Great Loss To Music

Recently Travis Barker and DJ AM survived a plane crash that killed several others. An article was posted on titled Music's Most Fateful Flights. Okay, any crash can be a tragedy, but was this one a blow to the history of music? Sure, Travis Barker can play the drums very well, but he is better known for being nude a lot. Also, when did DJs become musicians? Ohhh, I can turn on a turntable and spin records...that makes me an artist? The only reason this irritated me was the fact that these guys were mentioned in the same breath as the following musicians who perished in air crashes:

Jim Croce
John Denver
Ricky Nelson
Randy Rhoads
Stevie Ray Vaughan
Buddy Holly
Ritchie Valens
Ronnie Van Zant
Steve Gaines
Patsy Cline

Get real! Barker and DJ AM survived. How does this relate to these music legends?
