Top Ten Most Missed MusiciansThe most missed musicians. Great musicians that died. Who do you miss the most?
One of the best rock singers of all time. Wish he lived longer as he was very influential with an amazing vocal range and Queen had a large variety of rock music.
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.
He will always be missed. His music will live forever, until the world ends. There will never be another King of Pop like him. Nothing will ever replace him as he was born in the golden era, which no longer exists today. Whenever I think about him I feel sad. His songs "you are not alone" and "best of joy" always make me cry. On his death, nearly the whole world cried and shouted "why?" But we have to remember what Jacko taught us: "tell em that is human nature"
He wasn't just the greatest musician, he wasn't just the greatest dancer on the planet, but he was a very kind, loving, caring, entertaining, dashing, decent, romantic personality - who loved every one. The Thriller album will be up there, on top, for centuries.
RIP King of Pop (1958-2009)
One of the best singers and songwriters and live performers of all time, I miss his music and wish I could of seen him live. Shame how terrible his last years were. I love the messages he spread too.
Everyone know that Michael Jackson is the most famous singer..dancer...etc of all time...he should be on number 1
Actually... He is on number 1 but there are some who keep on critising him...losers!
I suppose he is missed by pop culture adherents, but musically his personal contributions don't equal 1/10th of John Lennon's.
He was one of the greatest singers in the world and had such an amazing voice.R.I.P. You will be missed!
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.
One of the best rock singers and songwriters of all time for sure, and the superior AC/DC singer. Any album with him on it you know is going to be good.
Cliff Burton was the most gifted and most talented person in the entire world and he will forever be my favorite bass player and one of my favorite musicians ever! Cliff Burton was a virtuoso of a bass player. R.I.P. clifford Lee Burton (1962-1986) You will be missed forever.
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 led me to write music.
Should be number 1. End of story.
Courtney killed him.
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.
Should be like 7 he died at 25 in an airplane accident dose anyone notice that the greatest musicians, actors, athletes die in plane crashes? He should be higher because he was a success in only 2 years! I love him for how amazingly he plays because he is one of a kind R.I.P Randy Rhoads 1956-1982
One of the greatest guitarists that ever lived. Enough said.
Beautiful voice, helped to get people of color's music on the radio and got it mainstream back when radio stations were disgusting and racist and didn't play their music. Great performer.
One of the most talented and creative rock songwriters of all time, definitely my favorite member of The Beatles. I love his solo career compositions as well and messages he spread.
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 he on 24th? What the hell? I don't even know all of the above, and how is a child rapist who took Paul McCartney his discography away on #2? Can we please just swap them?
John Lennon should be first. His music was brutally honest, lush, profound ad gorgeous. He was an activist and one of the best humans to ever walk this earth. he is missed every single day!
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.
So beautiful and sweet
Had so much potential and died too early.
Died too young, he was one of the best guitarists of all time with many beautiful songs such as "Purple Haze". Skilled and creative.
Jimi...Is the greatest! Love him...Miss him...Without him the world of music would be horrific pop & country...He always makes me smile...
I miss Layne everyday...For someone I've never even met his powerful & emotional voice touched me personally...Wish he was still here making music, art and whatever else he loved...Such a tragic loss...There is nobody like him and never will be...
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
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.
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
One of the most amazing female rappers. Sadly, she was taken away before her first solo career could begin.
