Shamelessly stolen from blogging Brightonian Bedsit Bomber, this list of dead rock stars makes for fascinating if morbid reading. There must be some they've missed, but I can't think who, apart from all the Ramones bar Joey. They have Malcolm Owen, both Pretenders, Sandy Denny, Nico etc, though I'm not sure Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan was ever a rock musician.
I'm sorry to see Van McCoy had a heart attack - must have been doing the Hustle too much.
