  • I was 10 years old when Elvis died. It upset me. He was a part of my childhood and he was just gone one day. I was old enough to know why he died and it just seemed so sad that he died like that at such a young age. I knew, even at that young age, that things were going to be different from that point on.
  • Elliott Smith took his own life (allegedly) in October 2003. His music had a profound effect on my life from the minute I started listening to it. I think I own more of his music than any other artist. He was young, depressed, and another beautiful tragedy...
  • Several - John Lennon, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Jim Croce, Marvin Gaye. I thought they were marvellously gifted and I'm sad we won't hear what they'd have come up with next.
  • I am always abit sad whenever a good singer or actor dies. Jim Croce Harry Chapin Bobby Darin John Lennon of course Karen Carpenter John Denver and many more who were unique and died too young often.
  • Elvis, Johnny Cash, Bing Crosby, Freddie Mercury. I had a bit of a sob when Johnny Cash died. I think he's a big loss.
  • for me i was most sad for layne staley from alice in chains die and it actually made me teary eyed a bit.
  • More than I can even remember. I has very diverse taste in music. Really, the loss of anyone makes me sad whether it's a musician, artist, and etc. A few that instantly come to mind are: John Lennon Ritchie Valenz Elvis Patsy Cline Johnny Cash Freddie Mercury Cass Elliot Karen Carpenter
  • jim croce, johnny cash, jim morrison, all of them really.
  • Kurt Cobain
  • Wendy O Williams. That was really very sad, she was nothing short of unique defined :)

  • John Lennon. What a senseless act of violence against a very passive kind soul
  • Elliott Smith. I acutally went into a bit of a depression for a while afterward. I didn't listen to his music for almost a year after that. It's still hard for me sometimes ... I was a bit mad that he killed himself really.
  • Michael Hedges. Died in a car crash, mysterious circumstances. Not many people seem to have heard of him, but he was highly regarded in the music industry.
  • john lennon
  • i haven't been REALLY sad from any musicians passing, but i was a bit sad when i heard about johnny cash. him more than any other musician. i was bummed that some of the others wouldn't be able to make any more music, but it didn't make me sad so much (for whatever reason).
  • Mine has to be 2pac(tupac shakur) , simply because he influenced the whole world of rap and hip hop with his amazing lyrics. R.I.P PAC
  • John Winston Lennon 10/9/40 - 12/8/80 He's still around - I feel him without a doubt. But still I miss the music and I feel for Yoko; life seems so unfair sometimes. I just read, the other day, that they had been concerned about security around their home and had made an appointment to speak with someone about it but for some reason cancelled and rescheduled the meeting for 12/9/80! Just goes to show that, truly, one must not put off until tomorrow something that would be better done today. :(
  • John Lennon, Johnny Cash, Freddie Mercury, Marc Bolan, Elvis
  • There was so much carrying on at my job when Jerry Garcia died. I like the ice cream but that is it. My dad obsessed about Selena when she died, he never even listened to her music. Maybe when Elton John or Meat Loaf croaks I will have a cry.
  • barry white...(sigh)

  • Kurt Cobain
  • D.Boon of the Minutemen.
  • Paul Hester - the drummer from Crowded House. Committed suicide a couple of years ago.
  • Buddy Holly, although I am saddened by the death of anyone who brings us some musical pleasure.
  • wow i could not believe that i went through every one of these answers and no-one mentioned Janis Joplin.what a tragic loss it was to hear of her death.she really put every ounce of her heart and soul into her songs.even now almost forty years later when i hear some of her music i still find it incredibly moving.
  • for me it was bob marley. I was 13 when he died...... and just the year before he came to my hometown to do a concert and my mum wouldn't let me go because i was too young......so i never did get to see him live.
  • i cried when Roald Dahl died, does that count also?
  • The singer in Blind Melon, I can't recall his name right now...
  • Jim Morrison, Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, John Lennon, Randy Rhoads, Brian Jones, Syd Barrett....and the list goes on and on. And recently...Richard Wright :-(
  • This may be a bit of a cheat, as he's not well known for this, but he was a superb jazz trumpet and (once) had a fine voice. I miss him mostly for his other talents, though. Spike Milligan.
  • Jim Croce. He was a good songwriter, singer and person.
  • Stevie Ray Vaughan
  • Kurt Cobain yo
  • Layne Staley, I mean nobody found the guy until he had been dead for a couple of weeks. He was really talented. Of course, I was sad when Kurt Cobain died as well. I was at work when my husband called and said that he had killed himself and I thought he was joking. The electrician who found Kurt was related to a guy he was friends with. So before the news had time to hit the local radio station, my husband knew all about it.
  • Most recently, Warren Zevon, I'm reading the book, "I'll sleep when I'm Dead... He was a genius, songwriter. Send Lawyers, Guns and Money.. or the Headless Thompson Gunner,,,,,,Love his music.
  • Kurt Cobain and Jerry Garcia.
  • Awww... Marvyn Gaye =(
  • I'm still sad about Karen Carpenter!!! sniff sniff
  • Kurt Cobain. <3
  • Cobain, and Shannon Hoon. Wish Hoon had lasted longer. We got to see alot of great work from Cobain, but Blind Melon truly died without Hoon.
  • Staley, Cobain, Rhodes, Dimebag and Lennon.
  • Lennon and Cobain. Sure wish I was around to have heard them live.
  • David Reilly of God Lives Underwater Dave and I had become friends via the net, God Lives Underwater was my fav band..we kept in touch for about 5 years as the band disintegrated due to Dave's drug addictions..he tried to get himself clean then his girlfriend was hit by a train, he went through some rough times, the band split up, the last album was mastered wrong and sounded like crap (not songwise but quality wise) then Dave got clean for good and everything seemed to be working out, he released a solo album and he contacted me to come to Philly to jam with him and possibly play guitar and do backup on his new album tour. I was stoked...then I didn't hear anything for a few days...last time I had heard from him he mentioned having a really bad toothache...turns out he died from the tooth bleeding into his lungs while he was asleep. He was almost done with his second solo album..it's still in limbo, but I got to hear pieces of it and early versions of songs..not sure if it will ever be released...myself and some other GLU fans put together a tribute album in his honor and it came out with the book "The David Reilly Memoirs".
  • Luther Vandross.
