For your information, I am not talking about the Metallica song. Everyone seems to throw this out when I ask have you ever heard of the Four Horsemen.
The four Horsemen were a Southern rock band that peeked in the 1990's and then dissapeared after a series of tragedies that decimated the band. The drummer died of a drug overdose and the lead singer died in a motorcycle accident after being hit by a drunk driver.
Tragedy and rock and roll stardom seem to go hand in hand and one can only wonder what might have become of this band if the lives of two of their members had not been cut short.
They might also have simply self imploded since these bad boys had a tendency to live on the edge and spend quite a bit of time in jail thus delaying the release of some of their albums.
