(Radio.com) Will One Direction outlive Justin Bieber? A new study on rock and pop star mortality proves this just might be the case.

There's good news for boy band fans as researchers from Liverpool John Moores University in Britain revealed "musicians who reached stardom after 1980 have better survival rates." Additionally, early death for solo artists is double to those in a band, with solo artists from North America having the worst survival rates.

"While this may simply be a proxy for level of fame, with solo performers often attracting more attention than for instance a drummer or keyboard player in a band, it also raises the issue of peer support as a protective factor," researchers wrote. more on this story
