Following in the footsteps of the death-obsessed Catholic martyrology, Rock Star Martyrs will be available soon—a morbid history for devoted music fans and an invaluable refresher course for any Mayan shamans who appear through wormholes opening on December 21, 2012.
For a year now at RockStarMartyr.net, on each star’s deathday we have provided solemn meditations on the sainthood of sinners. For those of you who have followed the liturgy, we are glad you could make it to the service.
Brandt Hardin and I are hard at work on extensive revisions and expansions to bring you a potent spiritual tool for edifying indulgence and primal enlightenment. With any luck, you’ll laugh yourself to death. Organized as a calendar of saints for fanboys and groupies, the book will include all of the biographies you’ve enjoyed here, plus additional facts and anecdotes, new chapters on the ritual sacrifice of musicians and death cults in history, and over a dozen new portraits and biographies.
As you anxiously wait to board a plane, sit on the toilet with a syringe, watch records spin on the turntable, or casually munch a ham sandwich, Rock Star Martyrs will open a space for quiet meditation upon the dead rock stars who entered Eternity through these otherwise mundane rituals.
