Description
The bible of music's deceased idols--Jeff Buckley, Sid Vicious, Jimi Hendrix, Tupac, Elvis--this is the ultimate record of all those who arrived, rocked, and checked out over the last 40-odd years of fast cars, private jets, hard drugs, and reckless living. The truths behind thousands of fascinating stories--such as how Buddy Holly only decided to fly so he'd have time to finish his laundry--are coupled with perennial questions, including Which band boasts the most dead members? and Who had the bright idea of changing a light bulb while standing in the shower? , as well as a few tales of lesser-known rock tragedies. Updated to include all the rock deaths since the previous edition--including Ike Turner, Dan Fogelberg, Bo Diddley, Isaac Hayes, Eartha Kitt, Michael Jackson, Clarence Clemons, Amy Winehouse, and many, many more--this new edition has been comprehensively revised throughout. An indispensable reference full of useful and useless information, with hundreds of photos of the good, the bad, and the silly, this collection is guaranteed to rock the world of trivia buffs and diehards alike.
