43 Stevie Ray Vaughn

He was so great. And he was only 35 when he died, which was too early. He had a great voice, great music, and played guitar very well. He will definitely be missed.

I really wish he was still here. He had potential to do so much. - greatesttop10s

This man was beauty in music incarnate and it was one of the greatest tragedies of music when he unfairly passed away at such a young age. He had a voice that could quieten a screaming baby in awe and he should still be singing today.

Buckley was the best of the best even made jimmy page cry.

Jeff buckley could hit impossible notes bring him back!

Jeff should be n*1 biggest lost on music history!

53 Sid Vicious Sid Vicious John Beverly, born John Simon Ritchie, later named Sid Vicious, was an English musician, most famous as the bass guitarist of the influential punk rock band the Sex Pistols, and notorious for his arrest for the alleged murder of his girlfriend, Nancy Spungen.

Sid was the best in punk music ever he could not play bass but his image alone was punk if their was more bands like the vicious white kids the sex pistols and nirvana music would be amazing but sid would need to be alive to keep it REAL and his singing was funny and entertaining but great

I think Sid and Johnny Rotten would tear it up together if he was still alive...

54 Selena Quintanilla-Pérez Selena Quintanilla-Pérez Selena Quintanilla-Pérez was an American singer, songwriter, spokesperson, actress, and fashion designer.

Selena is a true legend in the world of music. What Elvis did for rock, and what Bob Marley did for raegge, is basically what Selena did for Tejano music - she popularized it on both a national and a global level. Among her many achievements is being the only female musical artist to ever have 5 albums on the charts simultaneously, being the first Tejano artist to win a Grammy or have a record certified ""Gold", and being the first Latin artist to have an album debut at number 1. Selena displayed the humility, class and grace of a true artist, both onstage and off, and a genuine love and appreciation for her fans. She was also very community-oriented, working with shelters for victims of domestic violence, going to schools to talk to kids about staying off drugs and the importance of an education, and sometimes donating the money she made from a show to various charities. She inspired millions, and continues to do so in both a professional and a personal sense.

Yet another artist that died while entering her prime. She will never see the success of her crossover album - FlakyCuddles43

Amazing and beautiful person. Never forgot where she came from.

Selena is Timeless! Her voice, her style, her moves. All sounds fresh today as the day it was recorded. Selena continues to inspire and pick up new fans thanks to her timeless talents and the well made movie on her life starring Jennifer Lopez. Selena will live on now and forever!

A Pink Floyd album doesn't sound the same without this guy. Maybe we could get a final floyd album with the entire line-up.

My most favorite band in the world and that is partly 1/4 thanks to Rick! I love Pink Floyd, Rick's work on the keys, so haunting, that B minor, Great Gig, Animals, Saucer, Atom Heart, the list you already know. I miss you RICK, sail the ENDLESS RIVER!

Keyboardist of Pink Floyd. It's not Pink Floyd without him.

Pink Floyd reunion if you bring back Syd... yay - Lucretia
