61 Richard Wright Richard Wright Richard William "Rick" Wright was an English musician, composer, singer and songwriter. He was the main keyboardist and a backup vocalist for the psychedelic and progressive English rock band, Pink Floyd .

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.

62 Christina Grimmie Christina Grimmie Christina Victoria Grimmie (March 12th 1994 - June 10th 2016), known on YouTube as zeldaxlove64, was an American singer-songwriter known for participating in The Voice and for her covers of hit songs by contemporary pop musicians .

0.1%?! Come on, Team Grimmie, there's over 3 million of you subscribed to her channel and a few million more not subscribed but fans of her music. we can do better than place 53! Christina deserves better.

It was a sad day in America. RIP

She was too young and talented.She doesn't deserve this.

63 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...

64 Chris Cornell Chris Cornell Chris Cornell was an American rock musician and singer-songwriter, best known as the lead vocalist, primary songwriter and rhythm guitarist for Seattle rock band Soundgarden and as former lead vocalist and songwriter for the supergroup Audioslave. He died on May 17, 2017.

He died too soon :'(

I guess it's too early for him to be higher on this list being that he died recently, but I expect him to be number 1 in time, his voice and talent is unmatched. Certainly the best singer in the history of rock. So sad to see you go brother. No one sings like you anymore... :(

66 Joe Strummer Joe Strummer John Graham Mellor, known by his stage name Joe Strummer, was a British musician, singer, actor and songwriter who was the co-founder, lyricist, rhythm guitarist and lead vocalist of the Clash.
67 Syd Barret

Syd Barrett would be my first choice m. Not to make an album but to let him relive a life he never got to live. Everyone else's on here died young but he died old and had not had a life for 40 years. No wife. No children. No love interest. No music. Nothing but a house, sister and ironically a bike.

Syd was a genius and should be higher on this list.

Actually his name is Syd Barrett. - Music_Lover123

68 Ronnie Van Zant Ronnie Van Zant Ronald Wayne "Ronnie" Van Zant was an American lead vocalist, primary lyricist, and a founding member of the Southern rock band Lynyrd Skynyrd.

A truly gifted southern poet. The loss of Ronnie and Skynyrd after only 4 years of professional recording is a huge blow to music. Can't forget to mention the brilliant Steve Gaines who also died in the crash.

69 Taiji Sawada
70 Jerry Garcia Jerry Garcia Jerome 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.
71 Warren Zevon Warren Zevon

One of the greatest songwriters of his time.

Most fabulous keyboard artist. died way before his time. Many singers covered his songs like "Hasten Down the Wind". He recorded his last cd while he was dying from lung cancer, surrounded by a lot of musician friends.

72 Jeff Heely
73 Hillel Slovak Hillel Slovak

Although his death lead to the rise of my favourite ever guitarist - John Frusciante - this guy would have just got better and better, and become a legend in his own right, such a loss to the world. RIP Hilel

He was the beginning of one of the best bands I've ever heard. If he was still alive, the chilis would bring funk to the 21st century.

74 Frank Sinatra Frank Sinatra Francis Albert "Frank" Sinatra was an American singer, actor, and producer who was one of the most popular and influential musical artists of the 20th century.

I Love his music

Who was better

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

ARE you kidding me. The MASTER or MUSIC, simply put. I wish I could have seen you live! Everybody only covers your music, I know that real thing had to be SOMETHING SPECIAL. 200 years, and you are still the best!

He was a prodigy and genius, it would be cool if he came back hundreds of yrs after hiscdeath.

78 Peter Steele Peter Steele Petrus Thomas Ratajczyk, better known by his stage name Peter Steele, was the lead singer, bassist and composer for the gothic metal band Type O Negative.

One of a kind, No other person in the music industry has come close to replicating the emotion and atmosphere of his music.

79 George Michael George Michael Georgios Kyriacos Panayiotou, known professionally by his stage name George Michael, was an English singer, songwriter, and record producer.
