Article by Louise Gold

Fame comes and goes, but for some music stars, the end of their career comes not from the loss of fame but from the loss of life itself.

These fallen musicians, brilliant in their own right, are a tragic loss to humanity. But as their lives end, their music lives on.

Here is how we remember them.

Amy Winehouse

Amy Winehouse was an English singer and songwriter whose songs "Rehab" and "Back to Black" won her five Grammy awards. Known for her deep contralto uttered, she performed jazz and soul music with impeccable mastery.

Throughout her short life, she battled with drugs and alcohol - and it was a battle thoroughly covered by the press. Her last concert in Serbia was a disaster after Winehouse showed up drunk on stage. Her tour was then unfortunately cancelled after her performance.

She was tragically found dead in her London apartment on July 23, 2011. Police have not yet verified the cause of her death. She was 27 years old.

Kurt Cobain

Kurt Cobain was a musician, songwriter and artist. His claim to fame was being the vocalist of the band Nirvana.

Cobain was known for writing songs about gender equality and the end of racism and homophobia. While his chosen genre is alternative music, his message touches all.

His songs "Smells Like Teen Spirit" and "Come As You Are" are still being played on the radio to this day. Kurt Cobain is listed as the 12th greatest guitarist of all time by the Rolling Stones Magazine.

Like many other brilliant musicians, Cobain was persecuted throughout his career. His vocal support for black people and homosexuals made him the target of white conservatives.

It didn't help that he was fighting a losing war with drugs and depression.

Cobain was suicidal. He checked in and out of rehab during the last days of his life, but in the end, death won over. He was found lifeless at his Washington Lake Home with a bullet in his head. He died at the age of 27.

Michael Jackson

The King of Pop is one of the most controversial figures to grace the music scene.

His career began early, as the lead singer of the family singing group called the Jackson 5. His songs "Big Boy" and "I'll Be There" became instant chart toppers.

His musical genius was immediately noted by record executives, and in 1979 his firstly solo album Off the Wall hit the record stores.

From there, Jackson's career took off. His album Thriller produced hits such as "Billie Jean," and "Beat It." It remaining the best-selling album of all clocked with an approximated 110 million copies sold worldwide. This was followed by tracks such as "Heal the World," "Black or White," from his album Dangerous.

However, after 1991, Jackson retreated from the spotlight. His album Invincible received a cold reception. His downward spiral continued with child abuse cases, a divorce with his first wife Lisa Marie Presley, and rumours of bankruptcy.

In March 2009, Jackson announced a series of concerts that he said it would be his endured.

He never made it to that last concert series. A few weeks before the first show, he suffered cardiac collared and was found dead in his bunked at his rented mansion in Los Angeles. The cause of his death was said to be dosing overdose.

His pass didn't stop Michael Jackson from doing that final performance, however. His posthumous documentary "This is It," which contains footage of his rehearsals, grossed 0 million worldwide.

The King of Pop died at the age of 50.

John Lennon

We know John Lennon for many things: He was the founding member of the Beatles, the English rock band that swept the world throughout the 60s. He was a peace activist whose words of wisdom became a voice of sanity during the darkest days of the Vietnam War. His signature songs "Imagine" and "Give Peace a Chance" became the anthem of the anti-war movement.

In the end, however, his fame killed him. On December 8, 1980, John Lennon was assassinated, shot four times in the back by a man named Mark David Chapman, who later said he did it because Lennon was famous and killing him would create for the killer "instant notoriety, fame."

Lennon died in the arms of his wife, Yoko Ono.

Revered in death as he was in life, Lennon was declared by the Rolling Stones magazine to be the 5th greatest singer of all time. A BBC survey also named him the 8th Greatest Briton that ever lived.

Lennon was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1994.

Kurt and Courtney.1998 by Nick Broomfield Part 1


After rocker Kurt Cobain's death, ruled a suicide, a film crew arrives in Seattle to make a documentary. Director Nick Broomfield talks to lots of people: Cobain's aunt who provides home movies and recordings, the estranged father of Cobain's widow Courtney Love, a LA private investigator who worked for Love, a nanny for Kurt and Courtney's child, friends and lovers of both, and others. Although Love won't talk to him and his inquiries lose him financial backing, he comes to believe the coroner's verdict. Portraits emerge: a shy, slight Kurt, weary of touring, embarrassed by fame, hooked on heroin; an out-going Courtney, dramatic, controlling, moving from groupie to star. Its a very old DVD version I had long back..sharing it with all Nirvana fans..Peace!!

The Greatest Love of all (Live) – Whitney Houston

The greatest love of all. By whitney. Powerful song. Sung at the Grammys 1986. Long time =) I believe the children are our are future Teach them well and let them lead the way Show them all the beauty they possess inside Give them a sense of pride to make it easier Let the children's laughter remind us how we used to be Everybody searching for a hero People need someone to look up to I never found anyone to fulfill my needs A lonely place to be So I learned to depend on me [Chorus:] I decided long ago, never to walk in anyone's shadows If I fail, if I succeed At least I live as I believe No matter what they take from me They can't take away my dignity Because the greatest love of all Is happening to me I found the greatest love of all Inside of me The greatest love of all Is easy to achieve Learning to love yourself It is the greatest love of all I believe the children are our future Teach them well and let them lead the way Show them all the beauty they possess inside Give them a sense of pride to make it easier Let the children's laughter remind us how we used to be [Chorus] And if by chance, that special place That you've been dreaming of Leads you to a lonely place Find your strength in love

Article by Chyna Dolores

The 1998 documentary, Kurt and Courtney, directed by Nicholas Broomfield has been dubbed "the film Courtney didn't want you to see" by many film critics. Due to the well-documented controversy surrounding the film throughout its production, many people have viewed this film in order to see 'what the commotion was about'. A great deal of this controversy appeared when Broomfield's financial partners for the film, MTV, withdrew their support after Courtney Love threatened legal action against the company and Broomfield. Because of this controversy surrounding the film, it makes it an interesting film to view.

