I think that there are way more famous people these days, and that is one reason we hear of all of these deaths of famous people. Tons of movie stars, entertainers, ballplayers, politicians, scientists, and so forth.
I don't have any scientific data to back this up...just a feeling I have.
Maybe some truth to this in 30+years when today's "new famous" start croaking. Not today, though.
George Michael (no matter what I personally think of his music)
Are not part of this possible trend.
Don't forget Muhammad Ali, Gordie Howe, and Arnold Palmer, who were pioneers in their sports.
