Retropop Scene: 
Emmett, Mac and Peter Coyote

Al Aronowitz, The Blacklisted Journalist, 1 May 1996

I. NEW YORK, October 27, 1971 Emmett Grogan sent Tuesday Weld home early. He didn't like all the publicity that was going around about the two of them being seen together and he was determined there was nothing going to drug this particular Saturday night for him. He had been high now for two weeks, higher probably than he had ever been in his life, higher even than when he climbed the Matterhorn. You wouldn't think that an Irish kid from Brooklyn with a ring in his ear would take time out in his life to climb the Matterhorn, would you? But you'll read about it, you'll read about it.
