Attention. If You're a Rock Star Over 35, Your Grave is Ready.

Posted by Fara Kearnes on April 27, 2005 9:45 PM |

Someone with a lot of time on their hands did a webpage (overtly religious) that shows how rockers tend to die at half the age of regular folks.

Not that it's much of a surprise. In a lifestyle where booze, drugs, car crashes, suicide, murder and choking on vomit while unconscious are the top ways to go -- yeah, then it would be common to flame out at a young age. According to their stats:

The average age of an American at death: 75.8 years
The average age of a rock star at death: 36.9 years

Click on the link below and scroll through the list of dead rock stars to see the age when they died and what caused it. You might get a jolt from some of the entries -- You mean the guy from Blind Melon is dead?!? Even though it is a long list it doesn't look complete or updated. Like that dude that sang for Alice in Chains isn't on the list -- Layne Staley, and a couple of rappers I could mention. And isn't calling Stu Sutcliff a Beatle a bit of a stretch?

Read it and weep -- Dead Rock Stars.
