The title says it all! The Encyclopedia of Dead Rock Stars covers everyone from 1915 to now. Jeremy Simmonds laid it out for us in a very neat way. In the beginning there is a page of symbols to show how that particular rock star died. Every page has a different story. We get an inside look into that rock star's life. Everyone from Elvis Presley, to Jimi Hendrix, to Sid Vicious is in this book! We get a little taste of their life along with interesting facts that are not always known. Not to mention he even includes some obituaries in there as well! Jeremy Simmonds did a great job counting through the years in an awesome chronological fashion. He literally counts up to modern rock stars from just a few years ago. I encourage any rock fan to pick up a copy of this book. Find your favorite musician and learn something new!
