Thanks, Beckeye!

Beckeye added to the list of rockers who have died, I will be adding them to the list in chronological order today. I can't believe I didn't have Joey and Dee Dee Ramone, on the list, it was a total oversight, I could not forget them.

You're welcome! I forgot another one...

Cliff Burton, bassist for Metallica died on 9/27/86 when their tour bus crashed. I heard about this on Behind the Music but didn't remember all the details. Pretty freaky stuff. I got this info from Wikipedia:

"While on their European tour, Burton and Kirk Hammett drew cards to see who would get the top bunk. Cliff pulled the Ace of Spades, sealing his "victory". Burton died when the band's tour bus hit black ice and flipped over in rural Sweden. As the bus was skidding and rolling, he fell out of a window and was crushed by the bus. It is unknown whether Cliff was still alive at this point. He was crushed again when the winch cable lifting the bus off him snapped, dropping the bus on him a second time."

If you feel you are missing a few, any of the ones that recorded during the 80's (no matter when they passed on) are listed in the People Who Died section in the My Place section of 80's Music Central. Hope it leads you to a few you might have missed.
