Top Ten Saddest Musician DeathsChickenlegs
The Contenders: Page 3
Mitch Lucker was drunk and speeding through traffic. I'm sorry, but he brought it on himself, and I have no sympathy for him. If he didn't die that night, then an innocent person could have. - ryanrimmel
He wasn't just a band member, but a father and a husband as well. You will never be forgotten... - ItsDaWorldOfSNuGGLEZ
One of the most tragic deaths in metal history. We miss you Mitch. R.I.P.

Like Robert Johnson and Buddy Holly who died before him, Randy Died far too young. whilst many musicians on this list died with numerous albums under their belts, Randy died producing very little for the industry. What Randy made during his time with Ozzy was brilliant, but Imagine what he could've done afterwards. He wanted to go to university to play classical guitar, imagine the albums he could make. The guy was brilliant and did not deserve to die. Bon Scott and Freddie Mercury had done a lot for the industry and whilst their deaths were sad, I feel Randy's death is sadder because of not only his age, but how much of an impact he made with his short time with us, when he had so much more in him. Rest in peace to all those mentioned on this list.
Even with such a short career he is still considered one of the greatest guitarists of all time. He was very much ahead of his time with a unique neo-classical guitar style. One can now only imagine what he could've achieved musically with a career that lasted decades instead of mere years. - petrucci75hammet
One of the flashiest metal guitarists ever. Made music entertaining, always will be a legend
I think he should be top 5 on this list. When you figure in age, talent and the way he died.V 2 Comments
Just watch the music video for hurt. Tragic...
Johnny cash was a great man but he was extremely old when he died so I didn't find it that sad.
He died the same day funnyuser was born.
How can you say that I mean Johnny cash is known as the man in black in black and he has a great talented family him, June, and his daugter Rosanne Cash.
Chi suffered for 5 years being in a tragic car accident in 2008 which landed him in a coma. He eventually woke up, and we put all our hope that Chi would make it back home and recover safely, which he did for a little while. Then, completely out of nowhere, he dies. He died a very under appreciated rock/metal bassist. We miss you Chi.
I had a tough time for what to choose, because all deaths are sad, but I must say this is the saddest. For drug addicts who die, it's there fault, they shouldn't be doing drugs. For suicides, they were ready to go. Biggie, he was only 24 when he died. He had a daughter, too. He had just made it to the top, but then a drive by shooter pulls up and kills him. Murders and diseases are the saddest deaths. I must say, with the type of death it was and the age of Biggie, this was the saddest. He still had a whole career ahead of him, but no, he dies.
God please give us back biggie and we'll give you back JB, lady gaga, lil wayne, and katy perry I mean come on god you can't turn that down you get 4 people for the price of one
Why the hell isn't this higher!
Come on people the most respected rapper of the east side a definition of loving,life, and letting loose
So cool and so badass! It stinks that he died. He was one awesome dude.
Also, Benjamin Orr, anyone?
WHY DID UE DIE
The only one listed who pioneered a genre and gave birth to two others. In 50 years he may be the most influential to musicians than any other listed.
He is the one who shows us the right way and what human really is. He is a philosopher, take a look of his songs. What the hell is wrong with you guys? What the hell Tupac is doing on the list? - Sverre
Brilliant man. Tragic death due to horrible healthcare.
Chuck didn't even have enough money for treatmen t.. t his is how true musicians are treate d.. p eople are overwhelmed with fake talentless dicks like the trans Justin Bieber and selena gomez and this great musician had to go away like this in vain... he certainly did not deserve this.. Chuck was one of the best guitarists of the era... he revolutionized metal genre and today people bring disgrace to him listening the BS called Pop and the fake ass idiots like Justin Bieber... i would be happy if this Bieber and other fake people pretending to be musicians die in vain...
He was an amazing musician very sad
Lead singer of INXS
We miss you, man. ;( - TheFloyd73
R.I. P Dio he was one of the best vocalists ever and invented the heavy metal devil horns we miss you Dio rock on m/
How is he not in the top ten?!?! One of the greatest vocalists ever!V 3 Comments
An awesome voice. Brian Connolly is the best member of The Sweet.
He was an extremely talented drummer! This wasn't his only talent, though - he was an exceptional songwriter, too! He wrote the masterpiece known as "A Little Piece of Heaven, " my favorite song by A7X and basically of all time. Oh Jimmy... Why'd you have to go? Sadly it happens to the best of us... Not garbage like Nicki Minaj and Pitbull! )'=
Jimmy "The Reverend" Sullivan was and will always be the best drummer. I don't know why he is ranked 5th, Paul Gray is 10th, and Kurt Cobain is 2nd all three of these guys should be at the top of the list. Also Cliff Burton should be up there as well.
He was at legendary drummer and songwriter and in my opinion he sings better than shadows. he was a funny guy that could have been the greatest drummer to EVERYBODY but medical conditions said otherwise.
It's safe to say that A7X will never be the same now that The Rev has left this world. But he will be here foREVer, in our minds and in our hopes.V 5 Comments
STP should have never fired him - DoroExploro13
Cause nobody has the greatest hits like Mama Cass especially her hit song make your own kind of sandwich and of course California dreaming with her group the Mamas and the Papas.
She died of a heart attack, not from choking.
She appeared in Scooby-Doo before her death. - playstationfan66
