I wish there were new episodes…there is a podcast with a similar format but this one much better.

It’s a great show I love it so very much but please make one about Juice WRLD
Ben.Khidd via Apple Podcasts · Ghana · 04/05/23
Please update your podcast on Whitney Houston. Several key people were left out. The autopsy report was left out. Information about Krissy is left out. Please do your research before assuming what you know to be true is true. It is sad that so many people are profiting off of the death of the...Read full review »

Learned things I didn’t know, remembered things forgotten. The voices don’t overpower the story yet fit right in. So hope they do more

Wow what an awful podcast. I listened to the episode about Keith Moon, that basically declared him the greatest of all time, which is garbage. It also stated Keith was the key to The Who. Aaa maybe Pete is the one responsible for 99% of their music? And then Bonn Scot. Give me a break calling him...Read full review »

I have to say you have to be in the mood for a podcast about your first love dying. Mine was Marc Bolan. I adored him. This podcast is so well delivered. The research, the writing and then the speakers - marvellous. I have just listened to Death of Bon Scoot, what a great one to start on, if...Read full review »

Great storytelling and I’m learning ao much about the people whose work I have loved. Bravo!
PW from GR via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/24/22
These are so well read and just long enough. I love my music so like hearing these back stories. But please, whoever puts these together - do something with the sound levels. They are all over the place. Some places, it’s really quiet, so you turn it up then the main podcast kicks in and it’s...Read full review »

Very nice!

Different takes on lives you might know about. How they lived, where they came from how events lead to their often tragic deaths
cjfifhfjf via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 04/11/22
Love the show. Keith Flint episode in particular. Keep it up !!!
pppetaro via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 03/22/22
No music rights and a reverential approach to all of the artists without critical comment or analysis. Sounds like a news of the world journalist writing for a very low IQ audience. Awful.
AR3942 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 03/03/22
I just recently came across your podcast and I’m hooked. So much interesting information and it’s good to hear the stories about the end of their lives. I really hope you can do an episode on Sam Cookes murder mystery and Scott Weiland also
Seanh2412 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/27/22
A nice style of story telling but not enough detail. Describing the death of someone should take more than the half hour or so that these episodes take.
SamT74 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 02/21/22
Love love your podcast. Would love to hear you tell Scott Weilands story ❤️
JNeal86 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/12/22
A lovely, dreamily read podcast, maybe read a bit slow at times, feels like they're trying to string it out a bit. Not too many adverts, and great information makes this a MUST listen. SUBSCRIBE!!!!!!! xRead full review »

Was enjoying the episodes up to the Elvis one when they quoted his place of birth as Tulsa (Tupelo) and 1938 (1935)
Elvis1938? via Apple Podcasts · Ireland · 01/17/22
Love the show (as well as the other Death Of A series) but no new shows for a while. Come back!!
GeauxSaints1967 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/23/21
Overall I like this podcast. The podcasts are well produced, and I like the narrative nature of them, rather than just a historical discussion of the facts of each rock star’s life and death. They are also a nice compact 30 minutes each. My main quibble is with the Buddy Holly episode, the one...Read full review »

Listen also to the other “Death Of” in the stable.
paul1332 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 08/05/21
You may think you’ve heard Jake Brennan/Disgraceland tell some of the same stories in a similar format; and yes, you probably have. But there are some truly unique gems here you won’t want to miss. There are different resources and different approaches to tell a unique side to stories. The...Read full review »

This show is so well voiced and has given me an insight into so many stories I didn’t know about
Orla 🇮🇪 via Apple Podcasts · Ireland · 05/04/21
Love the voice and soothing tone !
Tricia Rash via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/31/21
I listen to a lot of Pods and the series of Death of a Rock Star and Death of a Sports Star are in my opinion of the very highest quality. The length, content and delivery are top end. Well done to all involved and please keep telling these stories. Ady Woolley

If you love music and have an interest in the lives of those who are forever intrenched in musical history, this podcast is for you. Every episode is beautifully written with delicious wording. The narrators are exceptional and bring the words to life in a way that is essential to story-telling....Read full review »

Listened to them all - great stories behind the names. Thanks for creating!
Princess Peck 2011 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 03/07/21
Look the tones, writing and wit in these telling tales of lost and appreciation of the impact these people have left on our lives with their music and lives.
dretaz via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/27/21
Really enjoyed most of these episode except the John Lennon episode. I thought it was a bit in poor taste. I realise that the podcast is literally called Death of a Rockstar so maybe I should have seen it coming 😂! Every other episode is great but there was something about this particular episode...Read full review »

Sounds good in the beginning, then all facts are twisted, luring people into lies using dramatic voice.
QnadiaQ via Apple Podcasts · Thailand · 02/17/21
Absolutely wonderful stories of musicians, their turmoil and often tragic lives and their leaving from this earth. Beautifully written ,beautifully told narration.
adam star via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 01/22/21
I love the hosts’ voices, the sound design and the 30 min length is just perfect
darthfleur via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/20/21
One of the best podcasts I’ve ever heard.
mygirlpearl via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/17/21
I listened to this podcast for a few episodes & was starting to enjoy it until the episode on Michael Jackson. I have done extensive unbiased research into his life & cases & thus episode was full of blatant inaccuracies. The very end said it all when it gave credit to the BBC,Sunday...Read full review »

Great research, scripts and charismatic narrators — very satisfying
bam526 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/24/20
A fascinating portrait of rock stars we all know, but after listening, realize we didn’t. Have binged all the episodes and can’t wait for the next ones!
jillanneUSUK via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/13/20
One of my top three discoveries of the lockdowns. Well created and always thought provoking. Easy to listen too as so well read. My only niggle is the interruptions of the ad break, but I won’t mark it down as if there were none we probably wouldn’t have the episodes to listen to. My other...Read full review »

I look forward to Thursdays mornings, love the shows, great insight to the musicians 🤘🏻🤘🏻🤘🏻🤘🏻
scraggs83 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 11/26/20
How can you tell the story of an artist without including any of their music? The story becomes a monologue with no sense of context or the character of the artist. Just wrong.
Donkeyman3 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 11/22/20
Just a regurgitation of what we already know. That’s not surprising of course. But the production - corny audio propping up banal platitudes. That’s what grates. For tabloid readers.
Rosa bug via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 11/08/20
I love the content but I just can’t stomach the narration. It’s like they’re reading a bedtime story, it’s such a shame but it makes me cringe.
toria1512 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 10/30/20
Excellent series👍 short but very detailed & punchy. Amazing narrators too👌
AllieB❤️ via Apple Podcasts · Ireland · 10/29/20
Really enjoying these stories and the writing and narration are so well done. Looking forward to more episodes...
beagle paws via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 10/12/20
I have loved all these episodes. They are beautifully written and presented- celebration and sadness. But Keith Flint - wow. Took me back to a great time. Loved The Prodigy but didn’t know the half of it. Recommended.
Malcom Allison via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 10/11/20
Well written podcast. Narrated with a voice that draws you into the story in the most charming way. LOVE this series. Captures so much within each sentence.
