Amazing how many "music gods" were violent POS. Well told and researched, hosted by a mellow-voiced smooth talker and complemented with equal parts dreamy and eerie music. Just don't binge too much, it can get dark.

Very interesting. Thoroughly researched and cleverly presented. Sometimes I wonder where hard facts end and educated conjecture begins but, it's all in fun so I just enjoy.

Oasis Pt. 1: Hooliganism, Hedonism, Rock Star Anthems and the “Greatest Rock ‘N’ Roll Band on the Planet"
00:32:42

Few bands have come from as little and made as much of themselves as Oasis. Along the way they were wildly entertaining — unlike anything England or the United States had ever seen — and fully committed to the life of the rock star and to making the greatest rock ‘n’ roll music the world had ever heard. Through it all they famously fought, with fans, with police and with each other. They drank excessively and did copious amounts of drugs and didn’t care who knew about it. They were England’s new rock ‘n’ roll saviors and they were stacked with Beatlesesque hooks and Sex Pistols-inspired attitude and seemingly always on the verge of breaking up. 

This is Part One of a two-part Disgraceland episode on Oasis. To listen to all episodes of Disgraceland, follow @disgracelandpod on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook. Show notes available at disgracelandpod.com.

Tupac Shakur Pt. 1: 1960s Radicalism Gives Way to Socially Conscious Rap, a Charismatic Screen Star, and Deadly Violence
00:32:41

This is Part 1 of a two-part Disgraceland episode on Tupac Shakur. To hear Part 2 now, for free, visit amazon.com/disgraceland.

Tupac Shakur was many things. He was a supremely talented MC and was wildly charismatic in front of the camera. He was also violent, angry and completely unable to keep himself out of trouble. Part one of his story traces his rise through the radical influence of his Black Panther lineage, the deadly violence that seemed to follow him wherever he went and the inevitably of both prison and superstardom.

Jerry Lee Lewis: The Killer and Getting Away With Murder
00:27:01

The night before Jerry Lee Lewis’ fifth wife died, she made a phone call to her mother. She told her that she was thinking of leaving the rock ‘n’ roll pioneer, but that he wouldn’t let her. She also made a second call—this one to the sister of her high school sweetheart, making plans for the sister to come take her away from Jerry Lee later that month. Then … in mid-sentence the phone went dead. The next day, Mrs. Jerry Lee Lewis was found dead. Placed nearly on top of a perfectly made bed in the newlywed couple’s guest room. Despite the bruises on her body, the blood under her fingernails, the scratches on her husband’s hands, and the mountain of other physical and anecdotal evidence, the death was ruled an accident. Did Jerry Lee Lewis kill his wife and get away with murder?
