TALENT WE LOST

R.I.P. Ronald Belford "Bon" Scott (AC/DC) - July 9th, 1946 – February 19th, 1980 (aged 33)
After a night of heavy drinking at a London club called the Music Machine, Bon Scott was found dead in the backseat of a Renault 5 in South London on February 19th, 1980. He was 33. It has been contended that pulmonary aspiration of vomit was the cause of Scott's death, but the official cause was listed on the death certificate as "acute alcohol poisoning" and classified as "death by misadventure."

R.I.P. John Ronald "Mitch" Mitchell (JIMI HENDRIX EXPERIENCE) - July 9th, 1947 – November 12th, 2008 (aged 62)

R.I.P. Michael “Wurzel” Burston (MOTÖRHEAD) – October 23rd, 1949 - July 9th, 2011 (aged 61)
