I don’t know two of them. Top, from left, #5 and, 2nd line, from left #2.
Don’t give them away on the comments section, email me.
Steve McQueen #5
Testor15…you don’t read well OR details aren’t your “thing”…he said NOT to give away the answer…to email him!
There are a few I’m not sure of but the majority I know.
And the quote…Spot On!
How about an answer key one week from now?
I’m also unsure on row 2, face 2.
Okay, I am unsure about 2 now;
R1: John Lennon, Morrison, Hendrix, Elvis, McQueen, Monroe
R2: Cobain, ?, Mercury, Marley, Keith Moon, James Dean
R3: Joplin, Thompson, Viscious, ? Belushi, Carlin
Monroe’s life was sad. Had she been born 10 years later, she’d not been so exploited for her sexuality. She was modest by today’s standards. Not at all my type but (like DiMaggio) I would have known her to try and protect her.
Didn’t discover Marley until a few years ago. I use his music to come down from anxious stressful days.
Drugs are the common denominator here.
R2- bill hicks
r3- ian curtis (joy division)
Isn’t that Ian Curtis next to Sid?
Yes, it is – Ian Curtis of Joy Division.
Mike, funny, I just told testor a little bit ago, ‘I think the guy in r3 is some alternative dude.’
There is a lot of talent there, but it is somewhat sad that these are the people we look to as influential so many years (or even decades in some cases) after their deaths.
I’d much prefer to honor people like Martin Luther King, Jr, Jonas Salk, Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Jefferson, and Nikola Tesla. Those are the people who made a lasting impression and improved society much more than actors and musicians… and I don’t think any of them died due to a drug overdose either.
Well, most of those in that pic didn’t die of drugs either.
You’re right Scott – technically, only 8 of the 18 died from drugs.
R1: Shot/Murdered, Drugs, Probably Drugs, Drugs, Cancer, Drugs
R2: Suicide (while on drugs), Cancer, AIDS, Cancer, Drugs, Auto Accident
R3: Drugs, Suicide, Drugs, Suicide, Drugs, Heart Failure
Who would have thought that George Carlin would be the one to die from old age / natural causes?
Each person in the picture has their place; while I agree with Craig’s sentiment, if one compares the amazement of hearing “Love Will Tear Us Apart” by R3 #4 ( Ian Curtis ), or getting a shot for a polio vaccine, the former will be remembered more fondly. The latter obviously has a far greater effect on our lives, but music, acting, and comedy are sexy. A/C and Polio aren’t. Oh Well.
You’re being kind of a square, Craig.
Mike, I would argue that without people like many of those listed above the inspiration for the great thinking that leads to the creation of polo vaccine and A/C wouldn’t have happened. I know in my life Lennon, carlin, hunter s Thompson and even untalented Sidney made me question my world view.
Scott is right. I love punk rock music, it gives me a perspective I don’t get from other elements in my life, and that is comforting. Almost serene.
BTW, Hud, going to Wilco tomorrow in SC? I have space in my car if you want to hitch a ride . . . .
I wish I was. I’m in the middle of Boxing shit for new carpet on Monday.
