PopMart celebrities @ 11:27 pm

Random question: does anyone know the identities of all the tragic celebrities shown on the screen during HMTMKMKM on the PopMart tour?

I *think* I've managed to spot:
- Aladdin Sane / Ziggy Stardust
- Bob Marley
- Buddy Holly
- Charlie Parker
- Elvis Presley
- Freddie Mercury
- Ian Curtis
- James Dean
- Janis Joplin
- Jimi Hendrix
- Jim Morrison
- John Lennon
- Judy Garland
- Kurt Cobain
- MacPhisto
- Marc Bolan
- Marilyn Monroe
- Marvin Gaye
- Phil Lynott
- Tupac Shakur

There are still about half a dozen I'm not sure about. Do any of these rubbish screencaps look familiar at all?

EDIT: Had a brainwave - top left is Sid Vicious! And top right is Patsy Cline (thanks to baranduyn for that one!)

It does look like Michael, but since he was alive and well during PopMart, it seems unlikely to be him? Dusty didn't die until 1999, either.

Ah, Patsy Cline - should've thought of her, my Mum is a big fan! Thank you. :)

I thought of him as a possibility, though I suspect that grief would be way too raw for him to be included, and I couldn't spot a resemblance anywhere either.

Hmm, maybe.

Top center is definitely Jackson. Long history there.
