According to a recent study done by a group of UK researchers, rock stars do live faster (and die younger) after all. In this comparative analysis of the survival rate of the general population and nearly 1,500 musicians in North American and Europe, American artists were the hardest hit: only 2/3 of the stars were still alive 40 years after their first big break, compared to 80 percent of the normal population at similar ages.
