How Famous Singers Died

By Tiara

Many famous singers of all time died in tragic accidents or due to health issues, but what is interesting about these deaths is that they often prove how popular their songs have become. With every performance people are exposed to parts of the song and may even recognize some lines!

Many of these songs remain well-known not because of the singer’s voice alone, but because of the catchy melodies and lyrics. When these die, it can hurt the music legacy and reputation of the artist.

Fortunately, there are ways musicians and aspiring artists can prevent such tragedies from happening to them. This article will go into more detail on some potential dangers for your musical career and what you can do to avoid them. So keep reading!

I would like to add here that I am definitely not telling you to be careful about how much sugar you eat or to never take risks again – we all need those rewards now and then! What I am saying is that if you are already very healthy, you should try to stay that way by avoiding things that could potentially harm you.

Dangers of being musically active

As mentioned before, overtraining is one of the biggest risk factors when it comes to pursuing a career as a musician. Having too many performances, rehearsals, or recording sessions can easily push you beyond your physical limits.

That is why it is important to know the basic rules of fitness for musicians.

The Notorious B.I.G.

After leaving his home in North Carolina, he was shot several times while driving his car. He was then pulled out of the vehicle and taken to the hospital where he later died. Police determined that he had been killed by gunshots coming from both front and back.

The murder investigation focused heavily on two main theories. One theory claimed that Big may have fought with someone outside the car before being gunned down. His murderer escaped in an unknown getaway vehicle.

Another theory was that Big may have known about a robbery or assassination plot against him or another individual. In this case, his killer planned to use his gun as leverage to make Big give up information or money.

But what no one has confirmed is whether or not he was murdered because he found out about the plan in advance. It is also possible that his death was linked to his music career, but none of these things are certain.

Kurt Cobain

Nirvana’s frontman, singer, songwriter, and iconoclast Kurt Cobain tragically took his own life in April 1994. He was 27 years old.

Cobain had struggled with depression for some time before he killed himself. While many people know about Cobain’s death, very few are aware of how it happened. It is important to note that this information can be extremely upsetting or even disturbing. Therefore, make sure you are ready to handle these types of stories before reading on.

It is also important to remember that while it may seem like the media has an agenda when reporting such tragic events, they do so out of pure grief and sorrow. There is usually no reason for there to be a sensational headline or narrative.

According to reports, Cobain died from suicide by gunshot wound. Although police were never able to determine what gun he used, they did find one at the scene. They also found several notes written by him. One of them read, “I have enough pills to last me until Christmas. If I don’t get help soon, then my family will!”

Another noted, simply, “Pills hurt too much. Sorry I’m not strong enough to endure more pain.” These two quotes clearly show that he was actively seeking help, but was denied due to a lack of compliance. This only made his decision to take his own life all the more heartbreaking.

Elvis Presley

In August of 1977, just three months before his death, Elvis made national news for passing out during a concert in Las Vegas. He was reportedly drunk and had to be rushed to the hospital after he collapsed. While no alcohol or drug overdose was confirmed, it is known that he suffered from sleep apnea and night time drinking may have been what caused him to pass out.

After learning more about how this could potentially affect his health, many people assume that someone who suffers from sleep apnea would not drink as much alcoholic beverages at night. However, this is not always the case. Some individuals with sleep apnea will consume more alcohol because they are trying to stay awake while sleeping.

It is important to note that although most people do not suffer from sleep apnea, one in every two hundred Americans does. Since there are an estimated ninety million people between the ages of twenty-one and sixty-four that can identify some form of the disease, knowing how to treat it is very important.

This article will discuss some ways to reduce your risk of suffering from sleep apnea by changing your lifestyle. Unfortunately, due to the nature of the disease, quitting smoking and losing weight are unlikely to help unless you decide to pursue additional medical treatments.

Michael Jackson

In 2009, the world was stunned to learn that singer/songwriter/pop icon Michael Jackson had been accused of child molestation by his doctor. He later settled out of court with Jordan Chandler, an aspiring dancer who claimed he was abused as a boy when he lived in Arundel, Alabama.

He also paid $100 million to settle lawsuits filed by other men accusing him of sexual misconduct or abuse. These include claims from at least 10 more accusers outside of Chandler’s legal team.

