Just an interesting site for those who have an interest in Rock and Roll history. Namely when artists have passed on.

Damn funny....:laugh:

It is interesting to see how many of those 80s musicians hung themselves after the glory faded. And of course there are a ton of heart attacks listed as I imagine the party fun caught up to many of them as well.

Edit: Didn't mean to come off uncaring.

Just some crazy notations from that site.


Patrick Waite
head trauma (1993). Bassist for '80s one-hit wonders, Musical Youth. Waite, who turned to a life of crime after the band's break-up, died while awaiting a court appearance on drug charges. Supposedly, an undiagnosed viral infection caused Waite to pass out. As he fell, he hit his head and died from the injury. He was 23. "Pass the Dutchie"

Merle Watson
(Eddy Merle Watson), tractor accident in 1985. Unable to sleep, Watson went to the basement to trim some paneling for his basement walls. The saw blade hit a fault in the grain and a large piece of wood splintered off, embedding itself in his upper arm. Watson grabbed the key to his farm tractor, and left to seek help. He proceeded to a house at the summit of a steep hill, where the owners of the house were able to aid him in removing the splinter. Bandaged, but weak from the loss of blood, he left to return home. On the way back down the steep hill, the tractor brakes locked, and it pitched over a high embankment. Watson was thrown off the tractor which landed on him, killing him instantly. He was 36. MerleFest, an "Americana Music Celebration" named after Watson, is held annually in Wilkesboro, North Carolina. "Cotton Row," "Guitar Polka," "Freight Train Blues" (Thanks to Fuller Up, Dead Musicians Directory for the information.)

Interesting that John Lennon's tooth is expected to fetch at least $16,000 dollars in auction, but who would have thunk his last autograph would sell for this amount.


Edit.... last link I'll post. Just some really neat trivia for music buffs.
