  • Terry Greene Terry "Knight" was actually Doris Day's son, Terry Melcher. Melcher had a lot of contacts in the music business including the Beach Boys and, especially, Dennis Wilson. Terry introduced Charles Manson to Dennis and they jammed, maybe even recorded one or two of Manson's songs. When things didn't go the way Charlie expected, he sent his gang after Melcher. Fortunately for Melcher, he had moved from the Hollywood Hills home he once lived in. Unfortunately for Sharon Tate, she had moved in. The rest is history.
