I know both Rock Hudson and Robert Reed did. Rock was an actor of the 50s and 60s and Robert Reed was the dad on The Brady Bunch.

Celebrities who died of AIDS? I don't know no-one
Celebrities who died WITH AIDS? I know one who died a November 24th from lung bronchopneumonia


And as the seasons turn the days to years

She holds her pictures, hears the silent cheers

The days grow lonely for the dancing Queen

And now she dances only in her dreams...

AIDS itself is almost never (or just plain never) a direct cause of death. thus "AIDS-related pneumonia", etc. It all boils down to the nature of the disease -- AIDS destroys the immune system, but it's up to something else (often times something normally fairly innocuous) to take the life. Cancer, on the other hand, actually *can* be cause of death.

thus, someone dies "of" cancer.
but someone can only die "with" AIDS.

Actually, AIDS doesn't really cause infection. It destroys your immune system so that if infection does occur, your body no longer has the abilities to fight it off, and then you die.

*putting on his grammar-teacher hat*

to settle the "of/with/from" debate....

one can only die "of" or "from" something that is their actual cause of death. AIDS is not a direct cause of death, there for someone cannot die "of" AIDS, or "from" AIDS, but only "with".

think of someone lying on their deathbed with a pocket full of sand. they have the pocketful of sand when they die, yet you wouldn't say that they had died from a pocketful of sand. they did, however, die *WITH* a pocketful of sand. (even if this sand somehow allowed the infection that finally killed them)
