Getting it kickstarted a little early since I'll more than likely be elsewhere tomorrow.

This week involves your favorite celebrity who has made the trip to the great beyond, and who you miss the most.

Oh man, I went into a full-blown depression when I heard he died in a plane (helicopter?) crash. I was on a long road trip to Vermont, and a local radio station reported the news.

So we're talking about all-time dead celebrities?
So did I. I was like 14 at the time and played guitar (still pick it up on occasion) and worshiped SRV.

Yes, pretty much all-time.

Stevie had played Toledo, and I couldn't go, so I thought I'd just see him next time around.
The next year, I saw Clapton. Stevie came out and played 3 songs with Eric. I was floored, and pissed that I didn't see him when I had the chance. A few months later, he died in the helicopter crash.

My first thought was Harris Wittles. He wasn't that famous but his death really affected me.

But I gotta go with a musician I loved. Jerry or Kurt.
