Chris Salewicz - Dead Gods (The 27 Club) (New Paperback)
Dead Gods : Robert Johnson. Brian Jones. Jimi Hendrix. Janis Joplin. Jim Morrison. Kurt Cobain. Amy Winehouse.
They were inspirational, controversial, talismanic and innovative. They lead lives full of myth, scandal, sex, drugs and some of the most glorious music that has ever heard.
Though each of their lives were cut tragically short at the age of 27, they would all leave the world having changed it irrevocably.
Chris Salewicz tells, in intimate detail, the stories behind these compelling figures. From Robert Johnson and his legendary deal with the devil, to Jimi Hendrix appearing like a psychedelic comet on the London scene, through to Amy Winehouse's blazing talent and her savage appetite for self-destruction.

"A fine read. Although this is essentially a biography of Amy Winehouse - Winehouse's story frames the whole book - there is interesting material found here on Brian Jones, the founder of the Rolling Stones, as well. I'm pretty well versed in the sad tales of Jim Morrison, Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin and Kurt Cobain. So nothing this author wrote about these folks impressed me, really. But it's all thoroughly researched and professionally written." - Goodreads Review.
