At the time I didn’t know of the California band by the name of Motley Crue who had been performing a cover of the song which would be released in September of that year on the “Shout at the Devil” album.
We talked about the meaning of the song and I found out there was actually an amusement ride called “Helter Skelter” in England.
I had a collection of Beatles songs which included the song, but not the White album which had been released the year I was born, 1968.
Joe proceed to tell me and Kurt Cobain the sordid history of the White album and the song.
Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band album which a friend gave me Christmas 1978. Peppers Lonely Heart’s Club Band was released in July of 1978 starring Peter Frampton, Aerosmith, Bee Gees, and many more.
