WHERE YOU GOIN' WITH THAT GUN IN YOUR HAND: THE TRUE CRIME BLOTTER OF ROCK 'N' ROLLA captivating look at 21 true-crime cases in rock 'n' roll history.To Alice Cooper, the outlaw quality of rock 'n' roll is little more than theater. "Justbecause I cut the heads off dolls, doesn't mean I hate babies," he once said. Butothers have lived by the criminal philosophy espoused in their work. "The onlynegative thing about murder is that when you kill someone, they . . . no longersuffer," said Norwegian black-metal rocker Varg Vikernes of Mayhem in 1993, thesame year he stabbed musical rival Euronymous to death.His tale is prominently featured in Where You Goin' with That Gun in YourHand? The True Crime Blotter of Rock 'n' Roll. The book examines a total of 21fatal crimes tied to the music industry, such as the murders of Marvin Gaye,Biggie Smalls, Tupac Shakur, and Selena. In the case of Vikernes-dubbed themost violent musician in the history of metal-the performer is the perpetrator. Inother instances-the deaths of John Lennon or Run DMC's Jam Master Jay, forexample-the star is the victim. Other chapters deal with conspiracy theoriesinvolving musicians whose lives ended prematurely (e.g., the Rolling Stones' BrianJones, the Doors' Jim Morrison, and Nirvana's Kurt Cobain).Each story is written as a compelling narrative, in a style the author perfectedwhile writing several true-crime books, as well as December 8, 1980: The Day JohnLennon Died and Too Fast to Live, Too Young to Die: James Dean's Final Hours.
