I Hope I Die Before I Get Old

Researchers at the Centre for Public Health at Liverpool John Moores University found that, shockingly, rock stars are more likely to die before reaching old age than the rest of us, mostly thanks to alcohol and drug abuse. While for British rockers the risk of dying remains high until about 25 years after their first success, in the U.S. aging musicians are almost twice as likely to suffer a premature death, particularly from heart attack or stroke. The researchers say this could be related to the popularity of reunion tours in the U.S. which gives the musicians more years in which to enjoy an “unhealthy rock ā€™nā€™ roll lifestyle.” So remember, when they say it’s their Final Tour they may be telling the truth.
