* Chris "Kao Megura" [=McDonald=], possibly one of the most famous FAQ writers ever known, died in 2004 due to unknown cases and his family refuses to give the reason of his death to this date. Unlike many other cases of this trope, it's ''not'' the fact of his death the most saddest thing of all, but ''how'' he died: basically he dissapeared from the face of the Earth and one, not even the ones that could have know him, could give a good reason about the way he died. This has caused lots of speculation about his demise, being the most popular one suicide.

* Music/TomPetty died suddenly on October 2, 2017, only a week after he wrapped up his 40th anniversary tour with the Heartbreakers, who subsequently dissolved. In his last interviews, Tom said that the tour would probably be "the last big one". Although it's unclear if he was in the middle of working on anything right before he died, he did have plans for 2018 and beyond, including:
** A 2018 solo tour in which he performed his 1994 ''Wildflowers'' album in its entirety
** A follow-up to the Heartbreakers' ''Hypnotic Eye'', as well as a third Mudcrutch record, were intended to eventually be recorded.
** Right after his 40th anniversary tour wrapped, he planned to head into the studio to produce the second album by Los Angeles garage rock band The Shelters, who he raved about in his final interview.
