Welcome To Your Nightmare

Kurt Cobain. GG Allin. Wendy O. Williams. Duane Allman. Travis Barker. Jimmy Page. Janis Joplin. Ozzy Osbourne. Chrissie Hynde. Dee Dee Ramone. Chris Cornell. Marc Bolan. Tommy Lee. Amy Winehouse. Jimi Hendrix. What do these artists all have in common? They’re rowdy rock stars whose over-the-top lifestyles spun out of control, landing them deep in Rock & Roll Nightmare territory.

Here you will read about:

  • The ill-fated 27 Club and how the whole thing got started
  • Rock ‘n’ roll suicides taken out by guns, pills, and booze
  • Shocking deaths ranging from plane crashes to spider bites
  • Bands beset by tragedy, from Badfinger to The Bee Gees
  • Alarming antics covering everyone from Keith Moon to Keith Richards
  • Bizarre curses and strange, unexplained incidents
  • Love, loss, murder, death by drowning, freak fires, and more!

Rock & Roll Nightmares: True Stories, Volume 1 is a meticulously-researched, up-to-date, entertaining, and shocking book that rounds up the tragic tales from the 1960s to the present day.

Volume 2 continues in a separate book and covers the awful incidents at Altamont, underage groupies, Satanic panic, the murder of John Lennon, musicians who’ve died on stage, rock stars who lived on borrowed time, and more. (Oh—there’s a whole series of fiction Rock & Roll Nightmares books, too!)
