What a Creep Season 7, Episode 2: John Phillips

John Phillips was a rock and roll icon who helped create “The Mamas & The Papas” and wrote, produced, and co-wrote some of the most beautiful songs of the 60s including California Dreamin’ and “Monday, Monday”. He is one of the founders of the 1967 Monterey Pop Festival and is in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. 

He is also a world-class creep who fat-shamed Cass Elliot and was a lousy parent to his children (to say the least!)

(Trigger Warning! There is mention of sexual assault by a family member. Take care before you listen or just sit this one out. Take care of yourself!)
