With tremendous success comes celebrity, fame, money, and, in many instances, temptation and emotional trauma. Many musical artists over the years have left us way too soon, their lives ending prematurely in tragedy. You’ve perhaps heard of the 27 Club, a collection of musicians, actors, and artists who met their maker at the tender age of 27. (Many members of the 27 Club are unfortunately on this list.) You’ll need a tissue and a heavy heart handy as you look back at these musicians who died before 30. What’s remarkable, and a testament to their brilliance, is how much they achieved in such a short period of time. We’ve been missing them for years, and we’ll continue to do so.
