to finish the song, which he dedicated it to Jeanette Clark.

The band's producer, Son Roush, subsequently split the group to place lead singer J. Frank Wilson with better musicians. Four months after the release of this song, the new band were touring in Ohio. At about 5:15 a.m., Roush apparently fell asleep at the wheel. The car drifted left of center and rammed head-on into a trailer truck. Roush was killed instantly. Wilson survived with a few broken ribs and a broken ankle, but went right on with the tour, taking only a week off. People still remember him coming out on the stage on crutches to sing "Last Kiss" and "Hey, Little One." The second accident is what pushed this song to #2 on the national charts.

Did (((they))) depopularize rock music because it featured mostly white males? submitted by The_Venerable to whatever

While McGowan and others do have a few verifiable facts that may deserve attention, much of that "research" is unsupported conjecture and assumptions. I'm not saying it's not interesting and worth looking into, you have to be as careful with it as many are today about, say, political stories. It's been well over 50 years and history becomes more obscure the further you get from sources. Even then, Laurel Canyon played only a small part of the music landscape of the time.
