Gina Vivinetto’s Greatest Hits

More graves of the (mostly) young and tragic

After it occurred to me that most of the people in my favorite videos from The Guardian’s list (see earlier post) died young and tragically, I found pics of all their graves. I already posted Billie Holiday’s (go back two posts).

Here are the rest – with the exception of Sid Vicious‘s grave because he was cremated and scattered in undisclosed places. In his stead, I included Stiv Bators’ grave. Bators, lead singer of both the Dead Boys and Lords of the New Church, died in his sleep after being hit by a car while he was walking around drunk.

Stiv Bators (Ile-de-France, France):

John Coltrane (Farmingdale, New York):

Maria Callas (Paris, France):

Vladimir Nabokov (Vaud, Switzerland):

James Dean (Fairmont, Indiana):

Jean-Michel Basquiat (Brooklyn, New York):
