1. Stevie Ray Vaughan - I went home sick from work that morning because of it.
2. "Dimebag" Darrell Abbott, who got shot onstage a couple weeks ago. Double bummed me just because fans can be so sick and it ruins it for everyone. Why can't rock stars just O.D. like they used to? What's with the violence?
3. Ray Gillen, a tremendous rock singer who did stints with Deep Purple and Sabbath, but is best known from being in 80's hard rock act Badlands. Died of AIDS, really sad situation.
4. Jonathan Brandis (sp?). Remember SeaQuest DSV? I was looking at Roy Scheider's entry on for something completely unrelated and suddenly remembered that show. Click click click, suddenly I find that the kid who played the son committed suicide a few years back. Apparently couldn't adjust to life after child stardom. Don't know why it made me so sad that day, but it did.

Phil Hartman and John Candy, too.

Hey Elpsode, it was John Belushi, right? Jim hasn't croaked has he?

Yes...duh. I had Jim on the brain because I was considering Jimi Hendrix, but figured it was redundant.

Wolf - good call on Harry.

After reading through the rest of the posts, I'd have to agree with John Lennon. That one really bummed me out at the time.

I also miss John Candy, but wasn't sad when he died. If that makes sense.

A lot of these guy lived hard before they died, and their deaths weren't such a shock. Also, when someone old dies, it's not unexpected.

John Lennon and Phil Hartman did not live gangster lives. They were both still in their prime. They were healthy. Even Lennon had cut back on the drugs. They were both a shock.

I was sad when Mr. Rogers died too, but he was getting old. He was a decent man, and as much as people liked to joke about him, he really made the world a better place.

I was bummed when Captain Kangaroo died.

Ditto Graham Chapman, John Candy, Gilda, Madeline and Phil. They all were incredible talents.

John Candy

We used to see Farley and Candy in social settings in Chicago all the time. Farley was a really quiet guy when it was just you and him. down to earth, almost shy. but when the 3rd person got on the elevator, the SNL characters took over.

Phil Hartman... I was deeply saddened by his death. He was so funny. I loved him on SNL and News Radio.
I love England, what can I say?

Lennon shook me up
Belushi , well that was no real suprise , but still a tragic loss
SRV mess me up for a week or so , he was JUST getting his shit togather

The older folks ,like Senatra , Carson, Hope , Mr. Rodgers , they all had a good run , left lasting memorys for MANY folks , Sad they died but we are ALL worm dirt one day .
