This playact had a major impact on his musical evolution; he later reflected:.

I'm a big fan of s Elvis when he would go on stage and scare people because he was a force and girls would go nuts! You can say the same thing for Prince or The Police. It's just guys who know that people are here to see a show, so I watch those guys and I love studying them because I'm a fan.

On the night of February 18, , Bon Scott went out for drinks in London at a club then called the Music Machine, where he downed measure after measure of Scotch whiskey.

During the night, suffering alcohol poisoning, he died in his sleep after asphyxiating on his own vomit. He was 33 years old. When the others realized that the strange man was indeed their erstwhile leader, now a shadow of his former self, they were horrified.

Waters was even reduced to tears. Syd willingly told the band he was happy to lend his services to them, but it was clear to all present that he was in no shape to perform in a band with anyone.

He had, in fact, already withdrawn from performing and recording music the year before following an abortive attempt at a solo recording. After that session, none of the members of Pink Floyd would see Syd again, as he would eventually permanently retreat to his hometown of Cambridge, England, where he died in from complications of diabetes at age In September , Janis Joplin, a diminutive singer with a big bluesy voice and attitude to match, traveled to Hollywood with the Full Tilt Boogie Band to record Pearl.

It was a long-player that would become her most polished and successful recording ever, holding the 1 spot on the Billboard for nine weeks. Although Janis had been using heroin during this period, the morale in the studio was undoubtedly high. Sadly, Janis did not get a chance to enjoy this success. In fact, she did not even get to finish the album that would consolidate her legendary reputation.

These proved to be the final vocal performances she ever committed to tape. She then retired to the Landmark Motor Hotel, where she had been staying since her arrival in California.

The next day, Janis was conspicuously absent at the studio, much to the concern of Paul Rothchild. In the parking lot, he saw her pyschedelically-painted Porsche rag-top convertible, and when he stepped inside room , he found Janis lying dead on the floor between her bed and the table beside it with a fresh needle mark in her arm.

She had a cigarette that had burned down to the filter in one hand and four dollar bills in the other. As she fell forward in her death throes, she had struck her face on the bedside table, bloodying her lip. Although Pearl ended up being incomplete, it became her best-selling album upon its release in January Sadly, Whitten was never able to escape his demons.

Though by he had been drafted to play guitar on the tour to support Harvest , he showed up to rehearsals strung out on junk and unable to keep up with the rest of the band. Later that night, Whitten fatally overdosed on a lethal mixture of Valium and alcohol, which he had been using to combat heroin withdrawal symptoms. Neil Young felt a great deal of personal responsibility for years afterward. He learned to play the saxophone, clarinet, and piano while a pupil at Marlborough College, later taking up guitar at the age of Just before the end of his teens, he began gigging in coffeehouses in and around London and was discovered by Ashley Hutchings , who was playing bass in the English folk-rock group Fairport Convention at the time.
