Is 2016 worse than 2009 and 2012 combinedjp12960 After hearing about the death of Actor Gene Wilder yesterday, I have begun to realize that the amount of deaths this year is higher than that of 2009 and 2012 combined
So let's realized who died during those years
2009: The Death of Pop
Starting with the death of Saturday Night Fever/Grease Actor John Travolta's son, the list expands to the deaths of Brittany Murphy, Ed McMahon and Farrah Fawcett. The Death of Pop Superstar Michael Jackson on June 25 shocked the world (and almost killed the Internet in the process)
Death of the year: Michael Jackson
2012: We are not 'Stayin Alive'
The year saw the deaths of Davy Jones (Member of the Monkees), Donna Summer (Queen of Disco), Dick Clark (Host of American Bandstand) and Robin Gibb (Member of The Bee Gees and Brother to Barry, Maurice and Andy Gibb) The death of 80's Pop Singer Whitney Houston brought in pourings of grief. The year ended with the death of Jenni Rivera in December (and there was no end of the world)
Death of the year: Whitney Houston
2016: Heaven is partying like it's 1999
This year's deaths include Maurice White, George Martin, Frank Sinatra Jr., Nancy Reagan, Chyna, Lou Pearlman(Yes the most successful manager since Brian Epstein died), Gene Wilder and Antonin Scalia.
The Deaths of British Rocker David Bowie, 80's Rock/Pop star Prince and Champion Boxer Muhammad Ali brought the most shock.
Death of the year: 3 way tie so far (Bowie, Prince, and Ali)
