The Byrds' Gene Clark Scored This Anti-Marijuana "Educational" Clip Starring Sonny Bono (1968)

The Byrds' Gene Clark scored this anti-marijuana "educational" film clip starring Sonny Bono.

Considering his fate, perhaps Sonny should have made a film about the dangers of trees while skiing.

They showed this film to us in our school basement in the 60s.

It's worth a laugh or two now.

Most interesting at this point is the musical score by Gene Clark, although it was performed by Things To Come: Bryan Garofalo (b), Russ Kunkel (d), Larry Robinson (g), Michael Migilars (g), and Lynn Rominger (g). Some believe that's Gene playing harmonica.

Russ Kunkel later played on Gene's masterpiece No Other, as well as drumming for absolutely everybody, including, notably, Dylan and Crosby, Stills & Nash.
