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

    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".

    This is an article in which I tried to bundle all the great losses of rock'n roll. That means all the musicians which are worldwide known and died at young age (before 54 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.
