Loaded Stories is my personal essay about growing up in wild 1970s California. I tour the uncommon histories of my two fathers, the first shot and killed while hitchhiking in Tennessee, the second a hard-partying outlaw immersed in the general mayhem of post-Manson Family Los Angeles. Lurching from psychedelic gun-packed nightmares to mountain-top “Partridge Family” harmonies, my unique family history shaped by the raucous ’70s is explored in this personal essay.
