14 Rock Acts Who’ve Had Brushes With Death

Living the rock ‘n’ roll lifestyle is not always glamorous. From freak accidents to excessive partying, the stage and the road can be a dangerous place. We’ve seen musicians soldier on, taking the stage in spite of injuries or tragedies, proving they are the warriors we believe them to be. Never knowing when a show could be their last, these rockers came all too close to never seeing the stage, or anything or anyone else again.

We’ve lost quite a number of rock and metal musicians along the way, either to illness, tragedy or other circumstances. In this gallery, you will read about 14 Rock Acts Who’ve Had Brushes With Death and could have easily had their names listed among those who have left us. All coming close to the end, a few of these rockers┬áhave even been pronounced dead, some of them multiple times! Click through the gallery to find out all about it!
