When holly, the big bopper, and richie valens died on the same plane, musicians started taking the bus. - queen11
It would have been amazing to see what would have happen had he lived. What he left behind are all masterpieces.
I had no idea so many musicans were killed in plane crashes. This is a sad list. - RockFashionistaV2 Comments
He was the absolute love of my life at that time. His music was phenomenal! I was 13 then and I still have my posters that covered my bedroom walls then covering my laundry room now. My husband wouldn't let me put them in our room! Laugh out loud. He seemed to be just as beautiful on the inside as he most certainly was on the outside! I can only imagine the music that he never got to make! I will never stop being a fan and will die an old lady with randy rhoads posters on my walls somewhere! RIP. You will never be forgotten!
Great guitarist and he just shredded. I was not born at the time but I did listen to many of his solos. What a beast! He was great. I really respected and admired the way he played, both him and van halen. RIP
Randy Rhoads is one of the greatest guitar players of all time and a lot more people would have heard of him if he didn't die so youngV1 Comment
I was born after the crash, I wish I could have seen him live! RIP
I wish I could vote for everyone, especially the members of Lynyrd Skynyrd
(this is how you spell it)
Ronnie's writing & his music in general are standing the test of time. Who would have thought, well, me, that they would be as big as they still are now. Gary, Johnny, Rickey and the guys are doing Ronnie, Steve & Cassie proud.
What a loss, Lynyrd Skynyrd could've made a lot more kick ass stuff if it weren't for this accident.
no one on this list touch ronnie van zant. my favorite singer. oh n who the hell is aaliyah? - sgilb5
i will miss her... i always watching Romeo must die... Aaliyah and Jet li... she was my favorite singer... she died at very young age... i idolized her very much... Aaliyah i will surely miss you... - Valz
This is one of the saddest death in the music business. Aaliyah was such a nice, sweet and special girl. She was taken away from us too soon. Like her song says "I Miss You".
The only one on this list I actually listen to.
Rest in paradise angel. We love you Aaliyah.V3 Comments
WOW! This guy could light up a stage! - mdp1970
I'm a 16 year old girl and I am OBSESSED with Otis Redding. I've been sing and danceing along to his songs since I was 3 years old. hands down besting singer in the world
A legend , that died way to young.
Underrated He could sing!
Ritchie is simply awesome! Try to watching "la bamba" movie, then you'll see how soon he stopped making good music =(V1 Comment
One of the best songwriters in modern music. Whether beautifully simplistic love songs (Time in a Bottle, Lover's Cross, etc), or hilarious quasi-novelty (Bad, Bad Leroy Brown, Workin' at the Car Wash Blues).
I just love his all songs and for me, he is the no.1
Very artistic & wonderful songwriter, life lost way too soon
As well as being a recognized musician of note, he was a highly regarded composer.
Her music touches my soul! There has never been another voice like hers since she's been gone. The world lost a true artist.
Died in the same plane crash that claimed Otis Redding. Bar-Kays' trumpeteer Ben Cauley was the only survivor (The other surviving group member, James Alexander, was on another plane)
R.I.P Jenni and the others that were with her on the fatal flight you didn't deserve it - ItsDaWorldOfSNuGGLEZ
