Plot Synopsis

MUSIC'S GREATEST MYSTERIES is a half-hour documentary series that explores infamous myths and larger-than-life personalities that have come to define the music industry throughout the decades, spanning a wide variety of eras and genres -- from hip hop and rockabilly, to country, grunge, and everything in-between. Separating fact from fiction, this series presents a fresh perspective on stories both well known and slightly more obscure, unearthing hidden gems and long-forgotten lore with the help of music icons and noted experts. Blending commentary with rare archive footage, MUSIC'S GREATEST MYSTERIES tries to answer the whys and hows of each new topic until the truth is revealed. Not only are the themes meshed in history, but so are the interview locations. Legendary music venues such as The Bluebird Cafe in Nashville and Antone's in Austin are woven into the fabric of these stories. Season 1 features these six episodes:

"Trigger, Cursed and Fate" (Sunday, November 15): The series premiere investigates: the Beach Boys' Dennis Wilson and his relationship with serial killer Charlie Manson, seeking to answer if Wilson angered Manson during the summer of 1968; the second story looks at Post Malone's infatuation with the occult and looks at the possibility that he may be cursed by the world's most haunted object; and lastly, the show examines whether or not a failed audition saved Faith Hill's life at the start of her career.

"CIA, Impersonator and Insult"(Sunday, November 22): Did the CIA kill Bob Marley? Is a doppelganger impersonating the real Avril Lavigne? What was the meaning behind Charlie Rich's insult of John Denver?

"Death, Rivalry and Warnings" (Sunday, November 29): What happened to Gram Parsons' body after he died? Did Prince and Michael Jackson really hate each other? What's the real story behind "Parental Advisory" warning labels?

"Vicious, Kissed and Undercover" (Sunday, December 6): Did Sid Vicious' mother play a part in his death? Is KISS a band or a brand? Is Jamie Hewlett of the Gorillaz really Banksy?

"Satanic, Immortal and Narc" (Sunday, December 13): What's the satanic truth behind playing records backwards? Does Aerosmith have nine lives? Was Elvis secretly a NARC for the Nixon administration?

"Desperate, Dissed and Goddess" (Sunday, December 20): Were the rights to "Friends in Low Places" sold to settle a bar tab? Was "Sweet Home Alabama" the first diss track, meaning a song to attack another artist? What explains the mysteries that surround Stevie Nicks?
