The year of her death hasn't been inscribed yet, so I imagine she's still alive.

^ Yeah, I didn't know that. Didn't know he was buried at sea either.I feel he deserves more than being just a name on a list -
and no mention of his captainship either
EDIT: yeah, perhaps you're right, Psy-Fi

^ That's a coincidence, Neapolitan! I particularly like Blind Willie McTell's headstone, which explains a lot in a few short words. It taught me his real name, and that he was just a 58-year-old youngster when he died.

^ "True dat" as some people say. Jim Morrison's grave must be one of the most famous in the rock pantheon. Something that makes specially sad imo is that the guy was buried so far from home. Pet_Sounds makes a valid point about Jim's poor neighbours, but I rather like all the graffitti and poor taste. Hey, that's rock 'n' roll, man!

.... which is why I also like Phil Lynott's, Trollheart; nothing says "rock fans were here" more than bits of garish junk left lying around - although having said that, those plectrums are a really touching tribute. From other guitarists I imagine.

Garden of Memories in Metairie, Louisiana. The final resting place of what was left of Gram Parsons after friends stole and tried to burn his body in Joshua Tree National Park in 1973, rests in a grave marked by a flat stone that features a bas-relief carving of the musician and a verse from “In My Hour of Darkness.”

"Here lies Gram Parsons, a country boy,
who could play a guitar like no other.
Now his soul soars through the air,
like a flying burrito brother."

I always thought this was kind of a cool symbol for the site where Buddy Holly died.



And here's the one honoring all three stars who died that night. Sadly, the pilot of the plane has been ignored.

^ Yes, it's a pity that the pilot has been forgotten. Perhaps you'll be the man to change that, next time you're in Clear Lake, Iowa, Janszoon!

Spoiler for one of many sad details from wikipedia:
Quote:
The tour began in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, on January 23, 1959. The amount of travel soon became a logistical problem. The distances between venues had not been properly considered when the performances were scheduled; instead of "circling" around the Midwest to each town, the tour zig-zagged with distances between cities over 400 miles. General Artists Corporation, the organization that booked the tour, later received considerable criticism for their seemingly total disregard for the conditions they forced the touring musicians to endure:

“ They didn't care. It was like they threw darts at a map ... The tour from hell -- that's what they named it -- and it's not a bad name."
Buddy Holly historian Bill Griggs


In many ways the impromtu memorials of fans, like that decorated fence, are more touching than more formal monuments. Here's a case in point: to me this is not so much a monument to Hendrix, the great guitarist, as it is a monument to his family's poor taste:-



On the other hand, for years, the tree where Marc Bolan lost his life was marked with nothing more than a few ribbons and flowers. I used to see it once in a while because it was only about 45 mins walk from where I used to live. One time I was walking past, and there were 3 girls sitting around cross-legged in a circle; perhaps it was an anniversary of some kind, but to my lasting regret I was too shy to go up and speak to them. Anyway, here's the headline and the tree:-

I bet no-one can beat the strange story of Gram Parsons' funeral! I didn't realise that he was only 26 when he died...
