Rock & Roll may only be a few generations old, but in those few short decades of existence, rock music has arguably changed the world like no other art form has. It's altered music, sure, but it's also altered occult history. In the past sixty years, rock music has produced stories of ghostly visits, tales of demonic encounters, lists of curse victims, and many more. Matthew L. Swayne, author of Haunted Rock & Roll, explains why tales surrounding Jim Morrison, Kurt Cobain, and other famous, deceased rock stars continue to abound—and why rock remains so haunted.

If asked about which type of location tends to be the most haunted, most people would respond with cemeteries, battlefields, or old houses at the top of the list. But what about campuses of America's colleges and universities? Surely we've all heard a story or two from a local campus legend. But why are these institutions of higher learning truly institutions of haunted learning as well? Matthew L. Swayne, author of America's Haunted Universities, provides a few potential explanations for these haunted phenomena.
