63Ritchie Valens

I honestly think Ritchie should be higher on this list. He was only 17 when he died he could have the chance to change the history of music and the sad part is his fifth was determine by the flip of a coin

Ritchieee what have you done to him he was too young and too scared of planes and his nightmare came true. Why?

64Izumi Sakai

very great woman, leader of japanese band zard and she is too young to go away - ronluna

65Karen CarpenterKaren Anne Carpenter was an American singer and drummer. She and her brother, Richard Carpenter, formed the 1970s duo Carpenters.

Karen's death is too heart breaking cause when I hear her music it makes me cry especially her Christmas music is way too sad cause why did she do it to herself of not eating and its just too heart breaking.

One of the most underrated artists ever

69Duane AllmanHoward Duane Allman was an American guitarist, session musician, and co-founder and leader of the Allman Brothers Band until his death in a motorcycle crash in 1971, when he was 24 years old.

I cry a little inside knowing how he would have gotten even better at guitar had he not crashed his motorcycle into that truck.R.I.P. skydog.

70Ingo Schwichtenberg

The best drummer ever... So sad that he died, he had a very hard end of life... I'd really like to see he play live, but that's not possible anymore :'(. So underrated drummer. Ingo Fly Free.

I wish he was still around to see how well helloween is doing, he was a good drummer. - darknesswolf4736

71Wolfgang Amadeus MozartWolfgang Amadeus Mozart, baptised as Johannes Chrysostomus Wolfgangus Theophilus Mozart, was a prolific and influential composer of the Classical era, born in Salzburg.

The most talented musician of all time, who died broke and worthless.

It's the saddest death because he was too young to get sick and die he could've had more hits ever as much as Beethoven and Yo Yo Ma.

75Brad DelpBradley Edward "Brad" Delp was an American musician, best known as the lead vocalist of the rock bands Boston and RTZ.

One of the greatest lead singers in the history of rock music. He could sing anything & everything. His was one only rivaled by Freddie Mercury & Steve Perry. How can you insult music like this?!

76Chi Cheng (Deftones)

Chi suffered for 5 years being in a tragic car accident in 2008 which landed him in a coma. He eventually woke up, and we put all our hope that Chi would make it back home and recover safely, which he did for a little while. Then, completely out of nowhere, he dies. He died a very under appreciated rock/metal bassist. We miss you Chi.

78Judee Sill
79Jerry GarciaJerome John "Jerry" Garcia was an American musician best known for his lead guitar work, singing and songwriting with the band the Grateful Dead, which came to prominence during the counterculture era in the 1960s.
