This page is a list of all the stars that are sadly lost forever.
They left us here on earth too soon. Fortunatelly we can still listen to
their fantastic music. I suppose they all have a great party in heaven...

Names marked in different color are the most recent ones :-(

Paul Hester, drummer in Crowded House, was found dead on March 26, 2005 near his home in Melbourne, Australia. He was 46. He hanged himself from a tree in a nearby park.
"Don't Dream It's Over" was one of their biggest hits and it's a band I personally listen to a lot.

"It's a funny thing, isn't it, but people will stab other people. I don't know why, I don't know what pleasure they get from it. Personally, I like kissing other people, but I don't like stabbing them." -Paul Hester
