The Beau Brummels: 'That's The Way We Want It'

Louise Criscione, KRLA Beat, 23 April 1966

HOLLYWOOD: Unlike last summer there are no female hikers along Benedict Canyon Drive. No long bangs – no bell bottoms – no police cars. You see, the Beatles aren't there now and as far as the girls know there's no action, no popular group, staying up in Benedict. All's quiet – they think. But they're wrong. The Beau Brummels are there.
