LONDON -- Long gone are the days of rock n' rolling all night long and partying every day.

After the death of rock legend David Bowie, fans were left to celebrate the artist's six decade legacy, and while most of us were shocked at the death of the 69-year-old, the truth is, we shouldn't be.

Rock stars of the 60's are now in their 70's and 80's, so is this the end of an era?

The life of a rock star is a pretty rough one, there's a reason why they saying goes "sex, drugs and Rock n` Roll."

Just think of the rockers that died at age 27 (that's not a club we want to be a part of).

There's Jim Morrison, Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, Kurt Cobain and Amy Winehouse.

All super stars who were taken too soon, but it seems like the same sentiment is felt for rockers in their silver years.

The question is, as more legends die, will we care less?
