Buddy Holly.
Jimi Hendix.
Janis Joplin.
Kurt Cobain.
Michael Jackson. Musical gods gone too soon. Truly visionaries of their time, these recording heavyweights are just a few of the names that grace the world's most beloved rock 'n' roll shrines. From Elvis Presley's Graceland home in Memphis to John Lennon's "Imagine" memorial in New York's Central Park to Marc Bolan's roadside shrine in London, "Rock Shrines" reveals the final resting spots, statues, and impromptu shrines commemorating the lives and music of rock's biggest stars. Packed with stunning photography as well as rarely seen memorabilia--autopsy reports, death certificates, and personal writings--that depict the most intimate moments in the lives and deaths of rock's greatest legends, this book is a tribute to all they left behind. A celebration of rock's immortal soul, it is the ultimate compendium for any music lover interested in paying homage to rock's predecessors.
