A recently-published study in the Journal of Epidemial Community Health, compiled by researchers at the Center for Public Health at Liverpool John Moores University, has determined that rock stars are more likely than other people to die before reaching old age — brilliant! “More than 1,000 British and North American artists, spanning the era from Elvis Presley to rapper Eminem, found they were two to three times more likely to suffer a premature death than the general population.” Nope, not a put-on.
