June 2022 premieres kick off on Sunday, June 5 with back-to-back stories about the legendary rock band Van Halen and the everlasting legacy of its namesake Eddie Van Halen. Autopsy: The Last Hours of... "Eddie Van Halen" at 8pm ET/ 5pm PT is an intimate portrait of the guitar prodigy hailed as one of the greatest of all time. With his scorching guitar skills and unique style he rewrote the rulebook for riffs and with his signature electrifying showmanship he was the driving force behind Van Halen. Away from the spotlight Eddie was at war with himself for decades battling substance abuse. By embracing all of the excess that came with his hard won success did Eddie set into motion what would ultimately take his life? The success of the band Van Halen was stratospheric with more than 80 million records sold and more than $324 million in ticket sales on their way to change the face of rock music over a career spanning four decades. In Van Halen: Story of Their Songs on Sunday, June 5 at 9pm ET/ 6pm PT see the stories of six pivotal songs that were key turning points in the bands' long and eventful career from break out hit "Runnin' with the Devil" and changing musical direction with "Jump" to reinventing their sound in "Why Can't This Be Love?" and mainstream smashes "When It's Love" and "Can't Stop Loving You" along with the experimental and touching "Without You".

In the 1997 movie Boogie Nights Alfred Molina plays a looney nightclub owner with a bad cocaine habit in a character that was loosely based on Hollywood hotshot Eddie Nash. For decades Nash eluded authorities as the cocaine addicted king of nightclubs in Hollywood who ran drugs through his many properties in the 1970s and 1980s. Nash also had a terrifyingly violent side. In Gangsters: America's Most Evil "Eddie Nash 'King of Wonderland'" on Tuesday, June 7 at 9pm ET/ 6pm PT presents the story of the man who was atop the Hollywood drug scene and the brutality he used to enforce his reign. The hedonistic and lawless club scenes of the late 1980s along the Sunset Strip were a part of Nash's legacy and served as the perfect backdrop for the debut of the uncompromising and controversial Guns N' Roses with their forceful hit "Welcome to the Jungle" with lyrics and music video depicting the rougher side of life in LA. In Guns N' Roses: Story of Their Songs on Sunday, June 12 at 8pm ET/ 5pm PT see the stories behind six of their songs that transformed rock music including "Welcome to the Jungle", the anthemic "Paradise City", epic tender ballads "Don't Cry" and "Patience", the nine-minute masterpiece "November Rain" and the song that made them global superstars in "Sweet Child O' Mine."

The hit television series Miami Vice made its debut in the fall of 1984 as a stylish crime drama that combined the lush music and scenery of Miami with the dark and deadly reality of its crime. In 1981 there were 621 murders in Miami and hitman Jorge Rivi Ayala and other infamous "cocaine cowboys" contributed to that grim total. In Gangsters: America's Most Evil "Jorge 'Rivi' Ayala" on Tuesday, June 14 at 9pm ET/ 6pm PT see the story of the vicious cartel hitman who became the top assassin for the brutal Colombian drug lord Griselda Blanco as she infiltrated the Miami drug scene. Sunday, June 19 sees a primetime lineup of three back-to-back rock and roll stories about the rise and fall of Foreigner and Scorpions along with the stories of three songs that defined Alice Cooper. By 1978 Foreigner was the quickly becoming the biggest rock band in the world. They were jukebox heroes providing a hard rocking soundtrack to their generation and their 1983 chart topping hit "I Want to Know What Love Is" rockets the band to superstardom but was a new style for them. The battle lines are drawn over the musical direction of the band and the creative clashes between founder Mick Jones and vocalist Lou Gramm become massive divides. In Foreigner: Breaking the Band on Sunday, June 19 at 8pm ET/ 5pm PT Gramm gives his first-hand account of the whopping success of their debut album and the uneasy truces with Jones to keep the music playing. While creative differences weren't a crux for the Scorpions their Achilles heel was a high-octane lifestyle that matched their blistering sound. In Scorpions: Breaking the Band on Sunday, June 19 at 9pm ET/ 6pm PT four original members Rudolf Schenker, Herman Rarebell, Matthias Jabs and Klaus Meine give an unfiltered look at the band's five decade history that led to more than 100 million albums sold worldwide from the rush of breaking big in America to facing down the perilous unknown of lead singer Meine losing his voice and requiring high-risk surgery. The final performer of the Sunday, June 19 trifecta of rock music stories is Alice Cooper: Story of The Songs at 10pm ET/ 7pm PT spotlighting the stories behind the iconic and rebellious 1972 hit "School's Out", the groundbreaking change of direction Cooper channeled for the "Welcome to My Nightmare" single and album and the career redefining megahit love song with a twist in "Poison". With one of the most enduring and talked about careers in rock history Cooper shocked fans with his revolutionary and controversial stage shows but what was the inspiration behind three of the songs that cemented his legacy?

