ABOUT THE BOOK:
Beginning with the creation of Bauhaus's seminal debut hit 'Bela Lugosi's Dead,' David J. Haskins offers a no-holds-barred account of his band's rapid rise to fame and glory in the late '70s, their sudden dissolution in the '80s, and their subsequent--and often strained--reunions. In between, he explores his work as a solo performer, and with acclaimed trio Love and Rockets--culminating in the devastating fire that ripped through the sessions for their 1996 album Sweet F.A. He also delves deep into his exploration of the occult, drawing together a diverse cast of supporting characters, including William S. Burroughs, Alan Moore, Genesis P. Orridge, and Rick Rubin. Bristling with power and passion, music and magic, Who Killed Mister Moonlight? is a rock 'n' roll memoir like no other.
