ROLLPlug in the guitar, raise the curtain, and step onto the haunted stage

From rock and roll’s pioneers to its contemporary rebels, the greatest names live on after death–in unexpected and frightening ways. Discover thrilling stories of Michael Jackson, Jim Morrison, Led Zeppelin, the Beatles, Amy Winehouse, and many more rockers who’ve been seen haunting their favorite bars, clubs, and homes.

Haunted Rock and Roll covers rock’s entire paranormal legacy, allowing you to explore the famous faces, places, and legends that define one of the biggest cultural movements of all time. Experience true stories of rock star ghosts while enjoying trivia and insights from renowned ghost hunters and researchers. Whether they’re making demonic deals for fame or being chased into the afterlife under mysterious circumstances, rockers have followed the same motto: live fast, die young, and leave a restless spirit.

I’m a sucker for a good ghost story and even better when there’s music involved. I love creepy music and setting the right tone is important. This book, filled with rock and roll icons is interesting.

I enjoyed reading this book. I have to say though, most of the stories lacked much depth. Most were a retelling of stories that have circulated for a while. I don’t know if Mama Cass is really in more than one place in her ghostly form, but I’m not shocked if she is. Some of the stories seemed more like assumptions, but they were interesting.

If you want a set of stories that features rock and roll legends and a few newer artists, then this might be the book for you. It’s light reading and fun.
