Killed when his car was hit by a tractor-trailer. Among other great contributions, he founded WHY - World Hunger Year - which became WHO - World Hunger Organization - Billyv
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.
Jeff wrote some of the best riffs in metal history, and is an inspiration and influence to millions. Reign in peace!
Man Jeff's recent passing was pretty sad. - Oliwally
Love, love will tear us apart again, and it did

He was an amazing musician very sadV 2 Comments
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
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
My favourite musician. So sad. Rip Chuck. - Oliwally
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...
An awesome voice. Brian Connolly is the best member of The Sweet.
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
Paul grey was and is an inspiration, he will be deeply missed and remembered for many years to come. He was a good piece of the backbone of slipknot and from what I've heard an amazing friend and band
Mate. He lives on in the music and in the hearts of the fans.R.I.P to the coolest guy in a pig mask to ever play drums.
Seriously? How is paul not on the list? He was one of the best musicians ever. I do not know how he is not on the list.
Not only was he a great bassist, he was also a great person. - NikBrusk
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 still can't believe it...
I cry a little inside knowing how he would have gotten even better at guitar had he not crashed his motorcycle into that truck.R.I.P. skydog.
Southern Man needed him around at all
I will never forget hearing about his death! I was a junior in High School and I heard Howard Stern announce his death on WC radio from Hartford, CT. to my H.S. in Somers Ct.
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
