True crime music podcast, DISGRACELAND, started is still in it’s first season is 7 episodes deep and still growing. It is about musicians and their crimes of murder and such. The opening always gives the number one song at the time of the story in the podcast followed by the real life facts you may or may not know about music’s greatest, craziest, memorable or not so memorable artists.
DISGRACELAND kicked off it’s first season with JERRY LEE LEWIS. Jerry’s career was hot as fire despite marrying a teenage bride. It is the perfect story to hook the listener. Young brides, mayhem and murder!?!
Host, JAKE BRENNAN, delves into the behind the scenes and history of some of music’s greatest stories like LISA “LEFT EYE” LOPES of TLC, crooner SAM COOKE, and bassist SID VICIOUS of SEX PISTOLS (this writer’s favorite episode so far) and more. You’ll hear the twisted tales of love gone wrong, drunken nights fueled by hormones, a mother’s love, dark metal madness and more. Each tale more intriguing than the last.
If you are a music fan or a true crime fan, DISGRACELAND is a small and quick peek into the darker side of music. They’re less than 40 minutes each and an absolute addiction to listen to. It humbles the musicians that have been put on pedestals into every day humans, showing that the “famous” stars are just like every one else.
