Summary

Is rock 'n' roll cursed? This expanded edition of the music fan's favorite explores the question, adding six new biographies to the sad list of loss. Although drugs and excess led to many of these premature passings, Rolling Stone journalist Michele Primi also investigates other mysteries, including the death of John Lennon and the myth of the "27 Club"—the many artists (like Jim Morrison, Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, and Amy Winehouse) who died in the seemingly ill-fated year following their 27th birthday.
