wow what can i say very informative for me and amazing that they all die at the age of 27 with the questions hanging like why? and why so young? what about their dreams? most of them committed suicide due to drugs, but what surprises me were the quotes.

Interesting. The words of some songs are really profound. And because they are set to music they are all the more meaningful. They all died young? I hope people continue to listen to their songs. I love the old songs .. I collect cassette tapes and still have a tape recorder!
