In 1970, Alliluyeva answered an invitation from Frank Lloyd Wright's widow,Olgivanna Lloyd Wright, to visit Taliesin West in Scottsdale, Arizona. Alliluyeva described the experience in her autobiographical book Distant Music. Olgivanna believed in mysticism and had become convinced that Alliluyeva was a spiritual replacement for her own daughter Svetlana, who had married Wright's chief apprentice William Wesley Peters, and who had died in a car crash years before. Alliluyeva came to Arizona, and agreed to marry Peters within a matter of weeks. Peters was a member of the Taliesin Fellowship, a group of architects and designers who had been Wright's apprentices and acolytes, and remained dedicated to his work. Alliluyeva became part of the Fellowship community, adopted the name Lana Peters, and migrated with them back and forth between the Scottsdale studio and Taliesin near Spring Green, Wisconsin. The couple had a daughter, Olga. By her own account Alliluyeva retained respect and affection for Wes Peters, but their marriage dissolved under the pressure of Mrs. Wright's influence.

(b. Jason Matthew Thirsk, 25 Dec. 1967; died 29 July 1996)
Jason Matthew Thirsk, the former bassist and co-founder of the California punk band Pennywise died 7/29/96 of a gunshot wound/suicide. Here's something his brother wrote about the great bassist: Jason...was born on Christmas Day 1967. He lived in Hermosa Beach his entire life...In his 8th grade year some of his older friends had him listen to some punk and Oi! records including bands like BLACK FLAG, BAD BRAINS, THE DAMNED, COCKNEY REJECTS ... He started his first band with three of his friends a few months later. They called themselves the JUVENILE DELINQUENTS, or JD's. They were straight ahead three-chord sloppy punk rock with such songs as "Fuck You Teacher" and "Turtle Back Graw." After the JD's, Jason formed the SYNDICATE and then went on to form the really popular local band P.M.A...[who] played mostly punk covers, but Jason soon grew tired of playing other peoples songs. So he quit and in 1988 he teamed up with his friend Fletcher to start a band who was later to be named PENNYWISE. From the start of PENNYWISE Jason wanted to make it a positive band with positive, uplifting lyrics and more melodic music...From 1988 to 1996 Jason...used his music and writing as a form of therapy to help him get over his own problems and addictions...Through 1995 and 1996, his addictions were getting the best of him and eventually they took his life... --Justin Thirsk
