Question Who is your favourite passed-away-too-early musician

Lots of musicians died before their time, depriving us of great music, their genius minds could have given us. Which one is your favourite?

Lots of musicians died before their time, depriving us of great music, their genius minds could have given us. Which one is your favourite?

1) W. A. Mozart (1756-1791). Arguably the worlds greatest composer ever.

2) Charlie Parker (1920-1955). Jazz saxophonist, nicknamed the Bird. Ranks with Miles Davis as most influential musician of his time.

3) Brian Jones (1942-1969). Founding member of the Rolling Stones. Became the first Rock & Roll martyr after he drowned in a pool.

4) Jimi Hendrix (1942-1970). Worlds most influential, and arguably the greatest, guitarist ever. Suffocated in his own vomit after overdosing.

5) Janis Joplin (1943-1970). Nicknamed Pearl, Jopplin was one of the greatest sixties icons. Died from an overdose two weeks after Hendrix.

6) Jim Morrison (1943-1971). Charismatic lead singer of rock legends The Doors. Died from an overdose and was found in a Paris bath tub.

7) Kurt Cobain (1967-1994). Lead singer and guitarist of highly influential grunge band Nirvana. Commited suicide in his garage.

8) Tupac Shakur (1971-1996). Most influential gangsta rapper of the nineties, voice of a generation. Shot dead in Las Vegas.

9) Aaliyah (1979-2001). Omnitalented artist and R&B icon. Died in a plane crash after shooting a video.

17 (yes, yes, yes!) Slams! And counting....

Though they died too early, they lived to the ages of 45, 36, 40 and 44 respectively. This has given them plenty of time to leave a musical legacy to the world. My poll includes only artists who died at a very young age, with the exception of Mozart, and Bird. They are included both because they are icons of a tragic early death, and because I wanted to include musicians from different eras.

There are plenty more i can think of, The Allman brothers, Notorious B.I.G., Tommy Bolin, Cliff Burton to name a few. But alas, a poll can only include 10 options!

Re: Who is your favourite passed-away-too-early musician

these five are close to my heart, in roughly this order:

Mozart

Janis Joplin
Charlie Parker

Jimi Hendrix

Kurt Cobain


Another big loss was Schubert, who died at age 32, I believe.

I believe in luck. How else can you explain the success of those you don't like? ---Jean Cocteau

In that case I'd have to say Ian Curtis of Joy Division, who died at the age of 23 ... I am 23 now as well..!
And Tami Terrell, the soul singer who died of cancer aged 25...
