Very sad, and signaled the end of one of the most inventive and eccentric artists. EVER! - Jiorl
Incredibly talented, brilliant writer, skilled guitarist and great vocalist. Very versatile musician. Throw on Sublime at any party and hard to beat the mood. Tragic loss, cut too short.
Greatest musician. Life cut short just as he makes it big time. How is he not higher?
Of he wouldn't have died. The music world would be totally different
:,( very good band, extremely talented and fun, so sad to see him goV 1 Comment
Jim Morrison of the Doors
He had amazing lyrical ability and sadly died of a heroin overdose. He was one of the most famous people from the 27 club, including Curt Kobain.R.I.P. all dead musicians.
Well he actually isn't dead... He's alive at a farm in Oregon where he raises horses obviously
Hated his own voice
Song of the millenium
Screw you cancer! - ItsDaWorldOfSNuGGLEZ
He was a true legend, one of the original grunge artists, and he paved the way for so much change in the music world. His voice was one of the most powerful in rock, and his words were dark and soothing. Rock on in the afterlife!
I would always hear Soundgarden on the radio growing up and later got into Audioslave a band that inspired me so much musically. Chris definitely had a voice like no other.
I love you Chris.. You are a legend and will live on forever.
I still can't believe it...
1 album, no artist that great should only get the chance for a single album. And yet the quality on that album - that is what makes it the saddest, he could have done so much more with his life. His death was such a throw away moment too, swum into the river and then a few minutes later he was gone - not a death worthy of this brilliant musician, no depression, no struggle, no point to it. Just another sad accident.
The best vocalist ever, cut down in his prime. So so sad! - dxfifa
Truley an amazing rapper. If she was still alive, Nicki Minaj would not have a career. But like I was saying. She always rapper about what was on her mind, and what was also cool was that her lyrics came from the bottom of her heart.R.I. P LEFT EYE, YOUR TRULEY MISSED, YOUR LEGACY STILL LIVES ON, TLC4EVA!
1℅!? Lisa was one of the most influential female rappers ever. She should at least be in the top 20. 8 months after Aaliyah right on the same day she died And more than 30,000 people attended her funeral. An amazing female rapper with a great singing voice. Great friends with 2pac and they both died horribly. R.I.P Lisa - ItsDaWorldOfSNuGGLEZ
Another member of the 27 club.
Why is she not in the top 10? - ItsDaWorldOfSNuGGLEZ
Chester, was an inspiration beyond just his songs. They way he lived, the way he spoke,the way he took care of his fans, seeing it all from afar was so awe inspiring that I remember saving myself from a potential suicide by one of their songs. In the end, it did matter Chester, it mattered to a whole lot of us.
Almost threw up when I saw the news... so tragic and so recent. Another child hood legend gone. He could scream and had great vocals.
I listened to his music since I was almost 3 and his death shocked me. His death is the most trajectory to teens and fans of 2000s rock
By far the most tragic musician death of 2017V 6 Comments
Both him and otis were huge talents that died young
His death was so sad it shocked everyone, and, although many of us were not alive at the time of his death, including me, we've ALL heard the songs that were based off his death, like American Pie. - emraldYE
Holly would of been a definite force in the music industry. Should be near the top of untimely music deaths
He did a lot in his 2 years in music industry!... More than the rolling stones in their 50 yr career! Even influenced The Beatles
Despite conflicting evidence as to Elliott's mental state in the last weeks of his life, there is no question that he was on an upward trajectory overall - having been clean from illicit drugs and excited to be recording again. Elliott had such a big heart and was by all accounts a person full of love and generosity. Not to mention, one of the most talented and profoundly affecting musicians that ever lived.
The question of suicide vs homicide will probably never be answered for certain (except for perhaps one person who knows for sure). That question may add to the legend, but either way it is monumentally tragic. Just look at the footage of his very last concert (Redfast, UT). The man, apart from a little irritation at messing up a few times, seems much more at peace than almost any concert you'll see of his from his last 4 or 5 years. From the guitar work and singing you can tell he has clearly put the focus back onto his music.
He came so close to getting back to ...more
Don't understand why nobody had voted him
He had so much potential. he could have made the great soul album but he died before he had the chance - RecklessGreedV 2 Comments
Brains, charisma and super talented. Tupac may be remembered as a gangsta rapper but in reality he was a renaissance man. Not only involved in music but he was an up and coming actor who was also planning on releasing a book of poetry before his untimely passing. A true legend taken from us before his time. May you forever Rest In Peace Mr Tupac Amaru Shakur
Whoever did this will eventually pay. R. I. P. - 3anegroes
He is the best we will ever have. There will never be any greater.R.I.P. Tupac Shakur. You will be forever loved and missed.

Love, love will tear us apart again, and it did
Such a depressing life, I bet he's looking down down on new order and happy to see how far they got.V 1 Comment
Such a talented rapper, to get gunned down in a revenge act just before you sign a major record deal is just the worst case of luck I've ever heard. R.I. P
