Top 5 - Music Stars Who Choked to Death on Their Own Vomit

I'd rather choke to death on my own vomit than watch the debate tonight - a thought which got me thinking of this list. Jimi Hendrix headlines a list of musicians who choked to death on their own vomit.

1. Jimi Hendrix - guitar god
2. Bonn Scott - original lead singer for AC/DC
3. John Bohnam - drummer Led Zepplin
4. Tommy Dorsey - bandleader and brother of Jimmy Dorsey
5. Mamma Cass - rock myth has her choking on a ham sandwich which technically isn't vomit but since she really died of a heart attack anyway - I thought I'd toss her in at #5 just to round off the list.

Even though everyone knows how Bonn Scott died - his death certificate actually says "death by misadventure". Maybe that's because it was unclear if he choked on his own vomit. You can't dust for vomit you know.


  1. Mama Cass died in a bizarre gardening accident. The authorities said it was better left unsolved.

  2. That comment goes all the way to 11
