The History Mix: Things Fall Apart
When rock bands destroy themselves on record, it's usually a group effort. The Beatles bickered like babies on Let It Be. The Eagles slouched into the sunset on The Long Run. The Police drove each other crazy making Synchronicity. Some musical self-immolations, however, are the result of one band member's driven, monomaniacal fixation on Finishing The Project At Any Cost. Elvis Costello did it to the Attractions on Blood And Chocolate, and David Lowery did it to Camper Van Beethoven on Key Lime Pie.
