    Favorite Dead Rock Star

    I was watching a documentary on The Ramones and I was reminded that Joe Strummer of the Clash had died several years ago.

    I think that Joey Ramone may be my favorite former rock star.

    Who is yours?

    Leif Garrett, except he is still alive and not really a rock star.

    Bob Marley, not really a rock star, but one of the greatest musicians ever, and died totally needlessly, I guess religion is a powerful thing.

    Old lead singer for INXS... whatever his name was.
    Just for having a hilarious story that he went out on.

    Re: Favorite Dead Rock Star

    John Lennon...has to be him! Although George Harrison is still rising on my personal favorite list!

    I am younger than being able to experience the Beatles as they burst onto the scene and continued to burst...but three of those four are incredible (sorry goes out to Ringo fans)!
