Killing Yourself to Live: 85% of a True Story by Chuck Klosterman

Music writer Chuck Klosterman goes on a cross country trip to visit the places where rock stars died. Starting in the Chelsea Hotel where Sex Pistols Sid Vicious came to an early end, and ending in Seattle at the sight of Kurt Cobain's untimely demise, this is a journey in music. Of course, like all good solo road trips, he does a bit of thinking about his past relationships and the music that brings them up. If you've ever spent a day watching VH1 Classic, own more music than you could ever listen to, or have defined a relationship by a song, album or group, Killing Yourself to Live might resonate with you.
