I am curious about what some of your guys experiences with celebrity deaths has been. Scott Weiland's death has been the hardest one ever for me to swallow.

Maybe not that well known unless you're from the UK or a football/soccer fan. But him committing suicide was a massive shock
The plan was to drink until the pain over.
But what's worse, the pain or the hangover?

Good shout actually, I was struggling to think of any.

Clark Carlisle's attempt too since it was from a bridge I used to cross every day to get to college

Both Robin Williams and Rick Mayall were big ones for me. I like a lot of what they both did a lot. It's a shame we will never see them perform again.

idk can you give me a list of options

it's all just coming back
it's all coming back

it's all coming back to me
actually heath ledger was a big one for me

Same here for Robin Williams...that fucked me up.

Also, in a weird way, Christopher Lee.

Not so much as in "oh man what a tragedy", considering that he was past his 90's..It's not like a 40 year old man who dies in a crash or something.

But he was just..such an incredibly prolific, ever present and inspiring man that the day I heard he passed, I realized that up until that day I had this kind of weird idea that he'd always be there, putting out songs and whatnot. He was such an idol

Also, there was no news of him being ill or anything, so, I don't know. One day and he was alive and it seemed that his awesome presence would always be felt, day afterwards and he'd passed. Damn.
Never imagine yourself not to be otherwise than what it might appear to others that what you were or might have been was not otherwise than what you had been would have appeared to them to be otherwise
+1 to Robin Williams and Gary Speed.

Jonah Lomu a couple weeks ago too.

Obviously there are a lot but it's about what ones hit you the hardest.

With celebrity deaths, I'm pretty much either "who?" or "well, that sucks. On with my life, I suppose".

Yep. I guess Williams was pretty sad but I'd be lying if I said I thought about it for more than 5 minutes.

Phil o Donnell who was a Scottish footballer who played for a team round the corner from me.Collasped and died on the pitch.The images in the papers over the next few days were very haunting and shocking plus he wasn't that much older than me.
Scott Weiland and Wayne Static, because of the suddenness.

Like melodic, black, death, symphonic, and/or avant-garde metal? Want to collaborate? Message me!
Dimebag...still messes with me how that went down.

Michael Jackson was a sad loss for the world, I struggled to get over that one when it happened. Remember being in shock for a few days.

Also not celebrities but the people that we're killed at the Bataclan in Paris. Kinda because of how it went down, but mainly because those guys we're like all of us, gig goers who had gone out to see a band they liked on a Friday night...
Bradley Nowell, Amy Winehouse, Peter O'Toole.... Just a few. I'm sad that Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, and Jim Morrison are gone as well.
Scott Weiland is the first celebrity to die that I felt anything about. Im 29 and I grew up with STP saw them 5 times... RIP Scott
Probably Robin Williams or Steve Irwin. Neither was particularly old, had any well-known health issues or addictions they weren't sober from, or anything else to make you go "Yeah this guy may kick it soon." Granted Irwin had a pretty dangerous job, but it was still jarring both times.

Baltimore Orioles: 2014 AL Eastern Division Champions, 2017: 73-78
Baltimore Ravens: 2012 World Champions, 2017: 2-0
2017 NFL Pick 'Em: 24-7
Not really a celebrity, but I cried when the Philadelphia Phillie's broadcaster, Harry Kalas died. Listened to him my whole life and probably heard him call well over a 1000 games. Games after that were weird

I've never really gotten upset about an actor or anything though. I just think it's sad and then more on. There's some athletes that would definitely get me though if they suddenly died.

Oderus from GWAR.

oh yeah this too. i wasn't even a huge fan but I saw them live once and it stuck with me. pretty amazing that one concert had such a lasting impression on me, even if it wasn't entirely for musical reasons.

Static-X helped get me into metal, so Wayne kinda got me. I've been relistening to Start A War lately, for that reason. On the same note, Mitch Lucker. He gets shat on a lot, but I still think SS's first two albums were good stuff.

Also Michael Jackson and David Gold (Woods of Ypres).

Robin Williams' suicide was really shocking and saddening.

Philip Seymour Hoffman's death was also pretty tragic

Also Leonard Nimoy and BB King were both terribly sad for me, but not really surprising.

Gary Moore comes to mind immediately. a huge influence on me and didn't see it coming at all.
Joe Strummer hit me pretty hard.

I also have to do that. Cottaging this weekend
I think I was most upset by Dio, Ron Santo (Former Cubs third baseman), and Scott Weiland. Though Oderus and BB King got me down for a little bit.
Dio, I was still in the transition from dad-rock to developing my own tastes in music, and Dio was one of the few artists that survived that transition. Such a powerful voice, he inspired and contributed so much to the genre.

Also, chess Grandmaster Bobby Fischer. When I was younger I was really into chess, and I remembered reading how Fischer was basically the best US player in his time and regularly made Top 5 lists. I bought a few of his books and really appreciated his teaching methodology and play style.

Then they let Tobey Maguire portray him in the new movie about him, which was dumb af.
