Robert Johnson influenced musicians, from Bob Dylan to the Rolling Stones. He lived in a rural area in Mississippi and dreamed of being a star. He was instructed to take his guitar to a crossroad, where he would sell his soul to the devil. He died in 1938 at the age of 27, after drinking poisoned whisky.
Lynyrd Skynyrd became really famous in 1973, after several members of the band - including the lead singer and songwriter Ronnie Van Zant - died in a plane accident. The tragedy happened only three days after the release of "Street Survivor". The cover of that album pictured the band in the midst of a fire.
In 1985, teenager John McCollum comitted suicide while listening to Ozzy Osbourne's song "Suicide Solution", which talks about the dangers of alchool abuse. The kid's parents filed a suit against Osbourne, alleging that the lyrics had influenced him.

Robert Plant was involved in several tragic events in the 70s. He faced serious problems with his voice after recordings of "Houses Of The Holy", and was involved in a car accident in Greece that injured members of his family. In 1977 his 6-year-old son Karac couldn't fight an infection and died. Many of Led Zepelin's fans believe that the band's bad luck is associated with their practice of black magic.
The creative process of "The Bedlam in Goliath" - forth and most recent album of The Mars Volta - was filled with creepy incidents. According to the group, it's all because of a Ouija board that Rodríguez-López bought during a trip to Jerusalem. From that point, the drummer left the band in the middle of a tour, the vocalist needed a foot surgery, the studio flooded and many records disappeared.
"Too Tough To Die" is a song of an album by the same name released in 1984. It's a tribute to Johnny Ramone. The guitar player of the legendary punk band was supposedly involved in a bar fight in 1983, where he took so many punches and kicks in the head that he woke up in the hospital after a complicated surgery to recover his fractured skull.
