Hey BADLANDS fans: Need a little more true crime in your life? Yeah, us too. If you love BADLANDS, we want to introduce you to host Jake Brennan's other show—the rock and roll true-crime podcast that started it all, DISGRACELAND. Now in its 8th season, DISGRACELAND is an award-winning anthology series about musicians getting away with murder and behaving very badly, including episodes on the Beach Boys, Ozzy Osbourne, Whitney Houston, the Rolling Stones, Cardi B, Led Zeppelin, and many more.In 1960s London, for young guitar enthusiasts, believing that “Clapton is God” was practically the 11th Commandment. In 1970 he lent his big, sticky tone to yet another band: Derek and the Dominos. The group’s white-hot blues burned bright for barely more than a year, but their impact was massive. Guided by drug, alcohol and heartbreak free-fall, Eric Clapton created one of rock’s most recognizable guitar riffs, while drummer Jim Gordon contributed God’s great piano coda. Except Gordon was guided by something far more sinister — something that started with incessant voices in his head, and ended with a hammer, a butcher knife, and a dead mother.To hear all episodes of Disgraceland for free, visit amazon.com/disgraceland.
