The deaths that put a tear in your eye


Recommended Posts

I was 11 when Lennon died, I had just started listening to the Beatles from a friend that had some tapes.


I will never forget that day and the day after. I still have some newspaper clips...


The other death that shocked me was Cliff Burton's. I could not believe when I heard the news. I have always been a Metallica fan from the very beginning.

not many have died in my life time but i know that there is buddy miles and mitch mitchell (R.I.P.) and also lynyrd skynyrds pianist (i always forget his name) and possibly allen collins too.


i have been thinking and feeling sad lately though because lots of great musicians are going to die in my lifetime.


also i have to say that even though it wasn't in my life time it makes me sad when i hear about hendrix and SRV.

Being a huge Beatles fan certainly John and George top my list. I guess if I had to pick one it would be John's tragic shooting. It was just such a shock and after not making any music or appearances for 5 years he was back with double fantasy. Just gives me a sick feeling thinking about it now. Of course with George we knew he was not well and you kinda had the feeling he was fighting a losing battle. It was not any less of a loss but not as shocking as Johns violent death.

Definately SRV for me. It was so sudden and he was at the top of his career. I remember hearing it on the radio while driving and I almost pulled over I was so shocked.


I was a little young to have been affected by Lennon, but I can appreciate how shocking it was now.
