Ah, so that's why the Lennon McCartney partnership broke down. Once you consciously realise that Billy Shears did indeed replace Paul so much falls into place. The book deals much more with the hip hop scene and the musicians involved there, that being the author's main musical love ... I didn't really need to be told that Jay Zee, Kanye West, Beyoncé etc are from the dark side, I have always known that instinctually but the evidence is interesting and there is enough for the sixties and seventies generation on their musical legends to be fascinated by. Who knew there were so many anomalies behind the deaths of Hendrix and Jim Morrison?
Really enjoyed this book. I have listened to lots of Mark's interviews and he writes just as he speaks-which is very readable. You don't feel like you're ploughing through lots of information as you do with some in this genre, although the information is there it is easily assimilated. I love Mark's style, the subject is depressing but he still manages to make you laugh at times, and I will definitely be purchasing the second volume.
A great book and well researched. I knew quite a lot already after reading Dave McGowan's excellent book but Mark takes it to another level. Recommended reading for all open minded people who have a need for truth over fiction.
This is such an informative book, a real eye opener, hopefully won't have to wait too long for Mark Devlin's next book to be published. His radio interviews are pretty good too easily accessible on iTunes.
These two volumes will make you question, look at and listen to past, present and future songs, videos and album covers in a completely different way, the hidden messages contained within them will shock most people.
After listening to the good vibrations podcast I decided to buy Marks books. This was a very interesting read, which covers a lot of areas in the music industry. Has definitely sparked my interest to look further into some of these artists. On to musical truth 2 now!
