In his book, The Encyclopedia of Dead Rock Stars, rock historian Jeremy Simmonds writes, “When the last moment [of life] does arrive, even the most articulate [musicians] can struggle to find the right words.” Simmonds lists the following last words of famous contemporary musicians:

Amy Winehouse, the British singer who died in 2011, tweeted her last words: “Oinka Oinka Oinka why you awake.”

Terry Kath, the Chicago guitarist who died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound, said: “Don’t worry—it’s not loaded, see?”

Michael Jackson: “I’d like to have some milk. Please, please give me some more.”

Kurt Cobain: “I don’t have the passion any more, and so remember, it’s better to burn out than to fade away. Peace, love, empathy.”

Barry White told his nurse, “Leave me alone, I’m fine.”

The Beatles George Harrison said, “Love one another.”

Bob Marley: “Money can’t buy life.”

Bo Diddley: “I’m goin’ to heaven! I’m comin’ home.”

Shortly before her death, Whitney Houston said, “You know, he’s so cool. I really want to see Jesus.”
