Wa'sup Wednesday: California Dreaming ... Michelle Phillips

Posted on June 24, 2020 at 9:45 AM

Mornin' Ginchers,

Welcome to another Wa'sup Wednesday ... wa'sup Mamas and Papas ... wa'sup Michelle Phillips?  Let's go back to 1965, if you grew up anywhere but California and you heard "California Dreamin' by the Mamas and the Papas" and you saw a picture of the new hippy culture group ... you wanted to hitch hike out to the West Coast.  John Phillips, Denny Doherty, Mama Cass and ... BANG! ... the beautiful, sultry and talented Michelle Phillips.  Not only was Michelle a knockout but she had a voice that was critically acclaimed and deemed by Time Magazine as "the Purist soprano in pop music"  And speaking of "California Dreamin", Michelle co-wrote the song, she was the whole package.  While working as a model, Michelle met John Phillips, who was touring with his band the Journeymen, and the two were married, Michelle was only 18 at the time.  The two began writing music together and put together the singing group the Mamas and the Papas.  Their hit records were like a sound track of the mid sixties; "Monday, Monday", "Creeque Alley" and so many more.  In 1967 they appeared at the Monterey Pop Festival.  There were a lot of problems tugging at the group with infidelity, I won't go into the romantic love triangle, but even with all the issues, John and Michelle had a daughter together, Chynna.  Chynna also went on to become a singer and was part of the vocal trio of the 90's, "Wilson Phillips".  The Mamas and the Papas broke up in 1971 and Michelle began a solo career, became a movie star and a TV celebrity.  In 1970 Michelle married Dennis Hopper while appearing in his film "The Last Movie" but the marriage only lasted 8 days.  in 1973 she appeared in the Movie "Dillinger and began working in televison, and even starred in the "Knots Landing" show.  Do any of you remember the song that Cheech abd Chong recorded called "Basketball Jones"? ... it was a parady of the song "Love Jones" .  Well it was Michelle Phillips and Darlene Love doing the vocals as cheerleaders.  I met Michelle at the Rock n' Roll Hall of Fame at a jam session with Bo Diddley, Little Richard, George Clinton and Joe Walsh ... it was an experience of a life time.  I have some great pieces of memorabilia in my museum of the event.  Watching Michelle sing as a mature woman was amazing but my mind went back to Califronia Dreamin' ... Michelle Phillips!  Till tomorrow, stay safe, stay healthy, help a neighbor when you can ... and, GOD Bless!
