I don't like musicians who kill themselves because suicide is wrong.

I guess the guy from Lagwagon, because he's the only person I can think of from a band I really like who offed themselves...

What? Suicide is wrong in any circumstance? Why? What if someone just doesn't seeing any reason to go on?

Richard Manuel and Brad Delp were the first to jump to mind.

Brad Delp

I'm not familiar with who he was as a person or anything, but I'd give you that. Definitely a sad loss.

I just now remembered Terry Kath. Terry Kath all the way. What an amazing musician. Though his suicide was most likely accidental.

Also, where are all the Pennywise fans?? JASON MATTHEW THIRSK. Lolz.

I was just about to say that. You're a post-thief.

I was never sure if Delp actually killed himself or not. I guess he did. I thought he may have just died for no reason. 'tis a shame. He had an incredible voice.

If suicide means either killed or driven to death by a fucked up, crazy psychotic bitch, then yeah, Kurt Cobain is my favorite.. Actually, I don't even like him..

YES

Nirvana fans annoy me. Kurt's low on the list for me because of his following. It's shallow but true.

The guy from Heatmiser stabbed himself in the stomach. That what Japanese soldiers used to do to regain honor. Fuck.

Derrick Plourde is my favorite punk rock drummer, and inspired perhaps my favorite (and horribly underated) punk rock album, Resolve by Lagwagon.

Undoubtedly Kurt.
Just because you're paranoid, don't mean they're not after you...

Nick Drake is indeed the only answer.

I feel like Elliott Smith is known more for his solo career than as "the guy from Heatmiser".
