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?

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!

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

Mozart :worship:

Janis Joplin :singer:
Charlie Parker :bowdown:

Jimi Hendrix :rocker2:

Kurt Cobain :)


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

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..! :sad:
And Tami Terrell, the soul singer who died of cancer aged 25... :sad:
