The Covert War Against Rock explores the unanswered questions and disinformation surrounding the deaths of several rock stars. This was good, but not great. Lots of interesting stuff in this but I think in most of these cases Constantine tries way too hard to connect the dots and show government and/or organized crime complicity in some of these deaths. Just because the FBI had a file on them or they associated with gangsters in the music business doesn't mean they were murdered. That being said ...more

Hey, I like conspiracy theories as much as the next guy, but this one takes the cake. You pick a musician, there's a conspiracy for his/her demise. This book is so good that someone stole it from me.

The part of this book that was the most new to me was the section about Tupac Shakur. I recall clearly when he died but I thought little of it. He had seemed like a gangsta to me and gangstas sometimes get shot. I didn’t (and mostly still don’t) listen to rap and knew little about the man, to be honest, but the media portrayal of him painted a picture that substituted itself for real information about the man and his death. Constantine’s research into Shakur’s death revealed a completely differe ...more

If even half of what's written in this book is true, then my entire world view has been forever changed. It's easy enough to write off much of what's in this book as conspiracy theory, but that's the whole point, isn't it?
