13 O’Clock Episode 69 – Mysteries of Rock and Roll

The history of rock music is littered with tragic deaths and strange legends, and on this episode of 13 O’Clock, Tom and Jenny are going to examine some of the most fascinating mysteries of rock and roll, from Robert Johnson selling his soul to the devil at the crossroads to Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon syncing up to The Wizard of Oz; from the “accidental” deaths of Brian Jones and Bobby Fuller to the persistent myths that Elvis didn’t die in 1977 and was perhaps channeled by a man named Orion; from the bizarre proclivity of rock stars to die at the age of 27 to the possibility that Sammy Hagar was once abducted by aliens (which would explain a lot), it’s a darkly whimsical journey through the byways and oddities of musical history. Just take those old records off the shelf and sit and listen to episode 69 by yourself.
