I started to put together two lists. Rock Bassists and Musicians Who Died Before 30. I have more than 10 artists for each group, so they will need to be pared down and potentially added to. Which one has more interest?
Buddy Holly Jimi Hendrix Janis Joplin Jim Morrison Sid Vicious Kurt Cobain Tupac Shakur Bradley Nowell The Notorious B.I.G. Robert Johnson Duane Allman Hillel Slovak Ronnie Van Zant Hank Williams Sr Randy Rhoads
Here are 15 to being with. I just grabbed the names that quickly came to mind. Feel free to comment, add, suggest subtractions, etc. I think we should stick with ten.
