C'mon. The world is clearly a better place with both Vince Neil and Gene Simmons in it. If we're going to wish death upon musicians, let's pick someone truly deserving, like Fred Durst or those fucking Jonas Brothers.

OK, I'll grant you that, that makes sense. I chose Vince Neil (because he's a dick and an easy target for this kind of hypothetical exercise), but Gene because a) his death would be a big deal and a shock, and b) there would be a legitimate mourning period from a significant portion of the population that even gives a fuck about music. What would be (and will be, mark my words) hilarious is if ever Kiss music is elevated to a status that it clearly isn't: art. Don't get me wrong; Kiss's music at times kicks ass. But even the dudes in Kiss stress that it's purely entertainment and showmanship; they have no illusions themselves that there's any art involved here. They tried art once, if I recall: Music From The Elder. So Gene got picked by me because he's such an unapologetic, shameless turd. But a wonderful showman along the lines of P.T. Barnum; I have this weird mixture of distate for the man and honest-to-God high respect for what he's accomplished.

But yeah, if Jonas Bros. or Fred Durst died of OD's, the mourning period would be intense, but brief. Kind of like their careers.
