"One of the twenty greatest music books of all time." -- BBC's Music for the Millennium, December 1999From the Publisher:
Updated classic study of macabre links between drugs and pop
Drugs and pop have been inextricably intertwined since marijuana and jazz flourished in mob-controlled 1920s prohibition speakeasies. Shapiro documents the origins and progress of each new development in drugs and pop and tells in detail the stories of music's most famous drug casualties - Bird, Hendrix, Morrison, Moon, Vicious et al - while examining the collusion of the billion dollar record industry. First published in 1988, this edition is fully revised and now covers the rise of crack and rap, ecstasy and the dance culture and the return of the wasted junkie rock star.
