Really miss this guy, and especially like this video for 2 other reasons, one is the bird on the keyboards with the strong legs.

I'm sure you can work out the second one.

Jaco Pastorius - would have loved to have heard more collaborations with Joni. 

John Bonham - I was just getting into Zeppelin when John Bonham died. A powerhouse of a drummer.

Jim Morrison.

Jimi Hendrix.

Janis Joplin

Thing is, though, they'd probably be shit doing music after their prime.

 

... Kurt Cobain.  Was in my 3rd year at Uni and in full on grunge mood when heard he'd had an argument with a shotty and lost. Sad times.

Interesting. I knew her a bit via her brother Neil who I in turn knew from a Cambridge band he played with. The couple of times I met her she was funny - very dry sense of humour. 

edit: Neil, not Ewan. D'oh.

Mr Pin, did you ever work in a chippy and sing Elvis songs?

Dio (although he did have a good innings as an artist)

Randy Roads, died too young due to someone showing off doing stunts with a plane

I miss Freddie Mercury. Fab, over the top front man to a clever group of musicians. I like a lot of their songs.

IMO he was a deep down lonely guy who succumbed to a disease while on a quest to find "love".

Queen were outstanding at that live aid gig in the 80's?

Awesome band, great musicians. Freddie's voice and his showmanship fucking amazing

Still penning original melodies when he died so I assume we have lost a few he would have written. Good original melodies have dried up in the pop scene in the 21st century.

Some interesting choices so far, i'd add a few obvious ones, Prince, Bowie, Michael Hutchence, Robert Palmer all taken from us way too soon, plus some cool early rock n rollers like Eddie Cochran, Buddy Holly.

The one that hit me and i still miss a lot is George Michael, his musical output wasnt huge but the quality and heart and soul he put in to his work was outstanding. Its a real shame that Murdoch et al completly trashed him after the Beverley Hills incident and he was never the same basically a recluse, despite his seeming resilience in the media by way of self depreciating humour.

His later work and esp his vocal delivery holds up very well despite the abuse he seemingly put his body through with his drug use. RIP George, 53 is no age.

Here's his heartfelt cover of Elton John's 'Idol', well worth 5 mins of your time, it also has a lot of his idols in the clip, some will belong on this list..

George Michael's passing was a big shock. :(

For me it's probably Prog Rock keyboard master Keith Emerson from Emerson Lake & Palmer. Keith died in March 2016 and fellow band member Greg lake (Bass/Guitar) died later on that year.

Rumour has it they lost shed loads of money on their global tour. They were huge but bringing their fanfare to the common man cost even more than their stardom warranted.
