Bauhaus and Love and Rockets bassist David J is the next rock star to pen his memoirs – Who Killed Mister Moonlight?: Bauhaus, Black Magick, and Benediction is due out on October 15, 2014:
Beginning with the creation of Bauhaus’s seminal debut hit ‘Bela Lugosi’s Dead’, David J. Haskins offers a no-holds-barred account of his band’s rapid rise to fame and glory in the late 70s, their sudden dissolution in the 80s, and their subsequent – and often strained – reunions. In between, he explores his work as a solo performer, and with acclaimed trio Love and Rockets – culminating in the devastating fire that ripped through the sessions for their 1996 album Sweet F.A. He also delves deep into his exploration of the occult, drawing together a diverse cast of supporting characters, including William S. Burroughs, Alan Moore, Genesis P. Orridge, and Rick Rubin. Bristling with power and passion, music and magic, Who Killed Mister Moonlight? is a rock’n’roll memoir like no other.
