    Pianists who have died in fires

    Discussion in 'Research' started by -NM-, May 15, 2009.

    Title pretty much explains it.

    Does anyone know of any famous/semi-famous Pianists who have died in fires?

    It's not particuarly important so it's not worth going and cruising the library, it's just for one line in a story and if possible i'd just rather use a real name than a made up one.

    Google search has yielded no results for me so far unfortunately.

    Thanks.

    could be the weirdest research question i've ever seen asked!

    i doubt you'll find that any 'known' ones have... you'd do better with actors...

    Steve Marriott of the Small Faces dies in a house fire in 1991 - he played keyboard, not strictly piano.

    This site has a few other musicians, though not explicitly pianists, who have died in fires, might be helpful:
