It's perhaps the relative modernity of rock 'n' roll that makes the genre a minefield of myths and legends accepted as truth. History hasn't had time to dissect the bunk. Until now. DIVDiscover the real stories behind rock's biggest crocks, how they came to be but why they have persisted. Did Cass Elliott really asphyxiate herself with a ham sandwich? Did the Beatles spark a spliff in Buckingham? Did Willie Nelson do the same in the White House? Did Keith Richards get a complete "oil change" at a Swiss clinic in 1973 to pass a drug test necessary to embark on an American tour with the Stones?/divDIV /divDIVThen there's the freaky (did Michael Jackson own the remains of the Elephant Man?), the quasi-medical (Rod Stewart and that stomach pump?), the culinary (did Alice Cooper and Ozzy Osbourne really do all those things to bats, chickens, etc. onstage?), and the apocryphal (did Robert Johnson sell his soul to the Prince of Darkness in exchange for mastery of the blues?)./divDIV /divDIVIn all, more than 50 enduring lies are examined, explained, and debunked./div

The Boy in the Song is a follow up to 2010's The Girl in the Song. It features the real-life stories that inspired some classic pop songs about the male of the species. While the first book was filled with songs about unrequited love, the follow-up is more varied, with songs written from a number of emotions. There are songs motivated by love and hate, there are tributes and there are biographical tales. Each song is featured on two, four or six pages with a small biography of the artist along with the story of how and why the song was written, and, most intriguingly, what happened after the song became a hit.

Is there a curse on rock 'n' roll? The death of one of the purest musical talents in recent years, Amy Winehouse, has reopened this and many other questions. The “27 Club” really does exist--but that's just the beginning. If there's a house band in the afterlife for young adults whose promise was tragically cut short, it's a pretty fair bet that the artists in this volume are there: Robert Johnson, Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, Brian Jones, Kurt Cobain, Jeff Buckley, and more.
