Who actually died of natural causes?

By the way, I found a couple of eerie coincidences between Kurt Cobain and Layne Staley's deaths



Both of them were the frontmen for the 2 biggest "Grunge" bands

Both of them were Born in 1967 in Washington

Both of them Died on the 5th of April in Seattle, Washington

Both of their bodies weren't discovered until days after their death



Unfortunately, Layne Staley wasn't found until 14 days after he died, and apparently his body was bloated and decomposed  :-\\

I should probably correct myself.  Michael Hutchence death isn't exactly clear.  The long going rumor (And probable cause) is that he died from Suffucation while Masturbating, also known as "Erotic asphyxiation"

They obviously ruled it a suicide to avoid embarrassment for his family.  So the odds are that his death was an accident, and thousands of men die from "Erotic asphyxiation" each year (Although I don't know why anyone would be so stupid to even attempt it)

I had heard about Mike's death on the radio at the time it occurred (due to the large time difference between Australia and Los Angeles, I heard about it on the evening of November 21st), and the person on the radio said that the cause of death was unclear. All I remember is that Mike was "found dead in his hotel room." Still, it was a shocker. :\'(

Actually, I think he died in the 2000's. I'm not a hundred percent sure.

But they had some big hits in the 90s, didn't they?

Paul Hester committed Suicide.

Marc Hunter of Dragon died a few years ago of Cancer, I just dont think they had any hits in the 1990's.

One of the singers of Mel and Kim also died of cancer in 1990.


David Robinson of Australian Crawl also passed away aged 37 from Cancer.

Don't forget Bradley James Nowell the lead singer of Sublime whether you liked that band or not they were pretty big in the 90's. He died on May 25th 1996 when he overdosed on Heroin. :(

That's true, he did. And he was still in his 20s at the time. I think I remember reading somewhere (Wiki, I think) that he had been a really good student in school, but then he took a downturn somewhere in his adult life. Still, that group had some big hits in the world of alternative rock, such as "What I Got" and "Santeria" (which I think became hits after Mr. Nowell checked out).

Paul Young, co-lead singer of Mike + the Mechanics passed away in July 2000.  I know what you're thinking:  "They were an 80s band, weren't they?"

They sure were, but from 1991-1999, they released 3 studio albums (plus 1 greatest hits) that spawned 10 hits in the UK, 5 in Canada and 1 in the States.  Their 1991 'Word of Mouth' album was a masterpiece!

Did he die before they became popular?  I remember Gin Blossoms becoming popular around 94 or 95.  I wonder if the loss of his songwriting abilities caused Gin Blossoms to fade away.

No, not exactly. I think it was in early-to-mid 1993 when the group started to get popular. Their first single was "Hey Jealousy". Their follow-up, "Found Out About You", was released as a single right around the time that Mr. Hopkins killed himself, but peaked in '94.

About the man's songwriting abilities, it could have been a contributing factor, but after 1996 (when "Follow You Down" became a big hit) they really weren't heard from again.

GG threatened (and by threatened I mean promised) to commit suicide onstage on Halloween, 1989, but by that time GG was already doing time on a rape rap.  He got out and a few years later he tendered his resignation with some heroin speedball.
::)

Allin's demise did not deprive humanity of anything.

Jon Lee, the drummer for Feeder, committed suicide in 2002, shortly after they had finally broke the UK Top 10 with their 11th single 'Buck Rogers' in 2001.

He died in 2005; suicide.

Crowded House are back together, but it's not the same without him.
