Any list like this must have Jim Morrison. 1943-1971. The Doors are definatly one of my favorite bands of all time.

You don't get Joplin, Hendrix or Morrison dead at age 27 without discussing the age 27 curse which started with Robert Johnson...Sold his soul to the devil to play this here geetar.

Interesting stuff out there depending on how far you'll let your imagination run.

Yeah, I had him listed as well, then I reread the title of the thread. If you expand past the 30 mark by only a couple of years, this list get big in a hurry.

Hah, when I first saw this thread I thought of a lot of the names that have been subsequently mentioned. I didn't want to bother looking up all the ages of the great rock stars, but I knew there was way more than this list had in it. Also, if they're going to mention Biggie, why don't they mention Tupac? Or Eazy E?

I'm ashamed that I'm only now mentioning it, but what about Dimebag Darrel? That was a damn shame, too.

How about Randy Rhoads, as well?

The list seems to go on and on

Randy Rhoads, Cliff Burton, and someone who is probably very underrated in terms of contributions to the metal world, and who died at the young age of 34, is Chuck Schuldiner. I wouldn't consider any of these guys "megastars" but they sure as hell would have rocked the crap out of 99% of the music that gets played today. Rest in Peace guys, we miss you.

All these last guys are good points, but isnt it guys under 30?

Cause you could add Layne Staley in aswell, though he was a little over 30, 34 i think.

Original bassist of The Beatles. He played with them for like, 2 years, and died at 21. And his last name is spelled Sutcliffe, not Stucliffe.
