His doctor got a fine, it kinda his fault, kinda Michael's. I love his songs, ecspecially I Can't Stop Loving You' 'Man In the Mirror' and 'Earth Song'

2 Kurt Cobain Kurt Cobain Kurt Cobain was born February 20, 1967, in Aberdeen, Washington. In 1988, he started the grunge band Nirvana. He was a talented yet troubled grunge performer. Kurt Cobain became a rock legend in the 1990s with his band. He committed suicide at his Seattle home in 1994.

Kurt, you're missed, man :( I don't care about those who say that Nirvana is overrated. You know what? Isn't Metallica overrated too? They really have only 2-3 good songs and people think they're the best metal band that has ever existed. On the other hand, Nirvana was one of the most unique and dynamic things to ever happen in the history of music. Kurt Cobain revolutioned the rock scene, and you know why? Even though Nirvana's instrumentals are simple, not overly complicated or complex, he succeeded to change the world and be the spokesman of an entire generation through the emotion he put in his music, despite the simple composition. He gave us a clear insight into the most primal and honest emotions a human goes through during life: anger, sadness, intensity, melancholy, depression, etc. And he expressed them in such a raw, sincere manner, you could hear it in his voice. He is also one of the best male voices in rock history because his voice was simply unique: sometimes mellow ...more

Just sad, a musical genius with so much potential, driven to suicide. Truly a tragedy for music. Aside from Michael and Tupac and Whitney, Kurt Cobain left a mark on grunge music and the world itself.

She was a very loving mother to both Princes William & Harry, and never got to see the day William got married (she would have loved Kate Middleton, her daughter-in-law).

She should have been able to see her boys turn into wonderful men, meet kate, attend williams wedding and harrys when his time comes. Also being a grandmother to george who she would have adored very much

Although his mainstream career spanned only four years, he is widely regarded as one of the most influential electric guitarists in the history of popular music, and one of the most celebrated ...read more.

Popular music today would have been dramatically different had he lived and continued. I was torn between voting for Jim, Jimi, or Janis. All were members of the "27 club" and their deaths collectively signaled the end of an era in music. I chose Jimi because I feel that a guitarist influences the direction his music takes moreso than a vocalist does.

18 Robin Williams Robin Williams Robin McLaurin Williams was an American actor and comedian. Starting as a stand-up comedian in San Francisco and Los Angeles in the mid-1970s, he is credited with leading San Francisco's comedy renaissance.
