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!

Default 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.

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...
