Jimi Hendrix's Death Ranked Most Untimely

(Gibson) A list on Ranker.com suggests that of all the rock stars who have passed away, Jimi Hendrix's death was the most untimely. The website, which showcases lists created and voted on by visitors, has published a list that ranks "Rock Stars Whose Deaths Were The Most Untimely."

The folks who created the list are careful to point out that this isn't a list of the greatest dead musicians, but stars who could have continued to create a wealth of great new music had they not died. Hence, Hendrix, Kurt Cobain and Janis Joplin (who all died young, at 27) currently are in the Top 10, while Elvis Presley (who died at age 42) is placed closer to #30.

Artists on the list (which includes 46 people) include Buddy Holly, Keith Moon, Duane Allman, Otis Redding, Bob Marley, John Lennon, Randy Rhoads, Gram Parsons, Sam Cooke, Ian Curtis, Amy Winehouse and Bon Scott. more on this story
