* Mark E. Smith, the leader of prolific post-punk group Music/TheFall, died of cancer in the middle of their 2017-18 tour. Several shows on that tour - including what would have been the band's first American tour dates in a decade - postponed or canceled due to Smith's rapidly deteriorating healt Although he performed his final few shows from a wheelchair, and was [[{{Determinator}} still as lively and full of venom as ever]], video footage of those concerts show him to be exhausted, frequently out of breath or difficult to understand. Ultimately his health got so bad that the group had to scuttle several shows just before they were due to go on, including what would have been their final show on 17 November 2017.

** ''Just barely'' avoided by Creator/BrittanyMurphy's character Luanne Platter when the series ended in September 2009 (even though there were four episodes that FOX didn't air that ended up getting aired on Creator/AdultSwim and in syndication) - Murphy died of pneumonia (with secondary factors of iron-deficiency anemia and multiple drug intoxication, which led to cardiac arrest) in December of the same year, nixing any chance of a revival (unless Luanne was written out or replaced with another voice actress). The death of Tom Petty who voiced her husband Lucky may make a revival even more difficult.

* The ''Literature/WizBiz'' stories only have five books currently. Rick Cook went through heart surgery while writing the sixth book and when he had recovered, he found that he was no longer able to write fiction. Fragments of the book that had been written are available on his website. In 2013, after eye surgery, he concluded that his deteriorating eyesight has been the main obstacle and expressed hope he may return to writing fiction, so this may eventually turn out to be an aversion.

* Music/{{Negativland}} lost three of its founding members in two years. [[http://www.rollingstone.com/music/news/ian-allen-negativland-dead-at-56-20150122 Ian Allen]], who started it all, died of infection January 17, 2015 while hospitalized for routine heart surgery. He was only fifty-seven. Seven months later, on July 22, sound collage master and cultural jammer [[http://www.rollingstone.com/music/news/don-joyce-negativland-sound-collagist-and-radio-dj-dead-at-71-20150723 Don Joyce]] succumbed to heart failure, taking with him Crosley Bendix, C. Elliot Friday, Izzy Isn't and dozens more of the group's familiar characters. He was seventy-one. Don had hosted the avant-garde program ''Over the Edge'' on KPFA for over thirty years and there was serious talk of ending the show with him. Listeners called in asking surviving members to keep and evolve OTE in Don's memory. Jon "Wobbly" Leidecker and Rob "K-Rob" Cole are now in charge ([[https://kpfa.org/program/over-the-edge/ hear their shows here]]), and a [[https://archive.org/details/ote near-complete library of Don's shows]] is preserved at the Internet Archive. Don's final appearance is on the group's October 2016 CD, ''[[http://www.negativland.com/shop/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=87 Chopping Channel]]''. The first few hundred buyers also received a small container of Don's ashes. In April 2016, [[http://www.rollingstone.com/music/news/richard-lyons-negativland-founder-dead-at-57-20160421 Richard Lyons]], whose mellifluous voice portrayed radio preachers and '70s media moguls, and whose dark sarcastic wit gave birth to one of the group's [[https://thedailywrazz.wordpress.com/2009/12/21/we-dont-have-enough-data-negativlands-helter-stupid-20-years-later/ biggest scandals]], died of cancer on his fifty-seventh birthday. One of his last conscious acts was to sing in a final recording of his "Nesbitt's Lime Soda" song and the newly copyright-free "Happy Birthday" with his family.

* The script for a third ''[[Series/TheAddamsFamily Addams Family]]'' film (which would've served as an actual sequel to ''Addams Family Values'') was being prepared when lead actor Creator/RaulJulia (Gomez) died suddenly that October of a stroke (after having been ill of stomach cancer for a while), at which point the idea of a third film in the series was scrapped.
