Avicii and Mac Miller died too young. Not to mention how they died.
ginger psycho (27 days ago)
The worst thing about Avicii is that his death could have been prevented. He was worn out, exhausted and wanted to stop touring for the sake of his mental and physical health. But his manager wanted more money and for him to keep working. He has blood on his hands and I don't think his fans or any of the community will let him forget that

We were really screwed when Aaliyah died.

I don't understand the praise for xxtentation. he has been accused of domestic violence, but no one seemed to care. But then Johnny Depp allegedly abused Amber Heard and everyone wants him out of Fantastic Beasts 2.

i think john bohnam deserves a spot because Led Zepplim would be together and well possibly had he not passed
Andrew Pollard (1 month ago)
Avicii and _especially_ XXXTentacion do not deserve spots on this list over the true legends who are the in Honorable Mentions section. But alas in my opinion, I digress. But hey, another list maybe...

How you gonna put X 9th & Bob Marley 10th, should be the other way around lol
Omkar Shah (1 month ago)
No i don't fucking agree with your list. Ever heard about John Lennon, Jim Morrison, Bon Scott, George Harrison, Amy Winehouse, Freddie Mercury, Cliff Burton, Layne Stayle. No offense but you mentioned Mac Miller but not Chester Bennington and Chris Cornell, at least they deserved honourable mention.

Optimus Prime (7 days ago)
Xxxtentacion really did die at his peak tho, months prior, he released his album which peak #2 on the billboard, and his new album is projected to reach #1 in December, when its released. You may think his music his bad but he did have a big influence on this generation, read his Wikipedia page if u want

Cobain was murdered by Courtney Love. There is no possible way with the evidence that Cobain committed suicide. Love had Cobain murdered because he was going to divorce her.

Chuck Schuldiner was at his peak. Sound of Perseverance is said to be the best Death album and it was their last because he kicked the bucket

Amy Winehouse is at rest up the road from me, Edgwarebury Lane, Edgware, and the graveyard is next to large fields full of horses, which is very unusual for London. I remember how happy she was when she was riding a horse on a beach (in Jamaica I think) when she was in recovery, and I like to think she loves being so close to a field full of horses in her rest.
