Otis Redding
Sam Cooke
Janis Joplin
Patsy Cline

  • Gord Downie of The Tragically Hip, he was an amazing writer and singer, they are a Canadian band and one of my favourites. He died at the end of last year. He was probably in his 40s or 50s but was amazing.

    There are others but I don't want to write anymore lol

  • Chester Bennington. Even if he passed away at age of 90 it still would have been too early.

  • John Bonham Keith Moon Jimi Hendrix Syd Barrett but that was dude as acid overdoses he lived for several years is not coherently Jeff Healey Freddie Mercury

    Anyone that committed suicide though purposely or accidentally due to drug overdoses I don't count they take themselves and it died naturally they're better off gone if day did that

  • A Brazilian band called "Os mamonas assassinas" - It means "The killer tits". Their songs were the funniest in all of Brazil's 90's and I grew up listening to their CD (Yes, their career was so young they had only launched their first CD, but it was already a top seller).

    The whole band died in a plane crash months before I was born T_T

  • Amy Winehouse was definitely at her peak with Back to Black but Sam Cooke will always be my absolute favourite so I’d say him even though he managed to release 10 years of material before he was shot
