What Guys Said 11

  • "I'd rather be hated for who I am, than loved for who I am not."
    This is my one of the most favorite quotes :) I like and use it so much.

  • The twenty seven club is the ones that get me. So many...

    • Yes :( very sad indeed.
      A couple of people mentioned here were a part of that list.

  • Ah, why is it that the good die young, while Cliff Richard just refuses to die at all?
    Although to be honest, a fair few of the names on that list are more notable for having died young than for actually having had any talent.

    • Who would you say?

    • I am not familiar with a majority of these artists (my original list--displays artists I know of). This one was done moreso for the people of GAG b/c they made suggestions.

  • Sam Cooke and Otis Redding <3 best soul singers to have ever graced this Earth.

  • 2|1
  • Otis redding such a shame

  • WHAT, a continued list and still NO ROY ORBISON.

    • Read what I said up above.
      I will continue the list with the "most" mentioned in my comments section from last take.

      You're the only person who mentioned that person.

    • Show All
    • Really? Lol. The thirst here

    • Thanks for the mention. How about Roy Orbison

  • Roy Orbison? Buddy Holly? Hank Williams? three great singing stars not mentioned. both Hank and Buddy died before age 30. But still a good list mentions some i refrenced in your previous post

    • If I kept accepting peoples mentions I'd have endless mytakes on this :P everyone mentioned or not deserves to be honored as made clear towards the end :)

  • Michael Hutchence, Janis Joplin, Joe Strummer, Bon Scott

  • Where's Tupac?

    Oh I get it, Cuba because he's still alive! I gotcha!

    • He's actually in my first take which was linked in the beginning

    • Show All
    • MJ was "old" as in middle-aged.
      But speaking from a full life span aspect... it was relatively young.

    • Depends where in the world you are I guess.

  • Nice take!! Next time include #RoyOrbison


What Girls Said 3

  • I don't really understand #15

    I mean, you even labelled her as "aspiring"

    If we are going to go down that road...

    • Lol. Aspiring meaning that is what she was striving to be.

    • Show All
    • ok, I didn't notice this take was old.

      and regardless of how much people recommend.. if they don't actually fit the topic..

      Thats all I'm trying to say.. if it wasn't for who her parents were, none of us would even know who she was.

    • Well that's true.

      I was debating whether I should put her because she never even had her own album.

  • ROY ORBISON pleeeeeaseeeeeeeeeee!!!

    @llorando <3

  • Freddie Mercury died young too 😭