In 1992 Edward James Olmos starred as a Mexican American Mafia kingpin in the movie American Me a fictional account of the Mexican Mafia inside the California prison system. That same year 15-year-old Oscar Cabrera was just another kid growing up in tough rural farming town of Watsonville California. As a smart, charismatic natural born leader Cabrera sought more from life than working fields and within a few years in his early twenties he'd become the local shot caller for Nuestra Familia, the real-life violent criminal organization that grew from within the California prison system. Gangsters: America's Most Evil "'Baby Joker' Oscar Cabrera" on Tuesday, June 21 at 9pm ET/ 6pm PT presents Cabrera's story within the history of Nuestra Familia and the shocking and violent end to his ties with the organization. Where his ambition and charisma led Cabrera to a life of crime those same traits led Vince Neil to redefine what it meant to be a rockstar. In Mötley Crüe's Vince Neil: My Story* (*working title) on Sunday, June 26 at 8pm ET/ 5pm PT the Mötley Crüe frontman gives a revealing account of his journey to global stardom with never before told stories including his 45-year friendship with drummer Tommy Lee, overcoming addictions, going solo and his roller coaster ride with Mötley Crüe that led to more than 100 million albums sold. When Neil was fired from Mötley Crüe in 1992 it was rumored that Skid Row lead singer Sebastian Bach was asked to replace him but that never happened. Still, Bach had long fit the wild prototype of a rock star. An 18-year-old Bach was a formidable young talent plagued by a combination of attitude, swagger and a short fuse. After being scouted singing at a wedding Bach was made lead singer of hard rock band Skid Row. In Skid Row: Breaking the Band on Sunday, June 26 at 10pm ET/ 7pm PT original members and co-founders Rachel Bolan and Dave 'Snake' Sabo along with Bach and manager Doc McGhee give a first-hand account of how Skid Row burst onto the scene in the late 1980s setting the charts ablaze and bringing MTV metal to the masses. They also give their own take on the volatile and unpredictable Bach who in his own words recounts the wildest moments in the band's turbulent ride and what became the final straw that broke the back of Skid Row.

Known as the founder of Van Halen, the band that became synonymous with California cool, Eddie was actually of both Dutch and Indonesian heritage. His family moved to California from the Netherlands when Eddie was a child. Eddie came to America without knowing English but by the time he was 25 years old his band had sold multiple platinum albums and his innovative guitar techniques cemented him in rock and roll history. But behind his contagious smile there was a darker undercurrent that would plague Eddie throughout his life. As an extremely shy kid Eddie started drinking alcohol at just 12 years old to calm his nerves after seeing his father drink to calm himself and for the next four decades Eddie wrestled with addiction issues. Often relying on alcohol and other substances to maintain his creativity Eddie would spend many years in and out of rehab. He was a workaholic often pushing his body to the limits in order to perform while secretly battling illness. Eddie died at the age of 65 from cancer but if caught early Eddie's disease had reasonable survival rates so what exactly happened?

In 1970s and 1980s Hollywood Eddie Nash was a nightclub impresario with properties across Southern California using the profits from drug trafficking to build a massive fortune. Nash owned dozens of restaurants and clubs which became the locations where he moved large quantities of marijuana, cocaine and heroin. Nash wasn't just the supplier he was also a drug addict whose lust for high stakes action led him to extreme violence to ensure his empire wouldn't fall. Nash built relationships with Hollywood and mafia types to fill his nightclubs with the glitz, glam and street muscle of the era. But his reckless drug addictions made him vulnerable and it wasn't long before others took notice. After being robbed of nearly a million dollars worth of jewelry, cash and drugs Nash took it personally and sent a message to the streets. The Wonderland Murders in 1981 were allegedly masterminded by Nash and carried out on the people who allegedly robbed him.

Gangsters: America's Most Evil "Jorge 'Rivi' Ayala" premieres on Tuesday, June 14 at 9pm ET/ 6pm PT. The party scenes of the 1970s and 1980s are fondly remembered for big hair, wild fashion and epic music. Another popular staple of the time that kept the parties rolling was cocaine. With its sunny beaches by day and disco dancing at night Miami quickly became the epicenter of the fun and glamour associated with the addictive powder. Lurking beneath the party scene was a violent drug war to keep the cocaine circulating. In 1979 Miami received a disturbing wake up call to this sensational violence when the Dadeland Mall shooting rocked residents after organized crime members carried out a hit in broad daylight in one of the boldest acts of violence during Florida's war on drugs. Jorge 'Rivi' Ayala and an accomplice carried out the Dadeland Mall shooting as a hit on rival drug dealers and became sinister lore for the "cocaine cowboy" brand of drug warfare. Ayala was carrying out orders from none other than the Godmother of the Medellín Cartel Griselda Blanco as he'd become her top assassin. Ayala spent a life in crime going from stealing cars as a teenager to carrying out killings for half a million dollars each as a high-ranking hitman. With two loving and hard working parents focused on raising Ayala when and where did his promising path turn to crime and how did he end up as one of the most notorious hitmen of all time?

Foreigner: Breaking the Band premieres on Tuesday, June 19 at 8pm ET/ 5pm PT. Formed in New York in 1976 by musical powerhouse Mick Jones Foreigner would become one of the most successful groups of all time as Lou Gramm's incredible vocals and unique talents helped the band to sell more than 80 million albums. By the mid-1980s their blend of hard rock and atmospheric ballads were a stadium filling success all over the world but behind the scenes their move towards synth-led soft rock most famously the chart topping global hit "I Want to Know What Love Is" had started to create fault lines between musical architect Jones and frontman Gramm. As resentment grew the once tight knit songwriting partnership started to fall apart and when Gramm embarked on a successful solo career. In May 1990 Gramm leaves acrimoniously fracturing the musical heart of the band. It seemed like they would never get back together but music is a powerful force. Helping to tell the Foreigner story is former bassist Rick Wills and current lead singer Kelly Hansen while Gramm in his own words discusses the perfectionist pressure of Jones, the impact of band lineup changes and the series of uneasy truces between him and Jones throughout the years.

After establishing themselves as one of the iconic heavy metal acts of the 1980s the band's attention turned to geopolitics and Scorpions debuted their massively successful single "Winds of Change" hit just as the Cold War was coming to an end. But as is so often the case when a rock band realizes its ambitions trouble is never far away. As Scorpions members tell it their American dream turned into a heavy metal nightmare with outrageous excess, the weight of expectation for more album sales, disputes over money and power-struggles within the band taking their toll after decades of chart topping and arena filling success.
