20 Photos of Celebrities Taken a Few Days Before They Passed Away

Idols for millions of fans, geniuses, celebrities — we sometimes forget that first and foremost they are just human. And, like all other people, they are not immortal.

We found 20 photographs of famous people that were taken just a few days before they died.

1. Freddie Mercury (45)

1991. This is one of the last photos of the frontman of Queen. Until the last day, he denied all rumors about his illness. He made an announcement one day before he died from bronchopneumonia that was caused by AIDS.

2. Steve Jobs (56)

Steve Jobs died at home surrounded by his closest people. The last words he said were, “Oh wow! Oh wow! Oh wow.” He died from pancreatic cancer.

3. Heath Ledger (28)

Heath Ledger is smiling on the film set, playing his last role in the movie The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus just a few days before he was found dead. He died from serious intoxication caused by painkillers (including drugs, sleeping pills, and antidepressants).

4. Muhammad Ali (74)

Muhammad Ali fought Parkinson’s disease for 3 decades. On June 2, 2016, the American boxer was hospitalized because he was in a very serious condition caused by problems with his lungs. He died the next day due to septic shock, caused by unknown natural reasons.”

5. Chester Bennington (41)

Shortly before his death, the Linkin Park frontman worked with the rap-singer Watsky. 4 days after this photo was taken, Chester Bennington was found dead in his own apartment. It was a suicide.

6. Kurt Cobain (27)

Jesse Frohman took these pictures in 1994, shortly before Kurt Cobain committed suicide. According to one version, Cobain took a deadly dose of heroin and shot himself in the head. There are also theories about a murder.

7. Bob Marley (36)

This is the last known picture of Bob Marley. He is talking to his family. At that moment, his weight was just 77 pounds (35 kilograms). Bob Marley died on May 11, 1981, from cancer (dark pigment melanoma).

8. Mark Twain (74)

This photo was taken 10 days before Samuel Clemens (also known as Mark Twain) died. In his late years, the writer was very depressed. However, this is how he answered the premature obituary in the New York Journal: “The reports of my death have been greatly exaggerated.”

A year before he died, he said, “I came in with Halley’s Comet in 1835. It is coming again next year (1910), and I expect to go out with it. It will be the greatest disappointment of my life if I don’t go out with Halley’s Comet.” This is what happened. The writer died from heart disease.

9. John Lennon (40)

The man who shot John Lennon just 4 hours after this photo was taken is on the right. He is getting an autograph from the founder and member of The Beatles.

10. Mahatma Gandhi (78)

Mahatma Gandhi professed a philosophy of no violence. John Lennon thought that the only way to fight for peace was Gandhi’s way.

Gandhi was going to pray when his assassin, Nathuram Vinayak Godse, shot him in the chest.

11. Jim Morrison (27)

This photo of Jim Morrison was taken by his friend in the small village of Saint-Leu-d’Esserent. Later that day, Morrison died in the bathroom from a heart attack caused by a heroin overdose.

12. Amy Winehouse (27)

In this photo, the singer is walking near her house in North London one week before her death. On July 23, 2011, she was found dead in her apartment. The amount of alcohol in her blood was 5 times larger than the amount needed to kill a person.

13. Jimi Hendrix (27)

Hendrix’s girlfriend took this photo one day before he died. On the morning of September 18, 1970, he was found dead in a hotel room in London. The great musician died in his bed. He choked to death on his vomit after taking 9 sleeping pills.
