Hi what do you think about the tragic deaths of great musicians.
I think Elvis' death was one we didn't see coming
Freddie's was one we definitely saw coming
Kurt Cobain's was impossible to devoted fans
John Lennon's death a great loss to music
I hope Mark Chapman rots in hell the bastard!


I'm just a musical prostitute my dear!

I'm sorry but I think most folk saw Elvis' death coming, the most. Folk saw what he looked like in Vegas and it was pretty obvious from not only that, but his famous diet! lol

Peace,
Adam.

Oh for fuck's sake, why does everyone place Kurt Cobain on such a high pedestal? He was just another guy who could barely play guitar, glorified only because of his suicide. Please.

I pretty much feel the same way about Kurt Cobain. I just don't get what my generation saw in the guy.

Peace,

Nicely put. But, hey, we still have Mick and Keith of the Stones (I believe both men deserve the rank of "immortality" at this point)!

Eddie Vedder is, miraculously, still alive.

And so, equally miraculously, are two members of the Who.

Think how all those "dead artists" are still raking in big-time moneymoney -- Elvis was Number One on Forbes Magazine's list of "deceased entertainers" still making money on recordings and merchandise!
Oh, to be rich and dead...*snicker*

It's strange how the truly great Artists are often troubled(more than others). It is believed that Freddie was traumatized in childhood...
