Untimely Passing

RIP John Lennon. The list of sudden and unexpected celebrity deaths is long—Princess Di, Heath Ledger, Kurt Cobain, Marilyn Monroe, and many more. Which one affected you the most on an emotional level?

  • I'm not really a fan of celebrities, but I would say, Rodney Dangerfield, Danny Kaye, Jackie Gleason and the legendary Marilyn Chambers. I don't really follow a lot of celebrities, so they aren't something that affect my life on any basis. Some deaths may be surprising, like Dom DeLuise, especially since people didn't hear about him for so long, and then you find he is dead. Kind of sad, but surprising. To each their own.

  • there're alot that make me terribly sad, but especially
    john entwistle
    keith moon
    john lennon,
    george harrison
    i miss you all! so, so much. <3
  • Kurt Cobain. Obviously not when he died, but after (considering I was about three, actually make that two). But now I lovelovelove Nirvana. It's really sad to think what could have been. I mean, they were just amazing. Kurt Cobain is a mild obsession of mine now. His death ended grunge, completely. He was the central figure of that whole movement. It's just crazy to think about all that he influenced and was a result of him just being who he was.

    John Lennon too. He was a Beatle. That in itself just says it all. Plus he was kinda my favorite. Even though I've never listened to his solo stuff after the Beatles, out of the four Beatles, he was my favorite.

    Heath Ledge was just a shock. I really didn't believe it. He was so talented.

    And since today is February 20 and all,

  • I would have to say, Elvis Presley and Princess Diana. It seems that the world stood still when each of them passed and I remember the weight of their passing immensely. Personal family deaths will always overshadow them for each individual but on a purely celebrity basis, these are the two that struck me the hardest.
  • "Kurt Cobain is my hero because he overcame depression and commited suicide."

    Good times. >.<


  • Celebrity deaths don't really affect me, because I haven't really had an emotional attachment to any who have died. I think I'll be pretty sad when Bob Barker dies. The Price Is Right was pretty epic, back in the day. The guy manages to have so much class, even though he's like a million years old. And he has a great sense of humor too. I can't take the show seriously, now that Drew Carey is the host.
  • Well since Lennon and Monroe were before my time I can't say their passings affected me on an emotional level. So of the other 3 I would have to say Heath Ledger affected me most on an emotional level. He had such a bright future....life was cut way too short. I hate that the good are always the ones that die young and the jerks, criminals and other similar people get to live on ruining peoples lives and destorying the world.
  • RIP John Lennon. The list of sudden and unexpected celebrity deaths is long—Princess Di, Heath Ledger, Kurt Cobain, Marilyn Monroe, and many more. Which one affected you the most on an emotional level? Well, even though I was unaware of all of these when they happened, the three most troubling celebrity deaths to me were: Jim Henson, He was young, and it was such a sudden and unfortunate occurance. Richard Hunt, He was even younger than Jim, and unlike Jim's death which was quick, Richard's was drawn out and tragic. John Denver, Even though both his personal and professional lives were kind of going downhill, I believe he could have made a comeback. Heck, if no one else, at least I would have bought his albums, and gone to see his concerts!
  • Kurt Cobain.  I was pretty young when he died but I was already a huge fan. I loved his music and find that many of the songs related to my life. I was devastated when he died and I cried when I saw it on MTV news, so every year on the day of his death I devote the day to listening to his music.
  • Though I wasnt alive/old enough to remember either, Kurt Cobain and Bob Marley. They are two of my favorite artist. They both had alot of talent and died too young. Thier music-Kurt mainly-seems like I wrote it myself. Nirvanas music has literaly changed my life. The lyrics touch me in such a deep way. Bobs music never fails to calm me, and make me see the good in everything. I dont think that anyone will ever live up to Bob or Kurt. They really were two amazing people.
