- What Killed Albert Goldman: A Literary X-File, by Victor Bockris (online link now gone)
Goldman died in 1994, hailed by many as a brilliant writer and biographer, but despised by people in the rock industry and by rock fans for his biographies of Elvis Presley and John Lennon.
Bockris discusses Goldman's death and its contributing factors. This final paragraph is particularly controversial: "Furthermore, as far as I am concerned, it is a matter of record that he made a contribution to writing, and rock writing in particular, that is greater than any other rock writer's. That he should be hated by the rock establishment, who rely primarily on writers for their existence, seems to me, to say the least, a very grim commentary on America's literary history".