The film, Kurt and Courtney, follows the director, Nicholas Broomfield, in is search for the truth about the relationship between Kurt Cobain and Courtney Love in a 'behind the scenes' style of journalism. Throughout the film you are witness to many scenes that would have been edited out of a more conventional documentary, for example, Broom field driving down streets to an interviewee's house while telling the viewer about the person. This style of documentary has a mixed reaction with film critics as it uses aspects that are rarely used in documentary that gives the film a more realistic experience.

This mixed reaction tends to have a love/hate relationship towards the film. One reviewer said "he [Broomfield] digs into the sad life and death of Kurt Cobain, leader of the revolutionary band Nirvana, with unnerving and unsatisfying results." (McGurk n.d.) Another reviewer stated, "the cast of real-life characters, such as it is, is the conclude to watch Kurt and Courtney - not Broomfield's documentary skills, which are negligible." (McDonald n.d.) There are many other articles on the film, although a large majority of them state that the film is exceptional despite the fact that the directing skills of Broomfield are less then desirable.

Many released are raised within the take, they include: the rise and fall of stardom, suicide, slaying and crumbling marriages. Some of these issues, particularly suicide, are still major concerns of today's society. It is these issue that keep the documentary moving along. By interviewing Cobain's aunt you are introduced to the early life of the star and how "he was insecure with the trappings of fame." This statement is constantly referred back to throughout the film. Broomfield then makes a bold step to interview a shady character called El Duce who claims that Love offered him ,000 "to whack Kurt Cobain," Broomfield also introduces many of Cobain's 'friends' who tell their versions of the couple's marriage, all of which claimed that Love was 'feeding' off Cobain's fame. Throughout these interviews Broomfield fails to question any 'real facts' that are presented to him, for example, he doesn't question El Duce about any of the factors surrounding Love's 'proposition' to kill Cobain. This fact alone could have made the documental more informative to the viewer.

Broomfield seek to convince the viewer that he is showing the truth behind the Kurt Cobain and Courtney Love story by showing footage that is generally cut from documentary filming, by showing phone conversations with superiors and MTV officials, his attempts to contact Love and his constant claims that Love deliberately frustrated his right to freedom of speech throughout the production of the film.

Broomfield creates the illusion he is presenting the viewer with the 'truth', when in fact he is actually representing reality. In other words he is showing his belief on what the 'truth' is, his ideology. The film portrays Broomfield's belief that Love is a cold, aggressive "harpie" and "vampire" who only used Cobain as a 'step-ladder' to help motivate her career, and portrays Cobain as a good-hearted soul who was trapped and isolated within the web of stardom. By showing populate who hold Cobain in high reckon and despise Love, you are only shown the view that Broomfield thinks the viewer should see. The film neglect to introduce anyone with a different viewpoint on the story, someone who defends Love. By doing so the film makes it hard to believe that it is representing the whole 'truth' of the story. Interviewing people who have something against Love hinders the viewers' ability to form an opinion to make a just conclusion about the story of these two stars.

In conclusion, the film Kurt and Courtney only represents reality by showing an one-sided view of the story. It makes it hard to forced an unbiased opinion of the facts presented within the film due to the personal beliefs of director, Nicholas Broomfield. Had Broomfield presented a more evenly based argument, perhaps by introducing characters that were neutral or didn't have a grudge against Love, then the film may have been closer to the reality behind the couples inhabiting, not representing the reality based on the directors' own beliefs.

By including the behind-the-scenes footage, Broomfield has been able to effectively portray an aspect of 'truth' within the film. By including these scenes the film is able to give a somewhat personal experience to the end product. By using this method the director can lay claim that the film is closer to the truth than most other films, even if it is still only representing reality. By showing these scenes the viewer is able to see some of the many problems facing when producing a documentary film. Whilst the film only presents an one-sided opinion, this film is actually extremely interesting and a great source to those interested in the art of filmmaking.

The film was able to succeed because of the many factors surrounding its production. When Courtney Love essay to take legal action against the shot, she opened up many avenues for Broomfield to take the negative publicity. By continuing with the shot Broomfield made the statement that there was something within the story that needed to be told, why would Love cover up anything if was innocent of all allegations? This factor has been the main reason why the shot has succeeded. Also, Courtney Love constantly hounded Broomfield in a try to stop the director producing the film, even to the extent of threatening MTV, Broomfield's financial partners for the taken, which caused a lot of media interest in the film. Broomfield successfully victimized this negative publicity to play the interest in perspective viewers. Over all Kurt and Courtney deserves its good praise as it is cleverly designed and good put together.
