Default Musicians whose deaths effected you?

I will probably legitimately cry when Phil Collins dies.

Not sure how many years BC has left in him - 30? 40? But when he does go - assuming I'm still alive, and regardless of how much further he dumps on the SP legacy in the meantime - it will affect me. Really owe a bunch to that guy in my life, turned my brain on to music in large part.

Past that, Morrissey is gonna be the end of an era for sure. Nobody else like that guy nowadays - the last true showman out there.

Im sorry to say this D but I rejoiced when Collins announced his retirement.

I'm trying to think...but I come up with nothing. some MIGHT affect me when they happen, but in those that have died...no I don't think anyone.

Yeh well refusing royalties to Rourke and Joyce is a pretty shit thing to do. So they signed a bad contract then, regardless, the decent thing to do would be to let them have them now. they weren't just wallpaper. Especially rourke, he wrote the music with Marr and his basslines are integral to the Smiths sound. The smiths is a band I can only like if I ignore Morrissey basically and I find him worthless as a solo artist.

Peter Gabriel and Sting's death will have a big impact on me. Same with Stewart Copeland.

Probably Rod Argent, Colin Blunstone or Chris White of The Zombies. They're all getting quite old, their original guitarist already died just over ten years ago, and they've never performed in New Zealand as far as I'm aware.

shit bro I am seeing the Zombies in August. I fucking love Rod Argent. I would imagine it's hard for 3rd tier (in the public mind) classic rock band to tour in NZ unfortunately. They are still really good live and Argent is just a god on those keys

Cobain definitely did. Lux Interior.. ODB I'm still bummed about. Same with Mark Linkous and Vic Chestnut.. Rozz Williams.. Lennon and Darby Crash... pretty much any of the suicides from bands I liked. only peoplen i actually cried over was Cobain and Linkous. Layne Stayley too cuz he offers himself same day a friend did. Just reading about anyone's death usually affects me. I'm death obsessed.

I never could get much into BC but I think The Skids were one of the truly underrated punk bands.

I felt ambivalent when U2 and Green Day covered the saints are coming ,on the one hand, it was nice to give the skids exposure, on the other, it was done by Green Day and U2...........

When Vic Chesnutt died I had only been aware of him and his music for less than a year, but I still sobbed like a goddamn baby when he passed. Mitch Mitchell's death also made me cry. Syd Barrett too.

These guys' passing will make me sad:
Dylan Carlson
Daniel Johnston
D'arcy
John Frusciante
Isaac Brock
John Darnielle


Not just because of the awesome music they made, but because of the tragic lives they led which seeped into their work. I think a lot of artists don't get enough credit for baring their souls to us, especially after they've experienced so much hurt. It's a tremendous task to put yourself out there and make something that emotionally unites every person in the room.

Most recently Jason Molina, Vic Chesnutt and Mark Linkous. Vic Chesnutt's passing sent me into a long depressive crisis... Most painful ever was Elliott Smith. I was five so too young to feel Kurt Cobain's death but I do remember seeing it on TV and I think it affected how I saw "rockstars" growing up.

I'll definitely mourn Morrissey... John Darnielle mostly annoys me now but yeah, I'll fucking cry.

Actually I hate this thread, let me never open this again and never think about these people dying.

When most musicians (or other famous people) die, my usual reaction is "oh. how about that."

When those three I listed died, I was sad for about an hour.
