This is true, but the point I was trying to make was that drugs also took so many good ones from us. Janice, Jimi, Moon, Bonham, Morrison, etc,,,,,,
That is true, but on the other hand: those people maybe wouldn't have been half as legendary if they didn't die a very early, tragic death...
Why is Lennon more popular than McCartney? Because he died young. Everyone remembers him as a handsome <40 year old guy. When you say McCartney, more people think of a 60+ year old man.
Same thing with James Dean and Marlon Brandon. James Dean is still known as one of the sexiest men in Hollywood history. Marlon Brando is to most people the ugly fat guy from The Godfather.
