    Default Attention. If You're a Rock Star Over 35, Your Grave is Ready.

    Attention. If You're a Rock Star Over 35, Your Grave is Ready.

    Someone with a lot of time on their hands did a webpage (overtly religious) that shows how rockers tend to die at half the age of regular folks.

    Not that it's much of a surprise. In a lifestyle where booze, drugs, car crashes, suicide, murder and choking on vomit while unconscious are the top ways to go -- yeah, then it would be common to flame out at a young age. According to their stats:

    The average age of an American at death: 75.8 years
    The average age of a rock star at death: 36.9 years

    Click on the link below and scroll through the list of dead rock stars to see the age when they died and what caused it. You might get a jolt from some of the entries -- You mean the guy from Blind Melon is dead?!? Even though it is a long list it doesn't look complete or updated. Like that dude that sang for Alice in Chains isn't on the list -- Layne Staley, and a couple of rappers I could mention. And isn't calling Stu Sutcliff a Beatle a bit of a stretch?

    It is depressing, but you would think some of these guys would finally figure out that alcohol and drugs just don't combine for a long life. I know there were other causes in there, but you don't ever see a Behind the Music on VH1 where a musician says "I owe everything to drugs and alcohol. If we hadn't started doing crack, we would have never had made it...".
