James Marshall "Jimi" Hendrix (1942 - 1970) was a Rock musician. He was considered one of the greatest guitar players ever, but he unfortunately died very young. He had problems with Drugs, but that was not the cause of his death or was it?. He took to many sleeping pills one evening and literally choked in his barf (*yuck*).
