I didn’t know about this until just now! Will be ordering in a moment.
Hoping to compliment the thread, here is a photo that I had not seen before-
From Publishers Weekly’s review:
“Journalist Kushins (Nothing’s Bad Luck) delivers a less-than-flattering portrait of one of the greatest rock drummers of all time, a musician whose legacy was marred by his violent reputation … Kushins’s narrative, relying mainly on secondary sources, doesn’t provide any genuine insights into its troubled lead. Zeppelin die-hards may find this intriguing, but it certainly won’t gain the legend any admirers.”

So, not a happy tale.

Yeah , Secondary sources ; I won’t bother with it then ….

And I’m just not interested in reading “dirt” on famous folks …..

I much prefer the circus of unknowns that made up the Jerry Springer show !!!

I find it gross of people to take sloppy seconds and try and make a buck off them.

JB has been gone for 41 years. Seems fair to let him RIP without profiting off the demons he left behind. Worse yet, doing so without credible sources. Sleazy!

Who knows what the guy was really like, but a really special musician he certainly was.
