    Francis Ford Coppola lost a son, Giancarlo in a speedboat accident. He was decapitated when Ryan O'Neal's son, Griffin, was drunk driving the speedboat and drove it under a water skier's tow rope. The tow rope hit Giancarlo in the throat and because of the high speed the boat was moving at, severed his neck.

    I know this happened to a country artist I just can't remember who.
    Is any other HAGS want to jump in feel free.
    I tried Google and this is the closest I found, in a story about Ralph Stanley:

    Stanley has had more than his share of both. In the early ’70s, several years after Carter’s death, Ralph Stanley found Roy Lee Centers, a singer he considered close to being his brother’s equal. One night after a festival near Jackson, Centers went to a party and got a ride home from a drunk he’d been in an argument with. The man reportedly drove Centers up a back road, told him, “I’m going to silence that beautiful voice forever,” and shot him in the mouth, killing the 29-year-old singer in front of Centers’s 10-year-old son.

    Link to the story:

He quit performing for years after it affected him so bad.

    Yes, he mentioned at the end of one of his shows. Really choked me up

    He has one son, Austin Scaggs who is a musical journalist.
    Another son, Oscar, died of a heroin overdose in 1998 at the age of 21.
    It was the wrong Scaggs, it was Ricky Scaggs

    Skaggs’ busy career suffered a setback when his son Andrew was shot in the mouth by a drug-crazed truck-driver, but returned in 1989 with two fine albums in the traditional mould: White Limozeen, which he produced for Dolly Parton, and his own Kentucky Thunder. 1991’s My Father’s Son was his most consistent album in years, but its poor sales led Columbia Records to drop him from their roster in 1992. He resurfaced on Atlantic Records, releasing two solid albums before expanding his horizons by forming his own Skaggs Family label at the end of the decade. His run of traditional recordings with his Kentucky Thunder band hit a peak in 2006 with the superb Instrumentals, which gave the artist his fourth Grammy Award for Best Bluegrass Album (Bluegrass Rules!, Ancient Tones and Brand New Strings had previously earned the accolade). The following year Skaggs collaborated with Bruce Hornsby on a highly enjoyable duo album, and also recorded an album with the Whites. He reunited with Kentucky Thunder in 2008 to record a collection of bluegrass classics from the late 40s.

    Theres no info if the kid died or not nobody seems to know so I'm assuming he's still alive.

    When you lose a parent you lose your past. When you lose a spouse you lose your present. When you lose a child you lose your future.

    I remember seeing that on the Motley Crue behind the music on VH1, it was heartbreaking. He was talking about telling her that she was beautiful after all of her hair fell out.......terrible.

    Romy Schneider lost a son when he was impaled through a fence as a child. She never recovered from his death and probably died of a broken heart.

    How strange it must be to know that you were born with a dead twin. Seems like that would automatically qualify you as a death hag.

    Keith Richards and Anita Pallenberg lost their son 2 months after he was born.
    Errol Flynn and Lilli Damita's son Sean, a photo journalist went missing in 1970 in Cambodia and was declared legally dead in 1984. Lili spent a fortune trying to find her only child and she died in 1994.
    Do not regret growing older it is a privilege denied to many

    My mom worked with Michael, at the hotel my mom was housekeeper at, I remember her coming home one day and saying Michael passed away, at the time it wasn't out what happened, she remembers him being a sweet kid, I think he was 18 at the time, he had worked with her the summer before his death. Don't know if it's been mentioned but Danielle Steele the author, son died due to an accidental overdose he was nineteen

    About the suicide of Marie Osmond's son is maybe because
    he was gay and the Mormon faith looked down on it.
