• Famous Dead Musicians/Artists and Causes of Death (Pt 1, Age 16-36)

    23. Jul. 2011, 23:56 von thomas10

    This is an article in which I tried to bundle all the great losses of rock'n roll and modern music. That means all the musicians which are worldwide known and died at young age (before 51 years old). I tried to give a little information about the way they died. Most of the information I got from Wikipedia. When someone thinks I forgot an artist or that the information is incorrect... I'm open for new information.

    The list is in order of age of dying

    For the artists older than 36 I'll recommend you Pt 2;

    Ritchie Valens (1941-1959)
    Plane crash. After a winning cointoss and despite of his fear to fly, together with Buddy Holly and The Big Bopper, he flew out of the Mason City airport in a small plane that Holly had chartered. The plane flew into a blinding snowstorm and crashed shortly after takeoff. This is known as "The Day The Music Died".

    Come tutte le cose che inizio, probabilmente anche questo post/elenco/ripieno di cioccolato e buona volontà, finirà nel limbo delle cose che non finisco.
    Chi mi conosce, sa della passione che ho sempre nutrito per la musica e nel corso degli anni ho sperperato una quantità invidiabili di danaro nell'acquisto di CD più o meno validi. C'è da dire che molti provengono anche dalla zona franca del "Campione gratuito - Vietata la vendita" di quando le case discografiche ci mandavano i dischi per le recensioni sulle pagine della rubrica Music Machine all'interno di The Games Machine (e qui un pensiero va alla grande Roby che per anni si è sbattuta per farmi andare a scrocco un po' ovunque, tra concerti e conferenze stampa clamorose - Dream Theater, Tori Amos, Metallica solo per citarne alcuni). Ho messo in piedi una discreta collezione, non da guinnes ma decisamente rispettabile.

    In ogni caso, oggi ho attinto dalla megalibreria dedicata allo stipaggio dei miei preziosi supporti argentei e jewel case di tutte le misure. …
