In this episode we dig deep into the Occult's dark ties within music. From the stories of selling their souls to Satan in the fashion of blues legend Robert Johnson to Aleister Crowley's influence from his religion and philosophy of Thelema into the music of such bands as Led Zeppelin and Black Sabbath.
We go in depth about Crowley's "magick" and those obsessed with the idea. We discuss Jimmy Page and his obsession with the dark side and how it influenced the music and stigma behind Led Zeppelin, the stories behind how Geezer Butler and Ozzy Osborne wrote the first 3 Black Sabbath albums, Santana and his demons he speaks to in his dreams, and David Bowie's drug fueled occult obsession that also lead to some fantastic music, even some he doesn't recall ever writing or recording.
