Summary: folk musician and songwriter whose band the Mamas and the Papas spoke to the 1960's generation with breezy songs that epitomized the laid-back, live-and-love attitude of Southern California and the hippie lifestyle, in which the band's success was short-lived as intraband romantic entanglements and drug use led to its demise and their hits include California Dreamin' and San Francisco (Be Sure to Wear Flowers in Your Hair).
