Makes Me Sad

Musicians who's artistic vision was cut short. The artists in this list have put out rincredible classics yet.. what direction could they have taken from there? Makes me sad rthat we can never know.
1Dennis Wilson
Pacific Ocean Blue

This story makes me sad the most. Too me Dennis Wilson has more soul and sadness in his voice than any other singer I've ever heard. Example: http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=xKcrdGULvbw. His sadness stemmed from an abusive father, interactions with Charles Manson, Alcohol, and in my opinion a sociopathic bandmate by the name of Mike Love. All put together created something beautiful in the way he sang. Originally a drummer for the Beach Boys and later a prime songwriter for the group, which I relate to because I'm a drummer but also a singer and guitarist. He died early due to a drowning accident as a result of his alcoholism. He had only put out this one solo album and had started a second unfinished album called 'Bambu'. All I hear in these both efforts is great potential. Who knows what incredible music he would have put out today if he were still alive.
2Jeff Buckley

Here is an obvious one and I'm sure a fan favorite on sputnik and the world. Put out one incredible classic and a second unfinished sketch of an album which is great too. Coincedentally he too drowned. While this makes me sad, we did get a classic effort from him but I still don't think that it's enough. He was an artist with many more tricks up his sleeve and wanted to challenge himself and change his sound. It could be that he would have put out something even greater than 'Grace'. It could be. Shit just makes me sad.
3Brian Wilson

No Brian Wilson (brother of Dennis Wilson) did not die. This guy is still putting out music to this day, great music. The man behind The Beach Boys, and the man that sadly lost his mind. After 'Pet Sounds' was finished Brian went back into the studio to create his masterpiece 'Smile'. But unfortunatly all the pressure he put on himself got the best of him and he fucking lost it. He really was never the same sadly and Smile was left unfinished and the sessions were only just released in 2011. Even though he has great albums under his belt, it still makes me sad. After his breakdown the rest of the Beach Boys took the songwriting role and made some great material even with a shattered Brian Wilson. But what would it've been like if he wouldn't have gone nuts? Whay kind of incredible sounds would the group as a whole create? God only knows. I mean the beatles were pumping out great album after great album. I believe this would have been the same case with the beach boys. 'Pet Sounds' was the true beginning of the Beach Boys artistic vision as was 'Rubber Soul'. So this whole scenario just makes me sad.
4 Band

There are obvious others, but these are those that I care about the most. Care to add?
