THE ROCK N' ROLL DEATH LIST!

Psalms 55:23, “But thou, O God, shalt bring them down into the pit of destruction: bloody and deceitful men shall not live out half their days; but I will trust in thee.”

While these rockers gave their lives for Rock-N-Roll, they also fulfilled the passage in Romans 6:23, "The wages of sin is DEATH..."  You'll notice the list has 28 "Rockers" who committed suicide and 39 who died of alcohol and drug abuse. Furthermore, only one person died of "old age" while the rest died "before their time" (Ecclesiastes 7:17).

The Rock 'N' Roll Lifestyle May Kill You Too!

For their rock is not as our Rock,. . .
Deuteronomy 32:31

5 Behold, God is mighty, and despiseth not any: he is mighty in strength and wisdom.
6 He preserveth not the life of the wicked . . .
14 They DIE in youth, and their life is among the unclean.
Job 36:5,6,14

As righteousness tendeth to life: so he that pursueth evil pursueth it to his own DEATH. Proverbs 11:19

There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of DEATH.
Proverbs 14:12

For the wages of sin is DEATH; BUT the gift of God is eternal LIFE through Jesus Christ our Lord.
Romans 6:23

He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting LIFE: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life;
but the WRATH of God ABIDETH ON HIM. John 3:36
