Some of the rumours and mysteries in this music myth-debunking volume are old favourites, such as Paul McCartney's alleged death, Robert Johnson's sale of his soul to the devil and the subject of 'You're so Vain.' Others are more obscure, such as Toto drummer Jeff Porcaro's death, what's not tattooed on Tom Waits's chest, and the inspiration for 'Hotel Yorba.'

Paul Watson was born a rebel with one hand, who became a journalist specializing in war and guerrilla fighters. When Watson reported on Osama bin Laden's first battlefield victory in Somalia, his Pulitzer Prize-winning photo of the desecrated corpse of Staff Sgt. David Cleveland - whose Black Hawk was shot down over the streets of Mogadishu - helped hand bin Laden one of his earliest propaganda coups. With each new beheading announced on the news, Watson wonders whether he helped teach the terrorists one of their most valuable lessons.
