It all started centuries ago, when the first eerie musical chords were composed as a rebellion against God. Or perhaps it was in New Orleans in the early 1900s, when the first jazz players began creating a new kind of sound. Or maybe it was in the 1920s, on a deserted country crossroads in Mississippi, where bluesman Robert Johnson made his deal with the Devil. Whenever it happened, the “Devil’s Music” has since become an integral part of our existence, serving as a soundtrack to our lives through the rhythms of rock-n-roll.
Author Troy Taylor offers up a strange array of frightening tales from the annals of American music, from the tragic deaths of rock icons to curses, murders, and brushes with the supernatural. In this volume, he delves into the way that the occult, magic, and the paranormal have shaped the history of rock-n-roll and the part that they’ve all played in its popularity. He takes the reader along as he uncovers some of rock-n-roll’s most horrific murders, and infamous and little-known twists of fate, like the Buddy Holly Curse, the Curse of the Grand Ole Opry, the 27 Club and others.
Within these pages, you’ll find stories that will make you believe in the haunted history of rock-n-roll through the lives of Jimmy Page and Led Zeppelin, the Allman Brothers, Eric Clapton, Pink Floyd, The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, The Doors, Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, Kurt Cobain, and many more.
Wildly enjoyable and often terrifying, A Song of Dance and Death takes the reader along for a mysterious ride through the history of rock-n-roll. $18.00
