Los Angeles - (Reuterus): "Incest, a game that all the family can play? I guess that's why they called the band The Mamas and the Papas," lyricist's daughter Mackenzie Phillips said on TV on Wednesday.
The recovering addict was quoting from a memoir relating how on the eve of her 1979 wedding to Rolling Stones gofer Jeff Sessler she was initiated into wild honeymoon sex with her father
"Yeah, quaaludes and bourbon, half a dozen spliffs and a straight-up smack/coke highball....Pop sure knew how to party!"
The band's '69 debut smash-hit California Screamin' made her father a fortune, much of which was either snorted away, mainlined or went up in smoke.
The shortly after her wedding the band split up and Mackenzie began performing in public with her father in The Nude Mamas & The Papas.
Mama Cass died in 1974.
