Researchers have found new evidence that rock stars were more likely to die prematurely!!!

Rock stars — notorious for their “crash and burn” lifestyles — really are more likely than other people to die before reaching old age.

A study of more than 1,000 mainly British and North American artists, spanning the era from Elvis Presley to rapper Eminem, found they were two to three times more likely to suffer a premature death than the general population.

Between 1956 and 2005 there were 100 deaths among the 1,064 musicians examined by researchers at the Centre for Public Health at Liverpool John Moores University.

It found that musicians were most at risk in the first five years after achieving fame, with death rates more than three times higher than normal. [Quoted from msnbc]
