Description

Murder, infidelity, suicide, arson, overdose, religious cults, drug trafficking; this podcast explores the alleged true crime antics and criminal connections of musicians we love like Jerry Lee Lewis, The Rolling Stones, Tay K-47, Tupac Shakur, Mayhem, Amy Winehouse and many more. Why? Because real rock stars are more like feral, narcissistic animals than functioning members of society and that is precisely what makes them so damn entertaining. If you love true crime and you love music then get ready to love this podcast.

The Rolling Stones, the most dangerous band on the planet, envisioned their free concert at the Altamont speedway outside San Francisco as the triumphant capstone to their 1969 tour: a west coast Woodstock, and a celebration of free love and hippiedom. But the festival, thrown together in under seventy two hours and with security managed by Hell’s Angels paid in beer, was fated for a tragic and violent end... just like the ‘60s itself.

A$AP Rocky’s upbringing; Harlem, Riker’s, and his own instincts and sense of history informed his world view: A view that included not only a healthy respect for the healing powers of LSD but also to want no part of the political maelstrom surrounding our cartoon president, Donald J. Trump. The bottling and selling of American outrage, for Rocky was a race to the bottom, a distraction. Despite my own distaste for Trump and for all politicians, I respect Rocky’s decision to attempt to ascend above the fray. The irony is that A$AP Rocky’s own behavior led him straight into the political fray; jailed in an international incident and in the end, in need of the unlikeliest of political allies to help him escape.

But when she passed away in a hotel suite bath, the music industry gala downstairs that she was supposed to attend went on without her. How did it all come to this?

On a single Saturday in 2000, Marshall Mathers assaulted two separate men with a pistol and fought with his wife outside a nightclub, resulting in lawsuits and charges that hung over the completion of his original trilogy of albums. For that one day, the rap persona Slim Shady had escaped into the real world. How had Slim Shady come to be, and why had he gotten out?

Big Lurch, didn’t just rap about standard hip-hop culture; he rapped about serial killers like Jeffrey Dahmer and horror movie villains like Jason Voorhees and Freddy Krueger, and in the process contributed to a sub-genre of hip-hop called, “horrorcore.” He also smoked way too much PCP. So much so that he could not separate his horrorcore lyrics and the horror movies he watched from reality. The result? Unspeakable. Not just murder. Cannibalism. This is a special Halloween re-release of the Season 2 episode on Big Lurch Learn more about your ad-choices at https://news.iheart.com/podcast-advertisers
Madonna always knew her life would be art. She rose through the late 70s New York scene reinventing pop iconography and feminism alike. But whether it was Toronto police threatening her for indecency, her short-fuse husband, Hollywood bros exploiting her charisma, or far worse, Madonna learned quick: the world doesn’t know what to do with a truly free woman.

Iggy Pop pushed rock further than anyone before him, committing to live acts of sex, sickness, and rumored suicide on stage. From his cocaine fueled bromance with David Bowie, to his search for inspiration in the voodoo rituals of Haiti, Iggy Pop never just crossed the line between art and madness. He bled all over it, and danced on the stains. Learn more about your ad-choices at https://news.iheart.com/podcast-advertisers
Motown Records is one of the most successful musical industry endeavors or all time. The music and the megastars Motown produced; Smokey Robinson, Diana Ross, Stevie Wonder and the Jackson 5 defined a generation. But that success is marred by rumors. Rumors that the record label and its innovative owner were controlled by the quote unquote black hand of the white American mob.

Led Zeppelin were the biggest band on the planet. The great white shark of the seventies. They defined excess. The designed the avatar for the heavy metal rock star; themselves. Along the way there were violent brawls, car crashes, lots of cocaine, alcohol, satanic sexual rituals and a very freaked out David Bowie.

Part two of the N.W.A story finds the group dead center in America’s crosshairs due in part to their own violent behavior and at a crossroads creatively. Death Row’s Suge Knight, Public Enemy’s Chuck D. and a young thug from the east coast all ride shotgun to Dre, E, Cube, Yella and Ren as the group finds itself having predicted yet another one of America’s darkest moments.

N.W.A, the self proclaimed, “most dangerous group in America” were seen as violent, thuggish, profanity spewing criminals but they had nothing on those who were sworn to serve and protect them in South Central, Los Angeles. The group’s hard hitting beats and reality rhymes launched a “gangsta rap” trend in music that still thrives today and their album, Straight Outta Compton predicted one of the most notoriously violent events in American history.  Learn more about your ad-choices at https://news.iheart.com/podcast-advertisers

Madonna was born in Bay City, Michigan, my hometown. If you're unfamiliar with Michigan, do the hand thing, Bay City is located between your thumb and index finger. She had some unflattering things to say about our town years ago. She called it a "stinky little town" or something along those lines. We have a sugar beet processing plant on the edge of town, not far from where she lived. It smells awful sometimes, you get used to it. She also refers to Bay City as a suburb of Detroit, we aren't. Bay City is about 15 minutes north of Saginaw, which puts us about 2 hours away from Detroit. Madonna changed her tune at some point and tried to convince Bay City to honor her, we didn't. We told Madonna she could kick rocks, pretty sure that's when she became British. I'm pretty sure her grandma died here.

eeesh.... a bit of bs to say Madonna grew up working class. she likes ppl to believe this, to make money. her father was an executive for one of the Big 3, auto companies. she's from a city called Rochester, and it is FAR from poor. it has blue collar areas, and she isn't from one of them. she had a padded upbringing. the only gripe she can say is she was picked on in school, some say because she was a real nasty person

Whaaaaaaaaaaa! I am an avid Tupac fan but have always disliked Suge Knight without a full understanding of why. Now I know what I subconsciously knew all along. Great 2 part episode! Thanks for telling the stories Jake!

wow what a romance for the ages, I loved it. "I'll kick my massive, by anyone's guess un-kickable drug habit for you, now and for the rest of our lives" is just about the most romantic thing I can think of. thank you!
