Picasso was, I think, 90 years old when he died.

92. But compared to George Burns and Bob Hope they're rank amateurs.

Ashley Willworth. She died at 18, and while none of you have ever heard of her, she was an incredible violinist: a very competent concertmaster, and a brilliant performer.

What about JFK? I would say he died at a relatively young age.

Really... People die at all ages. What about the absolute millions of kids that never saw their 5th birthday. They might have become the next Lennon. On the other side, there have been many good people die in their nineties I'm sure. Just as there have been many scumbags that died young and old. My own brother died in his thirties and my niece died when she was bloody 2 - there's no rhyme or reason to it, it's just life.

But even accepting your sentimentalist approach, you've totally forgotton John Henry Bonham!!! :)

And Picasso had a hell of an innings. I wouldn't be crying for him.

Because:

1) we're mostly talking about pop-artists. Pop-music started (roughly) in the 50's with young artist. They come of age these days, mid-seventies, the average age for humans in a western country. Some do, but they became uninteresting because they didn't die, and just grew old.

We only remember the ones who died early (Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens, even Elvis). The ones who grew old, Jerry Lee and Chuck Berry, only reach the headlines when they do incredibly stupid things.

2) pop stars tend to live unhealthy, therefore they die at a young age (Jim, Janis, Jimi, Brian)

3) some pop stars would have been long forgotten, if they hadn't filled lists like these

The world is a very wrong place to be, I don't know why the good die young, life is short anyway, though sometimes you don't appreciate the time you have and things you have.
