Rock music stars and jail time blend together like weed and whiskey, bars and stripes and hookers and cocaine. Well no wonder that many of our favorite musical heroes actually ended up in trouble with the law that leads to jail. This article in honor of the forever famous debate of our rock stars being ‘criminal minded ‘(well though they are criminal of stealing our hearts)?
The most famous example is of one & only legendary Ike Turner. He was accused of being beating brutally his wife, Tina Turner. Plus also got involved in drug charges and died due to cocaine overdose in the year 2007.
