Why did you call the list "the unforgiving"? did you mean "unforgettable"?

Your right... wrong title - I fix it

Oh, Chuck. I think he is the musician I mourn the most.

Not a single release by Death was bad. He left us with a flawless victory.
Anyway, I believe he would have continued making excellent albums if he lived.

I think so too. He was by far, a great metal musician!

Done it ..and by the way - I'm open for suggestions, if you or another user don't see a name of a metal or rock musician (all known or not so) that belongs to this list, write if you want.

Andrew McDermott
Richard Wright (keyboardist of Pink Floyd) - I felt depressed when I found out he died. The same happened with Mac, ex. vocalist of Threshold.
Cuca Beludo - 28.03.2012 at 22:16  
Great list, you have my vote especially for the numbers 7 and 2....

Thanks for the tip, I add them immediately

Hey Nick! Are you accepting suggestions for (totally) non-related-metal-musicians? There's a well-know act from the 90's missing on the list...

Yes, but only if the musicians are related with rock music
JohnDoe - 05.04.2012 at 08:13  
I've just seen Keith Moon in your list; what a great drummer he was/is!
JohnDoe - 05.04.2012 at 08:14  
Tommy Bolin?

Added!

David Byron - first vocalist of Uriah Heep, amazing vocals! (Gary Thain, bassist of Uriah Heep, sadly died in 1975 if I remember right).

Phil Lynott of Thin Lizzy deserves to be mentioned, checked your list twice, did not see him, but then again my eyes are not what they used to be.

Yes, but only if the musicians are related with rock music


But of course he is! What about Kurt Cobain?

EDIT: Forget. When I asked he wasn't featured on the list, now he is.
JohnDoe - 11.04.2012 at 23:58  
If you have 60s musicians already, might as well put Brian Jones (of Rolling Stones) and Janis Joplin

No problem .. I was kinda shocked when I looked at the list and don't see Kurt's name, so I added him at once with Stanley Layne / both are legends / ...

As you see in the list, there we have rock/metal musicians from every decade, so, yes - I puted them

Actually the only order is that - metal musicians are above rock / because this is a Metal site /.
