Publisher Comments:

It's all slipping away from Roc Molotov - his band, his girlfriend, and worst of all, his ability to play the game demanded by the star-making machinery of the music business. When the best record he's ever made is about to pass unnoticed, his oldest friend and manager, Uncle Strange, concocts the perfect scheme. Roc will fake his death, on MTV, in front of millions of viewers, assuring massive success on his latest project and the ability to create a body of "posthumous" songs to feed the grieving fans and satisfy his still-active artistic imagination. The plan works to perfection, but the ever-restless Roc finds that being dead has its limitations in this novel that's sex, death, and rock n' roll, played in a satirical key.
