Why might Elvis be Jesus? Why will you never find a 75-minute CD? Which time-travel movie featured a guitar being played before the model even existed? Which rock star was described by a groupie as a "dead fish"? Which songs give the worst possible value for money from a pub jukebox? What did Dolly Parton do for Homer Simpson? The answers to these and many more essential questions can be discovered in Rock and Pop Elevens, a foot-on-the-monitor collection of fascinating, scandalous and laugh-out-loud music trivia. Why elevens? Well, as any Spinal Tap fan knows, ten just isn't quite loud enough...So from Kylie to Led Zep, Boy George to Busted and Hendrix to the Teletubbies, Rock and Pop Elevens is packed with stories of sex, substance abuse, filthy lucre, artistic disputes, groupies and tribute bands - everything up to the final encore, death, after which only the very few achieve a comeback tour. Rock And Pop Elevens. It's not just a trivia book. It's a volume.
