Lou Adler discovered Cheech and Chong and brought the Rocky Horror Show to the screen. He co-wrote "What A Wonderful World" and "The Poor Side of Town." He managed Jan & Dean and The Mamas & The Papas and helped make Monterey Pop Happen. He produced "Tapestry," one of the best selling records of all time.

But as Alex Ben Block of the Hollywood Reporter finds out in this, the final installment of our exclusive career-retrospective interview, Adler is also raising his sons, giving very sick kids summer camp fun at The Painted Turtle, and humbled by his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

We've also posted Alex's entire interview with Adler in case you missed it when it came out a special Off-Ramp podcast.
