I think I could have cried when John Lennon was murdered, but I was in shock too much.
Same with Stevie.

Actually almost recently. Adam Yauch's death affected me a lot more than I thought it would, but reflecting on it I think it had to do with the facing the "death" of my youth, my own mortality, all that. Licensed To Ill was a big part of the soundtrack to my high school years.

I remember when John Belushi died, my brother was pretty torn up about it, he was the biggest Belushi fan I've known before or since.

Stevie Ray Vaughan. He cleaned himself up, did plenty to help fellow musicians clean up and get their lives back, he just completed his first record with his big brother Jimmie, he was in a great place mentally and career-wise and boom, he's gone. My first thought was why couldn't it have been Clapton? terrible i know, but I was thinking it in terms of if one awesome guitarist had to die today, leave Stevie here. I was only 19. I no longer harbor any ill will toward Clapton. I really didn't then either.

Eric Clapton's son Connor
Luther Allison
John Lennon
Stevie Ray Vaughan
Etta James

The passing of all the above made me cry.

Stevie really, really bothered me, but I don't remember if there were tears.

I also was greatly saddened when the Skynyrd crash happened. I already had the album with the flames on it.

Woody. I had just seen them 13 days before.

He certainly isn't dead, but I was 11 at the time, and Magic Johnson was my favorite athlete, and I remember crying pretty hard when I flipped on ESPN and he's there announcing that he has HIV.

Was watching Monday Night Football when Howard Cosell announced that John Lennon had been murdered. I bawled my eyes out. Only other time was when JFK was assassinated.

Garcia, Woody, George Harrison, Walter Payton, Levon.

It usually hits me later after the death while listening to the music in the car or somewhere private.

Not full on balling but just some little break down triggered by a good memory of seeing them live or relating to a certain song.

In Garcia's case, it really was like the end of being a kid or carefree.

I'm sure there have been other celebrity deaths that brought me to tears in the past. The only one I can recall off hand is when Davey Allison died. I was really pulling for him to make it after his helicopter crash. But Andy Griffith is a tough loss. I just watched all three clips from the Opie The Bird Man episode and had a moment. Andy reminds me of a favorite uncle. He's always been there, loved and respected.

Lowell George
Jerry Garcia
Levon Helm

I remeber vividly where I was when I heard about all of them passing.

Sometimes it gets to me out of the blue. I was driving around with an old girlfriend and the Sirius/XM Grateful Dead channel was playing some Legion Of Mary and the tears started seeping out. She asked me what was wrong and I told her the guitar player, the bass player, the keyboard player and the sax player were now all dead. This was just after Martin Fierro had died. She asked me if I knew any of them personally, she just didn't understand why this got to me like it did.

Princess Diana's funeral had me weeping like a baby. Was very saddened by Jerry Garcia, Kurt Cobain, and Allan Woody but not enough to bring me to tears. I was almost brought to tears at the 'Another One For Woody' show a couple of years ago when Allan's daughter Savannah sat in with Gov't Mule for a tear jerking version of 'Soulshine' with Savannah pointing to the sky and singing "just like my daddy used to say". That was extremely touching and I had to fight off tears at that moment.
