“The David Forest Story: From Rock to Cock” on YouTube


David once worked as a club manager for Nash. When the Wonderland Murders occurred, there were many ripple effects through L.A. and other big cities in America. A new era was here.

The liner notes to this video tell an amazing tale on their own. In many ways, the Wonderland slayings were a line of demarcation in time and our society, in that Wonderland was thereafter followed by a rise in violent felony crime statistics, the huge explosion of crack cocaine or, in this case, rock music in L.A., the U.S., as a whole and David’s music management career as well. He left. The “Rock” was Rock music before the murders – and the “Cock” was what Rock became after July 1, 1981. I need to find this documentary.

That’s what David says anyway. The murders did end the 70s chapter of America. Music is a huge part of that. Enough of the metaphors… on to the video!

RIP David Forest
