• Yes, I do, but Stevie Ray Vaughn is the musician I miss the most.
  • No. But there again I wasn't born yet.
  • yes John It was the Immaculate conception, I was on my way to church with my mom and brother, I think I was 9 or 10
  • I was in Tennessee when Elvis died and it was like royalty had died. I remember Lennon as well, terribly sad and tragic. Others who died tragically were John Denver, Patsy Cline, Lynerd Skynerd, Ricky Nelson, The Big Bopper and Richie Valenz ~ off the top of my head.
  • what about buddy holly, richie valens, the big bopper???
  • I remember both of those, i was ten when Elvis passed 1977 and did get a little confused as i thought we had a Queen and everybody was crying over the king! But i did love his music as i got older John Lennon 1980 I loved the song Imagine but i wasn't a Beatles fan only liking a few of their songs.
  • Yes, I do, along with Rick Nelson, Buddy Holly, John Denver, Johnny Cash, Eartha Kitt, Odetta, Frank Zappa, Roy Orbison, Janis Joplin, Jim Croce, Conway Twitty, Mama Cass Eliott, Sonny Bono, Gerry Garcia, and the list goes on and on......................................
  • Keith Moon greatest drummer of all time Harry Nilson John Lennon's best friend. His coffin fell into a crack in the floor during California earthquake, Never recovered. Buddy Holly. Plane Crash Many more
  • The earliest (really major) musician death I remember was Johnny Cash. He died when I was 10, in 5th grade. There were some I remember from before them, like Chet Atkins and George Harrison, (both died 2001, when I was 8) but they are more obscure.
  • Country Musics Johnny Cash and Conway Twitty were 2 big ones for me. +5
  • Frankie Valenz, The Big Bopper, & Buddy Holly...The Day The Music Died. There was also Stevie Ray Vaughan, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Michael Jackson, Patsy Cline to name a few more. BB King if you like Blues. Oops, almost forgot Freddie Mercury & Jim Croce!!! George Michael, Johnny Cash, Kurt Cobain, Jeff Beck, Ricky Nelson.
  • Ritchie Valens. He was 17 years old, an accomplished singer, songwriter and guitarist. His career lasted a period of 8 months, and already he was making numerous hits.
  • It was nearly 80 years ago, but Glenn Miller was maybe the biggest name during the big band era of music and he was killed in a plane crash during World War 2. People nowadays probably think "meh," but, seriously. 17 #1 hits is more than Beyonce and Justin Bieber combined.
