Oksanen, Atte (2012) Addiction and Rehabilitation in Autobiographical Books by Rock Artists, 1974 – 2010.

Drug & Alcohol Review (early view, article first published online: 27 May 2012,doi:10.1111/j.1465-3362.2012.00474.x)

A recent study shows that North American and European rock and pop stars have significantly higher mortality than demographically matched populations, and their main causes of death have often been related to the use of alcohol and drugs [1]. The fall of addicted stars is closely monitored in the current media culture [2–3]. The deaths of Amy Winehouse and Whitney Houston are two of the most recent cases of premature musician mortality.
