Full title: Rock Death in the 1970s: A Sweepstakes; a Greil Marcus essay - his perverse way of doing an "end of decade" overview. Three categories - past contribution to the medium, estimated future contribution, and manner of death - each rated on a 1-10 scale. Modern examples: Kurt Cobain would score high, for high past and future contributions, and unusual manner of death (i.e. not an OD); Jeff Buckley would score high - his dad only got a 5 (out of 30).
