A British study of more than 1,000 British and North America musicians from 1956 to 2005 by researchers at the Centre for Public Health at Liverpool John Moores University found 100 deaths.
Implications - The study, printed in the Journal of Epidemial Community health discovered that out of the 100 dead musicians that over a quarter of them were drug or alcohol related. Mark Bellis, the lead author, says that "the paper clearly describes a population of rock and pop stars who are at a disproportionate risk of alcohol and drug related deaths." The paper lists factors that contribute to their increased risk. Those factors include stress, high exposure and easy access to substances as well as the downfall into obscurity.
