Alkaline Trio Song About ‘Sadie’

Alkaline Trio

Alkaline Trio drummer Derek Grant spoke with Time Off magazine about their song ‘Sadie’, which is about mass murderer Charles Manson family member Sadie Mae Glutz. “Next to Manson, she’s the biggest focal point,” Grant said. “She came across as insane, but when you read about her history, there was more to it. It was sad, and that’s what Matt connected with when he was reading about the Manson family. I read the book ‘Helter Skelter’ when I was ten, it was fascinating. A few years ago, Matt read it too. In the song he sings of this tragic person as endearing, almost as a love song.”
