A collection of funny, decadent, outrageous stories about rock’s greatest superstars. Never-been-told stories of sex, drugs and rock & roll. Plus exclusive photos! It’s your all-access pass…a behind-the-scenes VIP tour of when rock was great. The author takes you backstage and inside bands’ dressing rooms, hotel suites and private planes of Led Zeppelin, Rolling Stones, AC/DC, Eric Clapton, Paul McCartney and dozens more. I Killed Pink Floyd’s Pig is an insider’s perspective by Beau Phillips, a respected radio programmer and former head of marketing at MTV Networks. Phillips was an insider and occasional accomplice who witnessed rock stars in their heyday – from inside their dressing rooms, tour buses, hotel suites and private planes. His book is a collection of first-hand stories that have never been told, accompanied by dozens of photographs. It’s a testament to the remarkable staying power of classic rock. The book’s foreword was written by Sammy Hagar, former lead singer for Van Halen. He and Phillips met in the late 1970s, early in Hagar’s career. Sammy wrote, “Beau has seen all of the rock & roll craziness – and his book is loaded with amazing stories.”
