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!)


Brooke Lewis Bellas, my lovely and talented friend, collaborator, co-producer, and now co-author, shared the big news earlier this week that our book, SEX DEATH ROCK N ROLL 2: THE RUSSELL AQUARIUS EDITION, snagged Runner Up in the anthology category for the Los Angeles Book Festival Awards! They get **thousands** of book submissions, so this is quite an honor for us! The authors are: Brooke, me, Darren Gordon Smith, Nancy Long, and Martin Olson. Go, team! If you haven’t read the book yet, it’s cheap on Amazon… and the movie it’s tied into, THE SECOND AGE OF AQUARIUS, is streaming everywhere.


Stars on Guitars is now free with ads on Amazon Prime! It’s also free to members of AARP with your membership through their own movie portal. Would you rather have the DVD? I still have a few autographed copies (Don Wilson) left.


The Second Age of Aquarius and Fetish Factory are streaming now!
