Rock Shrines is a visual guide to the coolest and most important places of rock reverence in the world, including information on what to expect at each shrine, how to act, and what to take and leave. Full-color throughout with removable memorabilia—and absolutely up to date through Michael Jackson’s death in 2009—it’s the perfect guide to where rock stars’ lives came to an end and where the myths about their lives and deaths began. Rock Shrines includes a foreword by former rock n’ roll groupie Pamela Des Barres, whose book I’m with the Band is being made into a movie by HBO starring Zooey Deschanel.
From the Back Cover:
Musical gods gone too soon. Truly visionaries of their time, these recording heavyweights are just a few of the names that grace the world's most beloved rock 'n' roll shrines. From Elvis Presley's Graceland home in Memphis to John Lennon's "Imagine" memorial in New York's Central Park to Marc Bolan's roadside shrine in London, Rock Shrines reveals the final resting spots, statues, and impromptu shrines commemorating the lives and music of rock's biggest stars.
Packed with stunning photography as well as rarely seen memorabilia—autopsy reports, death certificates, and personal writings—that depict the most intimate moments in the lives and deaths of rock's greatest legends, this book is a tribute to all they left behind. A celebration of rock's immortal soul, it is the ultimate compendium for any music lover interested in paying homage to rock's predecessors.
