Slide Show: Music's Biggest Train Wrecks

The rock star life is not known to be one of taste and self-restraint. That having been said, some rock stars (and pop stars, too) descend further into the depths than even their fellow musicians, and when you stand out as a disaster in such a field, it deserves recognition.

In honor of Courtney Love's birthday Thursday, here are some of the biggest train wrecks in the world of rock and pop. Accidental or carefully orchestrated, it doesn't matter. We like to stop and stare anyway. Click here for the slideshow.

KEEP THE HOUSTON PRESS FREE... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