But while many people may have thought that his death would put these stories to rest, it has done just the opposite. Since his passing, several more allegations have emerged, some even claiming he died because he knew about the new accusations and they threatened his legacy.

These newer accounts accuse not only Jackson of wrongdoing but also go into greater detail than what happened before. It is our duty as informed citizens to take these claims seriously due to their credibility and corroboration. There are enough clues indicating deception that we cannot afford to simply assume anything said by anyone regarding this artist is true.

His family needs our support now more than ever, and there are things we can do to help them heal. But for those of us who loved his music, it is time to start listening to his songs again without the constant reminder of how much pain he caused others.

Carrie Fisher

The iconic actress died at age 60 due to cardiac arrest caused by complications of chronic alcohol use, reports TMZ. She was hospitalized last week for severe abdominal pain and was subsequently rushed to the hospital where she later passed away.

Carrie rose to fame in the early 1980s as Princess Leia Organa in the original Star Wars trilogy before going onto bigger things like General Hux in Empire Strikes Back and Admiral Ackbar in Return Of The Jedi.

She continued acting into her late thirties with notable roles including Life As A House, Gone Baby Gone, and now she’s just another face we will never see again.

Her passing is very sad not only because she was such an integral part of the franchise that has changed Hollywood but also due to how much she loved being in the movie industry.

In several interviews, she expressed her desire to remain actively involved in the film business even past when it paid well and gave her recognition. Unfortunately, poor health prevented that.

Tupac Shakur

In April 1996, two years after his last album was released, Tupac left a concert in Las Vegas with Death Threats ringing in his ears. He hopped into his vehicle but never re-emerged. His body was later found shot eight times, including twice in the back.

The police determined that he had been killed by gunshot wounds to the head and torso. They also discovered what appeared to be marijuana and cocaine in his car along with six guns.

Tupac’s murder shocked the music community and inspired many songs. Some even wonder if his death was planned. However, none of these theories have any solid proof or clues as to who may have done it.

It is still something law enforcement investigates, however.

David Bowie

In January 2016, reports surfaced that musician David Bowie had been rushed to a hospital in Germany after experiencing chest pains. He was initially said to be suffering from exhaustion before being admitted into the intensive care unit.

However, less than 24 hours later his condition deteriorated as he experienced low blood pressure and doctors performed an electrocardiogram (ECG) which revealed possible irregular heartbeats. It is at this stage of the diagnosis where things get very serious for Bowie.

Doctors perform a transthoracic echocardiogram which rules out any potential causes of his initial symptoms but confirms the presence of multilayer atherosclerotic plaque within the left main coronary artery. This further raises suspicions about underlying health conditions such as hardening of the arteries or cardiovascular disease.

It is during these final stages when cardiac surgeons are prepared to act. They give him time to recuperate while putting in place all available resources to ensure he survives the surgery. Unfortunately, despite every effort, he did not make it.

He passed away just over one month later on 8 February. While the exact cause of death has yet to be determined, there are several theories surrounding what may have contributed towards his demise.

These include complications arising from his ongoing battle with cancer, poor circulation due to arteriosclerosis causing his feet to swell up, and finally, the extensive use of steroids which can increase mortality among people who suffer a stroke.

Ronald Reagan

After leaving the Screen Actors Guild in 1980, actor/politician Ronald Reagan was diagnosed with prostate cancer. While he initially responded well to treatments, his condition progressed later that year. In September of 1981, he had surgery to remove part of his pelvis before undergoing more intensive radiation and hormone therapy.

It has since been determined that these therapies may have contributed to his eventual death from natural causes. His family decided not to tell him about the link between his treatment and his mortality for fear of upsetting him.

In fact, even after doctors informed him that it would be impossible to cure his disease, he still opted for the same course of action due to his strong religious beliefs. He died just six months after having his first round of chemotherapy.

?He suffered greatly during those last few weeks as his health continued to deteriorate, but he never gave up hope. He remained hopeful for himself, hoping to find another way to treat his disease, and for his loved ones who were around him.

After spending several hours talking with reporters outside his house one day, he returned home and passed away shortly thereafter. It is our responsibility as educated individuals to know the potential side effects of any given medication, and how they could potentially impact us or someone we love.

By educating ourselves, we can help prevent such tragedies from happening.
