Death by Rock 'n' Roll
Sex, Drugs and Violence Among America's IdolseBook - 2011
Using the slaying of Marvin Gaye as an abject example of the rock and roll lifestyle, David J. Krajicek's Death by Rock and Roll pulls together the threads of the violent ends of music stars like John Lennon, Sam Cooke, Tupac Shakur, soul saxophone legend King Curtis, and many others. Between overdoses and suicides of what are often fragile stars, rock and roll seems to qualify as one of Americas most dangerous professions. Here, experts weigh in on whether there are patterns to the violence of rock and roll and whether there have been warning signs in some cases that may have saved some lives.
