    Presenting DISGRACELAND - Prince: Control, Ecstasy, Dark Funk and Fentanyl

    Presenting DISGRACELAND - Prince: Control, Ecstasy, Dark Funk and Fentanyl

    Few pop artists achieved the dizzying creative and career highs that Prince did. An artist who famously stayed away from drugs and most anything that would cause him to lose control, Prince was aided in his legendary musical output by a small army of creative alter egos, who helped him maintain control and helped him reign supreme as one of the greatest pop musicians of all time, until of course, all control was lost.

    Presenting DISGRACELAND - Ozzy Osbourne: The Prince of Darkness, Randy Rhoads’ Plane Crash and the Saving Grace of a Strong Woman

    Presenting DISGRACELAND - Ozzy Osbourne: The Prince of Darkness, Randy Rhoads’ Plane Crash and the Saving Grace of a Strong Woman

    Ozzy Osbourne, along with his bandmates in Black Sabbath, invented heavy metal, and throughout Ozzy’s post-Sabbath solo career he would invent new, self-destructive forms of sabotage. Arrested at an early age for breaking and entering, Ozzy Osbourne refused to conform to societal norms and common decency. He would go on to be arrested numerous times and escape too many near-death experiences to recount, including a plane crashing into his tour bus that would ultimately kill a dear friend and bandmate.

    ENCORE - Sharon Osbourne: Ozzy, Sabbath, and the Al Capone of Pop

    ENCORE - Sharon Osbourne: Ozzy, Sabbath, and the Al Capone of Pop

    Before she was a lightning rod television personality, Sharon Osbourne was a savvy music business operator under the tutelage of her maniacal father, the “Al Capone of Pop,” Don Arden. Together, Sharon and Ozzy just barely escaped his poisonous grasp, but that was only part of what she would have to survive.

    Presenting DISGRACELAND - Rick James: Superfreak Is an Understatement

    Presenting DISGRACELAND - Rick James: Superfreak Is an Understatement

    Rick James may have been born into a life of crime, but he was determined to make his way in life through music. He intimidated George Clinton, inspired Prince, and more than likely saved Jim Morrison’s life. Rick James was rock ‘n roll’s Zelig. He was also sex-crazed, dangerous, and heavily addicted to crack cocaine. These three traits led to two separate arrests for the kidnapping and torture of two different women. Listen to this episode of Disgraceland to hear the tale of the one and only Superfreak, Rick James.

Lisa LR ,

Wow.

I’m late to the party on this one, but it’s my new favorite. Love all the stories and the way they’re delivered!

katlantaaa ,

No new content

It feels lazy to just keep putting out “rewinds”. If there isn’t new content, stop spamming us. I was a fan of all the Double Elvis shows so all the “rewinds” are exhausting

I sense a bouns comming sooo ,

Would be Bride of the Lizard King

I loved Eleanor’s precious account Pamela Courson. It was a lovely de-vilification of the young lady who was, but never was, Jim Morrison’s wife.
