Description
The coauthor of three editions of the Rough Guide to Rock, Jeremy Simmonds here tracks down the bitter (and sometimes not-so-bitter) ends of some of pop music's most famous and lamented talents, providing the hard facts that variously dispel or reinforce the storied ends of such legends as Sam Cooke, Buddy Holly, Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, Elvis Presley, Sid Vicious, Biggie Smalls, and Tupac Shakur. Simmonds also clues us in on such superlatives as which band boasts the most dead members, and which lost the most members at one time; tells us whose suicide note read simply "Sorry about all the blood"; and finds out once and for all whether Cass Elliot really choked to death on a ham sandwich.
