    none of the above. they were all a bunch of drug addicts and drunks who helped ruin the lives of millions of adolescent children. If anyone other than a musician did what those guys did, you'd piss on their graves.

    No Buddy Holly?

    I would have to say based on your choices that Lennon was. I will also say that while I think his politics sucked, his music was good.

    The other three were tragedies of their own making. I liked Elvis the best of them all, and he was, at the time, the most popular of any of them.

    Hank Williams, Patsy Cline and Jim Reeves were as big a tragedy as any of those you have listed.

    I agree with Patsy and Jim Reeves. Personally Bon Scott and Otis are mine, followed closely by Sam Cooke..Of those mentioned, probably Lennon......

    In terms of a brilliant career of a man who was adding to music, I'd have to say that Hendrix's death was the greatest loss to the genre.

    Had he continued I expect he'd have migrated into Jazz, fusing jazz and electtric rock guitar.

    Now he'd have lost market share, because Rock was already rejecting him, but musically, I think he was just starting to mature into a serious musician.

    Lennon was truly a tragedy... not something he brought upon himself.. Hendrix, Morrison (as much as I love the Doors), Elvis, Janis, etc all brought it upon themselves
