Did Charles Manson explicitly express his views on the murders committed by his "Family"?

Manson didn't say much at his trial: much more in a number of interviews that were already conducted with him in the 80s. But during those interviews he was acting so inadequately that it's impossible to take it all seriously. There's no attitude statement there, just the antics of a not particularly healthy man who had no hope of redemption and didn't mind drawing attention to himself.
However, I would point out about the "The murders committed by the Family". After all, he must have personally committed one of these murders--the first. So you could say Manson's words on the subject "Helter Skelter" and all that, he wasn't just pushing other people to commit crimes.
