Jim Morrison of the Doors
He had amazing lyrical ability and sadly died of a heroin overdose. He was one of the most famous people from the 27 club, including Curt Kobain.R.I.P. all dead musicians.
Well he actually isn't dead... He's alive at a farm in Oregon where he raises horses obviously
Stupid Pam and drugs. Then he would be alive. - Music_Lover123V 1 Comment
Jeff wrote some of the best riffs in metal history, and is an inspiration and influence to millions. Reign in peace!
Man Jeff's recent passing was pretty sad. - Oliwally
He was an amazing musician very sadV 2 Comments
An awesome voice. Brian Connolly is the best member of The Sweet.
The only one listed who pioneered a genre and gave birth to two others. In 50 years he may be the most influential to musicians than any other listed.
He is the one who shows us the right way and what human really is. He is a philosopher, take a look of his songs. What the hell is wrong with you guys? What the hell Tupac is doing on the list? - Sverre
My favourite musician. So sad. Rip Chuck. - OliwallyV 3 Comments
Paul grey was and is an inspiration, he will be deeply missed and remembered for many years to come. He was a good piece of the backbone of slipknot and from what I've heard an amazing friend and band
Mate. He lives on in the music and in the hearts of the fans.R.I.P to the coolest guy in a pig mask to ever play drums.
Seriously? How is paul not on the list? He was one of the best musicians ever. I do not know how he is not on the list.
Not only was he a great bassist, he was also a great person. - NikBrusk
1 album, no artist that great should only get the chance for a single album. And yet the quality on that album - that is what makes it the saddest, he could have done so much more with his life. His death was such a throw away moment too, swum into the river and then a few minutes later he was gone - not a death worthy of this brilliant musician, no depression, no struggle, no point to it. Just another sad accident.
The best vocalist ever, cut down in his prime. So so sad! - dxfifa
R.I. P Dio he was one of the best vocalists ever and invented the heavy metal devil horns we miss you Dio rock on m/
How is he not in the top ten?!?! One of the greatest vocalists ever!V 3 Comments
I will never forget hearing about his death! I was a junior in High School and I heard Howard Stern announce his death on WC radio from Hartford, CT. to my H.S. in Somers Ct.V 1 Comment
Cause nobody has the greatest hits like Mama Cass especially her hit song make your own kind of sandwich and of course California dreaming with her group the Mamas and the Papas.
She died of a heart attack, not from choking.
She appeared in Scooby-Doo before her death. - playstationfan66
Love, love will tear us apart again, and it did
Such a depressing life, I bet he's looking down down on new order and happy to see how far they got.V 1 Comment
Just watch the music video for hurt. Tragic...
Johnny cash was a great man but he was extremely old when he died so I didn't find it that sad.
How can you say that I mean Johnny cash is known as the man in black in black and he has a great talented family him, June, and his daugter Rosanne Cash.V 1 Comment
After his death the leppard's never sound good as it was with him.
Yeah definitely Leppard were worse without him. Vivian Campbell has nothing on him. I mean he's a good guitarist and all, but not as good as The Riffmaster
Original guitarist from RHCP got beat by heroin - Chickenlegs
Formed the greatest band of all time!
If he was dead a year later, he would join the group of 27
Why conldn't he survive just 1 year?
He is one of the greatest greatest of that time.
Saddest death I've ever heard and right at the start of his stardom can't believe he's gone such a brilliant mind
He was one of the greatest country music stars ever.
