For me, it has to be without a doubt the assassination of John Lennon. I was very shaken up by his death, and often wonder what he would have acheived had he lived longer. I will never forget the night he died, and it was announced on the news. I felt as if I had the wind knocked right out of me.

George Harrison's death was also, for me, very sad, even though it was expected. Another great artist.

None. Celebrities mean nothing to my life's plan. They could care less about me, so I return the favor.

Bridget Fonda.

I know she is still alive, but I have a strong sense that that will not remain so for long.

PS, I've never been wrong about that before, so we'll have to see...

Aaliyah (sp?). I love her music. But nobody seemed to care about her death, because just when the media began to report about it, it was 11sep.

Why in the world would you say that?

I don't know. I just get feelings like that sometimes. Like when Phil Hartman died, or John Candy, or Regis Philbin (HA j/k, I wish). Also, I don't think madonna has much longer either (I hope I'm wrong about that one!) Also, it's not just celebs, I knew my wife was gonna be outta there three weeks before the 11th last year, and my step dad earlier this spring was no surprise to me as well (though that did happen in a violent auto wreck --no cancer or anything)

PS, I am not a hitman.

Seriously though. My wife and I talked about it and she said Princess Diana and Stevie Ray Vaughan.

I can remember when Elvis and John Lennon died, but I was a child and didn't know much about them. When I grew older and was able to appreciate Lennon's work and his impact our culture, I fully realized that his death was indeed a horrible loss.

As a teenager, I was pretty shaken when Cliff Burton, the bassist of Metallica died. They were my favorite band of the time and, considering the freakish nature of his death, it disturbed me considerably. I was just an infant when Jimi Hendrix died so I don't remember it, but I always wondered what great music he might have created had he lived longer.

In addition, Stevie Ray Vaughan's death shocked me. I have a musical background and thereby had a deep appreciation for his talent (and still do). Another great artist whose life was cut tragically short.

The circumstances behind Phil Hartman's death were disturbing. I always enjoyed his work on SNL, but had he died another way, it probably wouldn't have affected me as much.

One last one... I never really cared for Nixon one way or the other. But I found his funeral to be quite poignant. Maybe it was because it was the first time I witnessed our Nation lay a former President to rest, but instead I think it was how the media tried to respectfully memorialize him after having vilified him for so many years.



Patrick Bateman is my hero.

For me personally..it was Princess Di. I was watching TV with some friends waiting in line to see RENT here in LJ. Very tragic. What an amazing woman she was.

Kurt Kobain. WHen he died it was like totally sad, and I was like totally depressed and stuff. I was like "Kurt!" "Kuuuuuurrrt..." His music was like totally deep and stuff. I like read his poetry and stuff. I was all "that's so me dude." And now he's totally dead and stuff. Bummer.

I'm with KROC. If I enjoy Singer X's music or Actor Y's acting doesn't mean I give a shit about them personally.

Normalspeed, Kurt Cobain ? Spare me the tears ! Middle class white boy with too much money and attention looses it and eats his own bullet. BFD !

Saw a great t-shirt just yesterday. Cobain with a rifle in his mouth with 'NEVERMIND' written across it. Perfect !

Ditto for Diana.

The one that affected me most was the assassination of JFK. As very few of you were around at the time, I understand how you, well, don't understand.
When you are in first grade and 5 years old. The assassination of a national leader will affect you greatly. The only other example is when John Lennon was murdered. That hit me a bit hard also.

Nowadays it's the death of anyone younger than me that hits the hardest.  Smile/happy/getting dizzy



Damn, this website is getting worse daily.

I would have to say Kurt Cobain, and recently Layne Stanley.

Their music pretty much was theme music to my High School years, I graduated in '94 and have fond memories of my many friends and the good times we had. And music was a big part of it, I freaking played the Singles Sound track and Dirt so many times I would have to go out and buy new cassets all the time because I would wear it out (or my friends would steal them Big grin

Many of them mentioned above now have some affect on me, but I only lived in the later part of the 80's, so John Lennon's death didn't have any affect on me. RIP btw.

I'd say Princess Diana, Layne Staley and Chris Farley.

RIP to all of them.

Aaliyah, and Lisa "Left-Eye" Lopes. I LOVED TLC back in the day, and I was devastated to hear that she died. I wasn't much of an Aaliyah fan but when she died I cried for weeks because she was so young and had a lot going for her.

Jeremy. "I wasn't much of an Aaliyah fan but when she died I cried for weeks because she was so young and had a lot going for her."

You cried for weeks? Are you serious? Do you think if you died in a plane crash instead of her, she would cry over you? I'm not trying to be a dick, but seriously.

Wow. I can't believe that someone actually took that seriously. I thought that I'd stepped out of charachter enough that no one would miss the sarcasm. Pacificjourney, you really need to loosen up.
