“They Rocked Hard and Died Young” (Includes Video Notebooks at the End of the Manuscript)

There are so many young rock and rollers who died before their time. We can only guess what they would have produced into middle age or beyond. If you look at bands like The Who and Rolling Stones who have carried on for decades after losing a core member, you realize just how fragile human life really is.

In this eBook, I discuss their lives and contributions to their art of Pop Music and hopefully add some context.

There are so many legendary and interesting stories like that of father and son Tim & Jeff Buckley, who both died prematurely in their primes. Amy Winehouse, Jim Morrison, Janis Joplin, Otis Redding, Jimi Hendrix, Nick Drake, Marc Bolan, Keith Moon, John Lennon, Sid Vicious, Brian Jones, Elliott Smith and Buddy Holly.

Context is the key element when describing art and how that art affects the world. All of these artists contributed in their own way and will forever.
