It is the stuff of legend. Myths. Tall tales. Twisted truths. You may have heard some of them before: Did Led Zeppelin sign a blood oath with the devil? Does Pink Floyd's classic album Dark Side of the Moon sync up with The Wizard of Oz? Was there really a mud shark?

There are lot of half-truths when it comes to the legends surrounding rock 'n' roll. Some of them contain more than a grain of reality, and in this engaging and sometimes hilarious collection, any bit of truth is tracked down and explained.

For instance, did Mick Jagger and David Bowie spend the night together? Bowie's ex-wife Angela says that they did. She maintains they shared the same bed; they may have been just sleeping off a night of partying and both collapsed on the same mattress.

Or does Sting really hold the key to maintain an erection for hours on end? Apparently, in a conversation with Bob Geldof for Q Magazine, he talked about being a devotee of yoga where you "Don't spill your seed." Strange, but Sting said it.

The book is filled with fun facts and the debunking of rumors. If you think you already know everything there was to know about your favorite bands, just read this.
