The 27 Club – a group of brilliant, troubled musicians all dead before their time. Live fast, die young, and leave a good looking corpse. But then what? Tune in to Robert Johnson, special guest on a never-ending talk show hosted by the Devil in Hell. Follow Kurt Cobain into the wilderness of Heaven for a long overdue talk with God. Rock and Roll is dead. Welcome to the after-party.
