Have a WONDERFUL rest of the night all!!
I have no idea the actual number....but I know the number is up there. In music alone I can name Joplin, Jim Morrison, Michael Jackson, Kurt Cobain, Ike Turner, Bon Scott (ACDC), Steve Clark (Def Leppard), Andy Gibb, Keith Whitley, Hank Williams Sr., Elvis and Hendrix right off the bat and I know there are a whole lot more. Then who can forget Heath Ledger, Marilyn Monroe, Anna Nicole Smith, River Phenoix, Hugh O'Connor and Bruce Lee. Chris Farley and John Belushi, And I think ironical is Sigmund Freud.
John Belushi, Elvis Presley(maybe)((not really very funny)), Andy Gibb, Jim Morrison, Jimi Hendrix, Chris Farley, Janis Joplin, Norma Jean(Marilyn Monroe), Keith Ledger, Keith Whitley, Hank Williams Sr., River Phoenix,
Keith Moon, Michael Jackson?, Anna Smith, Judy Garland, Sid Vicious, Ike Turner, Kurt Cobain, Brian Epstein, Lenny Bruce, Louie Spicolli, Steve Clark, Mama Cass and Brad Renfro. I would say Bruce Lee but I don't believe he died from marijuana allergies, I did add Curt Cobain though, even though I think he actually shot himself while on heroin.
There are a lot of them, and I can't remember all of them. Janis Joplin, Cass Elliott, John Belushi,Heath ledger. I think RHD pretty well nailed it. I don't know anymore than that.
Sorry nassy, too many to list, they either need a drug to wake them up, energize them or put them to sleep so they can get some rest, it can be prescription drugs or recreational drugs , it seems they don't realize a drug is a drug in any form or no matter how you acquired it, all in all it would be too much typing to list them all, they either died from the drug or because of the toll the drug use had on the body over the years ie Ray Charles......the best to you doll
SOOOO many to name..... I have decided that I dont want to be rich... If I get headache, I take Tylenol... The rich seem to skip the Tylenol and go right to the hard stuff. I can take an extra Tylenol occasionally if needed.... But when you're rich... Seems an extra will kill you... No thanks... I'd rather be poor and alive.
I Only know 2
Michael Jackson & Elvis Presley are two.
Nassy! The only one that hit me hard was Janis Joplin!
While going to the UF (GO GATORS) in the 60s I almost took her home after the concert!
Boy would this Roster have Crowed then!
Jeepers, I can't remember them all in one sitting, but most are listed by everyone on here. We all have pressures to deal with in life, but those in the public eye, those that entertain us for a living, those are the ones who have pressures we just can't imagine. It's never ok, no matter what your pressures are, to choose this avenue to deal with those pressures, but that said, it seems a great deal of entertainers still choose drugs to cope. And we (me included) just cheer them on and cry when they're gone and act shocked when the tox results show drugs.
I can only think of 2 Elvis and Micheal Jackson
I could name dozens, but I choose to not to because I want nothing to do with idiots who kill themselves with overdoses of illegal drugs all in the name of getting high.
