Publisher's Summary

Take a Walk on the Dark Side is the ultimate book for today's rock and roll fan: a fascinating compendium of facts, fictions, prophecies, premonitions, coincidences, hoaxes, doomsday scenarios, and other urban legends about some of the world's most beloved and mysterious pop icons. Updating, revising, and expanding on material from his cult classic Hellhounds on Their Trail, Patterson offers up a delectable feast of strange and occasionally frightening rock and roll tales, featuring the ironies associated with the tragic deaths of many rock icons, unsolved murders, and other tales from the fell clutch of circumstance.

Beginning with the fateful place where it all started - a deserted country crossroads just outside Clarksdale, Mississippi, where Robert Johnson made his deal with the devil - through the Buddy Holly curse (rock and roll's first great tragedy) and beyond, this incredible volume uncovers some of rock and roll's most celebrated murders, twists of fate, and decades-long streaks of bad luck that defy rational explanation. Inside you'll find:

  • Facts about Jimmy Page and the Zeppelin Curse.
  • Chilling quirks of fate surrounding the deaths of musicians in the Allman Brothers Band and Lynyrd Skynyrd.
  • A provocative look at "The Club", membership in which requires an untimely death at age 27 and whose inductees include Kurt Cobain, Jimi Hendrix, and Janis Joplin.
  • Cryptic messages in song lyrics that have proved eerily prophetic.

Carefully researched, wildly enjoyable, and often harrowing, Take a Walk on the Dark Side takes the listener on a mysterious ride through rock and roll history. Narrated by Mike Dawson (Left of Boom, Mistrial, The Adam Carolla Show)

    "Enlightening "

    What an in depth summary of things I've heard of were true or rumors, but never could substantiate. The voice used for this audio version was epic.

    "good listen till the number system comes about "
    What made the experience of listening to Take a Walk on the Dark Side the most enjoyable?

    It was riveting and interesting to a point. The first 5-8 chapters was great. Then after it got repetitious,going back to points over and over. The chapters later in the book talk about numerology...maybe I'm just not hip but it wasn't captivating .

    "Interesting tale, mostly coincidence "

    I think the author was looking to hard to find spooky coincidences across rock history. Not tough find.
