Live fast, die young and leave a good looking corpse is what they will tell you when you first become a rock star. What they won’t mention is the indignity of meeting your end floating face down in a pool or sitting on the toilet with your trousers at your ankles.
Some of the most popular and inspirational rock stars of all time died in shocking ways and here are some of the most shocking rock star deaths which shook the world.
Kurt Cobain Death Conspiracies

It is hard to believe that the Nirvana frontman died almost 20 years ago. At just 27 he was tragically young when he apparently committed suicide and it is impossible to imagine what a 40 something Cobain would have been like. Drug addiction, illness, depression and relationship problems are cited as being the reasons behind his suicide but there are plenty of Kurt Cobain conspiracy theories around to keep you intrigued as well. Some people will tell you that he was murdered, some will tell you that he is still alive and still others will maybe even tell you that he was never even born. There is even a theory that he died because he played the guitar left handed (as this was possibly the cause for his stomach pain which caused him to take so much heroin).
One of the big problems with making movies is that you pour your heart and soul in making a compelling film which will be your legacy to the world and some internet geek comes along and points out that your characters are wearing watches while battling with dinosaurs or eating pizza in the ice age. Never mind, here are 25 movies with obvious anachronisms to look out for.
Back to the Future
I always thought that writing the script for this film must have been a nightmare and it is certainly full of errors. One clear anachronism is that Marty McFly plays a Gibson guitar which didn’t exist yet (no, he didn’t take it back with him).
Finger monkeys, these tiny monkeys do exist.
Many people have seen pictures of tiny monkeys so small that they’re able to cling onto a human’s finger. They have become increasingly popular with the rise of photo-sharing websites. This leaves many people searching for information on what type of monkey it is, where they can own one, and whether or not the images are edited. Fortunately, these ring-tailed adorable creatures do exist; here, you will find a little more information on “finger monkeys” and their origins, as well as whether or not you can own one of those furry little buddies for yourself.
April 15th is tax day in the US. It’s also, forever more, going to be known as the day of the Boston Marathon explosions (bombing?) and the tragic death of atleast 2.
While TBR doesn’t often get serious, we send this image out to those impacted by the bombing and their families. Send your favorite running quotes and we’ll add them below.
The thirst you feel in your throat and lungs will be gone minutes after the race is over. The pain in your legs within days, but the glory of your finish will last forever.

What would happen if you were stuck on a “deserted”island with ten people from the cast of “Lost”. Who would you choose as a team to get you off the island before death came knocking? Think carefully about the traits that each person holds. Will it consist of Kate, the whining, but self serving vigilante? How about Rose? She is smart and caring. That could go a long way in a terrible situation. How about minor character Libby? She seems tough and understanding. Here is one scenario team that would get you out in a timely manner.
John Locke: Locke is a natural leader. A survivalist. Whether it be a gun or a knife, John practices his weapons training whenever he can. He is a strategist and masters maps and graphs. Although it seems like he doesn’t care, he does what’s best for his team at any cost. John also works well with a diversity of people. That matters in a time of crisis.
