Syd Barrett's creative vision propelled Pink Floyd from the underground into the mainstream. But the demands of fame quickly became too much. Eventually, he was cast out of the band he helped create, and sadly didn't get the help he needed until late in life.
A Compton gang-member turned record producer, in the early 1990s Suge Knight built an empire on violence and intimidation. From Vanilla Ice's deadly experience on a 15-story balcony to the murder of Tupac Shakur, few who enter Knight's orbit escape unscathed.

a whole of shit in this. he was scared of illegal drugs. he took pharmaceutical drugs for his bowel problems. they never spoke of his manager tieing him into his movie for his own gain or the tortuous schedule in Las Vegas and the fact he would let him out if the country for his own fear of flying. Elvis was no Saint but not the massive arsehole they make him out to be here!!!!

This sounds like a bunch of racism and sexism accusations about random people without any evidence or proof. There is no way to verify these flippant claims without looking up every little thing, and it is not like Parcast is a trustworthy journalist organization. Not interested to continue listening.

I find it disturbing that Clark gable was presented here as a killer but with absolutely no proof?! Snopes has a wonderful article on the research they did to find out if that story is real and there are zero confirmations. it seems the legiticmacy of the claim is in question and that should have been mentioned.

#AmbassadorRecommends My parents were not into show business, yet the pressure was on for "education, education, education". Excellent show - a great cautionary tale.
