What's more glamorous than a rock star? Fashion models? Too ephemeral. Modern artists? Too obscure. Politicians? Please! Hollywood actors come close - they've got the charisma - but the medium is all wrong. Movies happen after actors give their Oscar-winning performances, whereas musicians thrive in the moment.
That's what makes the passing of a musical artist such a blow for their fans. Their music may live on, but the chance to see them in their element is gone forever. It makes sense, then, that rock star gravesites become such popular destinations. Visiting rock star's graves can give fans a sense of connection, if not closure, when the music fades away.
