1 Find A Grave.com on Sun Jul 31, 2011 9:22 am

This is a site that I have belonged to for years, it is called Find A Grave.com
Here you can get great information as well as pictures of most musicians final resting places. If it is anybody famous you more than likely will find them here, with bio and pictures in the Famous People Search. You can also track your own family burials here. I got involved with them when I was documenting the tallest tombstone in the U.S. Which is 15 stories high, it was suspected to be the tallest but nobody did a final documentation until I had people from Find A Grave.com search the country and none was found higher than the tomb of Thomas Wiltberger Evans. You guy's did not know that I love that kind of stuff, I love graveyards because of the architecture and the history of them that are there. I have always been that way. But anyway you can find mostly all your hero's here, from Buddy Rich to Sam Cook, to Jimi Hendrix to all the movie stars, complete with some kind of bio. I just looked up Miles Davis this morning.

I had ran across this site a few years ago, and even though it is called The Dead Rock Stars Club, it catalogs everybody from Jazz to Punk. If you are looking for a little info on music greats and not so greats death dates this is the place.

Spanky... with all respect, but I wonder how this is motivating your musical endeavors beyond the morbid. Of course we honor those coming before us, but we're still ALIVE! Arrow

Well Suss this has nothing to do with my music, it is just another side of me. millions of people find this stuff interesting. I was going to go to a mortuary science school, but my drug use and alcoholism got in the way years ago. Many find this stuff appalling and many don't, like me. Very Happy And also many people like knowing where their hero's are and what put them there. If I want to see where Sammy Davis is, I can look at his grave right from my living room. And when I do go to these places I'll look at where they have been lain, and say to myself, man you were one heck of a entertainer and now you have been silenced, and that's it. And if I have never met my hero's, seeing where they are is as close as I will ever get to them. Well that's about all the defending myself that I'll do on this one. Very Happy Oh yeah and here is a site for all deceased drummers.

Understood my friend. Go for it. I apologize for misunderstanding your motivations.
