Soul MusicDiscworld # 16

Death gets preoccupied with the meaning of existence at the same time a living force of music enters Discworld and “Music with Rocks In It” is born. Death’s “granddaughter” discovers who her grandfather is when she suddenly inherits his job. Quite a lot for a young teen to take on, but Susan is up to the challenge especially with some help from Binky and the Death of Rats (yes, it’s a rat in a black cloak with scythe). Lots of fun references to early rock legends like Buddy Holly, Jerry Lee Lewis, The Rolling Stones etc., as well as early rock songs. Also, shows how rock and roll changed the culture and everyday life of it’s fans in of course an exaggerated way
