Last Words: Terry Kath (1946-1978)

"Don't worry…it's not loaded… "

Terry Kath was the original guitarist and founding member of the rock band Chicago.  After a party at a roadie's house, Kath put an unloaded .38 revolver to his head and pulled  the trigger several times on the empty chambers. He then picked up a semiautomatic 9 mm pistol and put that to his head.  His friend expressed concern so Kath showed the empty magazine to his friend, saying, "Don't worry, it's not loaded." However, one bullet remained in the chamber.  When he pullked the trigger with the pistol against his head, he died instantly.  He was one week off his 32nd birthday.
