4.0 out of 5 stars Great writing style, interesting real life accounts 8 Mar. 2014
By Majanka - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

I was hesitant to pick up Haunted Rock & Roll because, while I do enjoy rock music, I’m not the world’s greatest fan. I know of the connection between rock & roll music and hauntings and curses, but I was skeptical about it. I’m glad I picked up this book, because not only did I learn a ton about some of our world’s greatest rock & roll legends, I also began to suspect the curse may not be make-believe after all. But even if you don’t believe in curses, hauntings or anything supernatural, then you can still read this book for the wealth of knowledge it provides about rock & roll artists.

This is one of the best true haunting books I’ve read in terms of writing style. The author has a great way with words, and with submerging the reader into the story. He also has a vast knowledge of the world of rock & roll, but instead of just dumping that info on the reader, he tells us stories about some of the most famous and most haunted people to have walked our earth. I particularly enjoyed the stories about the deals at the crossroads and the 27 club. Even though I’m still not entirely convinced there is actually a demon responding to people who ask them for favors at crossroads, I must admit some of the accounts mentioned in the book are suspicious to say the least.

All the stories about the 27 club – a “club” of famous singers who passed away at the age of 27, of which notable members include Kurt Cobain and Amy Winehouse – are more than a little creepy. The toll of fame must be pretty high.

Some of the stories are more sad than creepy, and it shows there’s a thin line between a “curse” and something that is just a natural cause of living a life in the spotlights. But in some stories, there are way too many coincedences, which made me wonder if some supernatural power was involved after all.

A decent read for anyone who enjoys true haunting books, and especially for those with an additional interest in the world of rock and roll.

3.0 out of 5 stars Could Have Been Better researched! 22 Aug. 2014
By Joy Andis - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I applaud the fact that this book addresses many things that are often overlooked by the modern media, however, I think the author borrows heavily from other published books, and is not too well researched. There are more than a few glaring mistakes about several of the artists, As a form of entertainment it is a good read. For statements of historical facts, one should look elsewhere, and probably beginning with R. Gary Patterson's "Take A Walk On The Dark Side" which has been heavily quoted here.
5.0 out of 5 stars A page turner! 16 Feb. 2015
By Traci Barlow - Published on
Fantastic! This book sucked me into it from the very first page. It captures your interest from the very beginning. The author has a wonderful way with words.
He tells stories of many famous rock & roll legends. It is well researched, he has a vast knowledge on the history of rock & roll.
This is the best haunting books I've read. He covers the crossroad to Club 27. Sid and Nancy and the Beatles was my favorite part. Robert Johnson was very educational for me.
This is a great read for anyone interested in ghost and spirit folklore.

I've read a lot about curses and urban legends behind rock and roll and Hollywood stars. This book, although short, gives a lot of detail behind some of the great legends in music history. If you're looking for a glimpse into rock and roll mythology then read this book. I think you'll enjoy it!
