CLIFF BURTON, RANDY RHOADS Among MAXIM Magazine's Top Rock Star Deaths

September 15, 2004

The Associated Press is reporting that Cliff Burton (METALLICA),Randy Rhoads (OZZY OSBOURNE),John Bonham (LED ZEPPELIN) and Kurt Cobain (NIRVANA) are among the musicians that made Maxim magazine's list of rock stars that have been the most "rock-starrish" even in death.

Cobain's suicide just makes the list at number 25.

Interestingly, number seven on the death list isn't even deceased — MÖTLEY CRÜE bassist Nikki Sixx makes the list because he was technically dead for two minutes after a heroin overdose.

And number one? Punk icon G.G. Allin, who was primarily known for defecating on stage. He died of a heroin overdose and fans posed for photos with his body at his funeral while shoving Jim Beam into his dead mouth.
