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.

Andrew Pollard (4 days 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...

Pick insipid pop acts like Avicii and Mac Miller, but completely ignore Jim Morrison, Robert Johnson, and Nick Drake? Get out.

How you gonna put X 9th & Bob Marley 10th, should be the other way around lol
Omkar Shah (5 days 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.

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.

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.

Aaliyah was a good singer back then before she dies in airplane accident. I know she was in Jet Li movie called, "Romeo Must Die" and a vampire movie name "Queen of the Dammed".
