Drawing on extensive groundbreaking research and details of seven icons' deaths, David Comfort's expos© sheds new light on the tragic price of fame. Each chapter traces one of seven artists's lives - Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, Jim Morrison, Elvis Presley, John Lennon, Kurt Cobain and Jerry Garcia - from their childhood traumas to their fatal attractions and shows how much they had in common, as if cast in the same essential mythic legend. All were obsessed with becoming stars, but once they achieved fame, each paid the price for their stardom.
