Study: Rockers Less Healthy

Who would have guessed that Jimi Hendrix's lifestyle could have put him at greater risk?

LONDON - Researchers at John Moores University in Liverpool have published a study indicating that rock stars are more likely than the rest of us to die before reaching old age. Researchers declined to say how many minutes it took them to reach this conclusion but explained that their research clearly shows that rock stars "want to rock and roll all night and party every day." Not only do rock stars' lifestyles expose them to greater risk, they tend to engage in multiple concurrent risks. Jimi Hendrix used drugs, incorporated fire into his shows and would often run with scissors. Jim Morrison routinely swam and exposed himself less than an hour after eating.

At the other end of the spectrum were CPA's, whose total aversion to risk and sedentary lifestyles keep them almost unnaturally preserved and danger-free. What did the research discover was biggest threat to accountants? "Fossilization."
