Big Lurch: Hip Hop Cannibal

10/16/2018
More
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.

Keith Moon of the Who was the prototype for rock drummers. Both onstage and off. His drumming was wholly unique. Like his bandmates behavior, it was violent and like his personality it was electric. Everyone loved Keith Moon aka “Moon The Loon” and it seemed that people never tired of his always hilarious and sometimes violent, drunken hijinks until one fateful night when a crew of British skinheads took issue with the drummer’s rockstar excess. The results were disastrous.

Frank Sinatra had it all. Then lost it all. Then got it all back tenfold. He was a man of extreme talent, confidence and insecurity. And he had powerful and dangerous friends. He orchestrated some of the greatest music ever made and he also orchestrated an alliance between one friend, mob boss, Sam Giancana and another friend, John F. Kennedy that would help the latter win the white house and in the end prove disastrous for Frank and the country.

The Rolling Stones: Sleeping With the First Lady and Trafficking Heroin

5/1/2018

In the 1970s, the world regarded The Rolling Stones as an insular band of hedonistic and glamorous pansexual junkies. But all of the trouble they’d stirred up during the 60s and early 70s would be dwarfed by the mess they would cause in Canada in 1977. Up until that point Keith’s constitution, the band’s money and collective luck had been enough to fend off destruction, but the scandal they embroiled themselves in touched the highest levels of government, threatened to destroy the band and...
