John Lennon

John Lennon was born in England, and he was shot and killed in New York. He was with The Beatles and his band became the largest ever rock band. Lennon left the group and began making solo albums or, sometimes duets with his wife Yoko Ono. Lennon spoke his mind and he was a true advocate for world peace. Lennon passed away at the age of 40. He suffered a fatal shot in the back. My favorite song by Lennon has got to be Imagine, which summed up John Lennon in a nutshell. Lennon was a mainstream star and he was always on television or in magazines. He gave interviews in places such as a king size bed with him and Yoko Ono talking with the press. He seemed real common, almost non-celebrity like but, at the same time, he was so much in the spotlight. Mr. Lennon always spoke his mind and stood up for what he loved and cared for. You just have to respect that. You can agree to diagree without killing someone.

Lennon will be sorely missed and his music and message will live on forever. R.I.P. Mr. Lennon.

Chris Farley

Chris Farley was born in Wisconsin, and he died of a cocaine and morphine overdose in Chicago, Illinois. Farley was in ten films but, he is well known for his time on Saturday Night Live. His skits were hilarious and his physical jokes and expression were timeless. Farley commanded center stage every time the cameras were rolling. Farley passed on at the age of 33. My favorite movie with Chris Farley is Tommy Boy, which had a lot of in your face comedy. Farley was known for funny faces and his own brand of slapstick comedy.

On a personal note, I hate to see someone like Farley who is young and talented and has the world in front of them, and yet, they don't know it.

Farley's brand of humor and his friendliness will be missed and he will live on through his television appearances. R.I.P. Mr. Farley.

Tupac Shakur

Tupac Shakur was born in New York and was shot and killed in Las Vegas, Nevada. Tupac is considered the best rap artist in history. Tupac had rough gangster music and club tunes, and the topic of love but, he also had social and political issues tied into his music. Before his death, he completed 5 films, which showed he was multi-talented. 2Pac died at the young age 25. My favorite 2Pac song is Hell Razor. Tupac always seemed to put his heart and soul into his songs.

It seems like everyone loves his music.

Tupac Shakur had some crude lyrics but, sometimes his music really had a message of hope. His music was and still is listened to by all different races and class of people. He will be remembered through his musical exploits as well as his film appearances. He was just an all around like-able guy.

R.I.P. Mr. Shakur.

Brandon Lee

Brandon Lee was born in California and was shot and killed in North Carolina on a movie set. Lee was the son of Kung Fu legend Bruce Lee. He acted in seven films, two of which were big hits in America, Rapid Fire and The Crow. He died tragically at age 28. My favorite film starring Brandon Lee is The Crow, which was also his last. Lee actually knew the martial arts well from growing up around it.

Brandon Lee will be remembered as a martial arts film legend and a nice and humble gentleman. R.I.P. Mr. Lee.

Kurt Cobain

Kurt Cobain, was born in Washington and he shot and killed himself in Seattle, Washington. From 1982 until his death in 1994 Cobain rocked the music world with his grunge band Nirvana. He had three very successful alternative albums to go along with unreleased music as well. My favorite song by Nirvana is Smells Like Teen Spirit.

Kurt Cobain really put his heart and soul into his music and will be remembered for some great music and many hits. R.I.P. Mr. Cobain.

      Good list. I was just thinking about John Lennon the other day. He died when I was 15 and he seemed so old then. But he was only 40, younger than I am now. He had so much more to give the world, as did all of these people.

      they were also major people thats just it they advocated a change and left too soon. I can relate to tupac and I was 17 when he died. he to me signified that change was never going to happen and that it didnt matter your belief that this country freedom really wasnt free it made me question this country and their values. At all the times, the media decided what the people knew about the influential people, and yet what bothers me is the one that brought up social unrest the most was murdered and that was tupac shakur I became much more aware that there was a problem with the government. various leaks came to light since then andd it was for the afore mentioned that came to light too. I started to question things more critically, and I think that pac was trying to convey this but so was lennon for that matter true active weed smokers true but I think it did not give them the same opinion as the powers that be and not god thats why they were gone too soon
