When a celebrity dies young, we're sad to see a life end too soon – and often haunted by the life and career that could've been. Popular in life, young Hollywood stars Jean Harlow, James Dean, Heath Ledger and River Phoenix became icons in death. Music has lost its share of greats, too, from Hank Williams, Buddy Holly, Otis Redding, Janis Joplin and Jimi Hendrix to Kurt Cobain and Amy Winehouse.
