(00:00) Brian Jones of the Rolling Stones was not a pleasant person and was removed from the group just weeks before his death. Jim Morrison was never happy as a rock sex symbol. He wanted to be poet. All of the musicians in this book have a back story but what, if anything, did they have in common? Did they all commit suicide? Indirectly, their lifestyles were self-destructive but only Cobain committed suicide. The stories are tragic but they have lessons. They are sure to initiate discussion.
Jimi Hendrix – “Castles Made of Sand”
Janis Joplin – “Me and Bobby McGee”
Nirvana – “All Apologies”
