Mitchell Fink, "Last Days of Dead Celebrities"

This afternoon on my KMOX show, Mitchell Fink told some great stories from his book, "The Last Days of Dead Celebrities."

We talked about Warren Zevon going public with his terminal illness and Arthur Ashe trying to keep his AIDS diagnosis secret, the last week of John Ritter's life as seen through the eyes of his close friend Henry Winkler, Tupac Shakur foreshadowing his own death in his music, Lyle Alzado going to his grave believing that steroids had caused his brain cancer, and why John Lennon didn't sleep with Yoko Ono on the last night of his life.

Listen to the conversation here.
