25. You get 10 choices when you make a poll, how about including Jim Morrison?
I voted Lennon, btw. His senseless murder was a whole other level of awful than the demises of those who drugged and drank themselves to death. And Lennon's death was the only one for which I truly, literally wept.

Still do, sometimes... :cry:
