The Top Ten

1
Freddie Mercury
Love you, Freddie, your legend lives on!

If only you'd stuck around long enough to give us Hair, Nose and Teeth, the world would be a better place. Miss you.
I heard 'Under Pressure' on the radio today and was in tears. Made me remember just how fantastic he was. Really miss you Freddie!
Greatest vocalist and entertainer of all time. I wish I was old enough to have experienced queen live.

2Michael Jackson
I suppose he is missed by pop culture adherents, but musically his personal contributions don't equal 1/10th of John Lennon's.
This death only happened 2 years ago and he's the King of Pop, so of course he's going to be missed the most.
He will be missed by everyone.

3Ronnie James Dio
He was one of the greatest singers in the world and had such an amazing voice.R.I.P. You will be missed!

4Dimebag Darell
Either dimebag darell or John Lennon should be #1. They were both shot and killed by crazy people and it is just so horrible. Lennon was killed near his apartment, but Dimebag was shot and killed on stage while performing.

5Whitney Houston
Amazing singer, amazing appearance. Went away way too fast. :(

6Bon Scott (AC/DC)
Ride On, Bon, and Rock In Peace!

7Kurt Cobain
You were the best Alternative Rocker, a true genius. You were unique, you were always yourself and will never be forgotten.R.I. P Kurt.
Kurt cobain was the influence that lead me to wright music
You rock Kurt neva be 1 like u!
[Newest]Should be number 1. End of story.

8Cliff Burton

9Tupac
Tupac was one of the greatest lyricists of all time and rap. Tupac was so missed that years later he has released more posthumous albums then anyone in the game. The words that he spread were of peace and equality in the world and especially in the ghetto. His lyrics touched the hearts of more youth than even Eminem and that's saying a lot. Since his death many M.C. S have tried to copy his style and swagger but no one can compare or replace him as a legend or a martyr of the rap game. Long story short he will be missed on and on for generations to come for his outspoken preachings of equality of race, sex and humanity.R.I.P. tupac lives on.

10Gary Moore

The Contenders

11Randy Rhoads
One of the greatest guitarists that ever lived. Enough said.

12Duane Allman

13Stevie Ray Vaughan
Had so much potential an died too early.

14Layne Staley
The loss of Layne Staley was a tragedy, his musical talents and his commitment to honesty in the music created by AIC will live on forever in his true fans. RIP Layne Thomas Staley.
RI. P Layne... Miss ya
This is hard to decide because nearly all the "fathers" of what music is today are dead. But Layne Staley had a voice and style that was unheard of at the time. He knew how to use his voice as an instrument. For me number 2 is MCA. He was an inspiration musicly and personaly

15Jimi Hendrix

16Aaliyah
She was a quadruple threat she had it all beauty kindness singer actress model and a dancer it sucks that she went far before her time but what can you even say, still shocked till this day 12 years later, well I love you Aaliyah and we haven't forgotten about you rest in paradise angel. <3 if anyone deserves it its you.
Gone too soon. WE LOVE YOU AALIYAH. Your in a better place now.

17Jon Lord

18Eazy E

19John Lennon
I'm confused as to how John isn't number 1. He was not only the founding member of the greatest band of all time, but he was also an ambassador for peace. John Lennon wanted love. And in return he was killed. I don't know why these things have to happen, but let it be known that John Lennon is forever missed. He will always be the best and I love him more than words can say.
How is John Lennon not #1?
John is by far #1 on tis, or any similar list.
In 500 years, the only names on this list that will be remembered will be John Lennon and Jimi Hendrix.

20Jimmy The Rev Sullivan
One of the greatest musicians of all time... Elite drummer, great pianist, played guitar, bass, and every other instrument necessary to a rock band. Not to mention an amazing voice to go with everything. R.I.P. Rev
