Elvis,Nick Drake,Jeff Buckley,Keith Moon,Marylin Monroe,John Lennon.

(in no particular order - I won't rate imprtance of their death just now)

So - I've got loads of shit on the net.Just type in rg paddler into google - you'll see.
But if I died tomorrow of a drugs overdose would I go down as a legend?

Whats THAT all about?

I think you have to be famous when you die to go out as a legend, so no, you are not ready yet

Nick Drake wasn't famous - he never even did live performances - he couldn't stand it.

You mean - I should die? That's a refreshing change - it's usually somebody on a forum whos threatening suicide.No - I'm quite happy thank you.

Theres no-one to compete with on google - apart from some canoe company who advertise 'paddling'

Ok - I got some of it - a prolific american poet whom they found 40 volumes of work when she died - but I couldn't find anywhere why she was alone so much - and how she died - any clues?

I haven't read any of her stuff - yet - but I shall.1830's.Thank you
