Saddest Musician Suicidesphillysports In light of the passing of two of the greatest rock singers of all time, I've decided to make a list dedicated to the musicians who passed in the most tragic way possible. Rest in peace.

No, Michael Hutchence and Hideto didn't want to die: they died accidentally from autoerotic asphyxiation - a dangerous autoerotic practice that often looks like a suicide but it's not. This practice is the restriction of oxygen to the brain for sexual arousal either by "controlled" hanging or by putting a plastic bag over the head. You understand that things can go wrong and out of control.
If interested, there's a list with details and police reports - Top 10 Famous People Who Died from Autoerotic Asphyxiation.
And Michael Hutchence is at #1. Hideto is also in the top 10. - Metal_Treasure

Similatly to Michael Hutchence, it wasn't suicide. They caused their own death but they didn't want to die. They died accidentally from an autoerotic practice gone wrong. Hideto was found "hanged with a towel tied to a doorknob." This is typical for autoerotic asphyxiation.
People who try to commit suicide don't hang from doorknobs by towels. - Metal_Treasure

Drummer of Feeder - phillysports
Dutch singer and songwriter - phillysports

It seems that many people are unaware that he committed suicide. He shot himself in the head at the age of 71. He suffered from depression and nerve damage. He felt his career at this point was a letdown for his fans. He shot himself in the head. He did not realise everyone would bitterly miss him. - JoLeKosovo
He shot himself with a gunshot and left a note saying "Sorry for all the blood."
Euronymous came in. He found his body, rearranged it and took a picture of it for their next album.
Welcome to black metal. - JoLeKosovo
