I was listening to the song "Ghost Town" by Adam Lambert one of these days and suddenly it came to my mind: is Adam telling us Roland's story in the lyrics?
Here are some evidences:
"Died last night in my dreams" - maybe a reference to Roland dreams about Jake.
"I tried to believe
In God and James Dean" - maybe a reference to Eddie Dean. If I'm not wrong, Eddie Dean and James Dean are look-alikes.
"Walked into the flames
Called out your name
But there was no answer" - maybe a reference to Susan Delgado.
"All the machines
Had been disconnected" - maybe a reference to the Dogans, the robots, portals and tecnology that still existis in Mid-World.
"Time was thrown at the wind
And all of my friends
Had been disaffected" - a clear definition of Roland's quest to the Tower.
"Now, I'm searching for trust
In a city of rust
A city of vampires" - maybe a reference to the Calla plot, including Callahan story with the vampires in New York.
"There's no one left in the world
Don't give a damn if I go
Down, down, down
I got a voice in my head that keeps singing
Oh, my heart is a ghost town" - a clear description of Mid-World, the Gunslingers and how everyone Roland ever cared about ended up dead (this is why his heart would be a ghost town).
Let me know what you guys think of it.
Long days and pleasant nights.
