Y Be Protected c /7 U.S. ~el Elvis to Eminem: quantifying the price of fame through early I mortality European and North American rock and pop stars I Mark A Bellis, Tom Hennell, Clare Lushey, Karen Hughes, Karen Tocque, John R Ashton J Epidemiol Community Health 2007;61 :896-901. doi: 10.1136/jech.2007.059915 See end of article for authors' affiliations Correspondence to: Mark A Bellis, Centre for Public Health, Liverpool John Moores University, Castle House, North Street, Liverpooll3 2AY, UK; Accepted 6 April 2007 Background: Rock and pop stars are frequently characterised as indulging in high-risk behaviours, with high- profile deaths amongst such musicians creating an impression of premature mortality. However, studies to date have not quantiFied differences between mortality experienced by such stars and general populations. Objective: This study measures survival rates of Famous musicians (n = 1064) from their point Fame and compares them to matched general populations in North America and Europe. Design: We describe and utilise a novel actuarial survival methodology which allows quantiFication of excess post-Fame mortality in pop stars. Participants: Individuals From North America and Europe performing on any album in the All-Time Top 1000 albums From the music genres rock, punk, rap, R&B, electronica and new age. Results: From 3 to 25 years post fame, both North American and European pop stars experience signiFicantly higher mortality (more than 1.7 times) than demographically matched populations in the USA and UK, respectively. After 25 years of Fame, relative mortality in European (but not North American) pop stars begins to return to population levels. Five-year post-Fame survival rates suggest differential mortality between stars and general populations was greater in those reaching Fame before 1980.
