Are you talking about that song "American Pie"?

The next song was by Justin Beiber and he shot himself.

After 35 years driving a Mr. Softee truck, the man parked it, put a gun in his mouth, & pulled the trigger as the music stopped.

Firefly, what's up with the "I'll pay" option. Are mystery Mondays now pay-to-play?

Crushed by a jukebox. What a way to go.

I saw the answer, but I still think that it could be a drummer/signal musician durring the civil war deserting. music stops, officer shoots.

He was playing musical chairs, but when he went to sit, someone had turned his chair upside down and it killed him.

Bye bye miss American pie. Drove a Chevy to the levy but the levy was dry. Them good ol' boys drinking whiskey and wine singing this will be the day that I die!

Well at least I'm not the only one that thought of this song! I thought I was a complete idiot.

music stop = lost his beat = heart beat.

Buddy Holly was my first guess, but my second guess is that the music was his heart beat.

Was his job performance reliant on the music?

Listen to the song and top acting like fool.

Praetorianus Fair enough.

I'd have said he's a solo musician. He just died, and the music of course stopped at the same moment.

The music stopped because of a power failure - which effectively pulled the plug on the medical equipment keeping him alive.

no. those things usually have some pretty good redundant circuits and power, anyway.

I saw the answer, but I thought of another guess anyway. He was cranking a Jack in the Box, and when the clown jumped out he had a heart attack.

Well, I'm from his hometown. The song American Pie just jumped into my head with the way the question is worded.

He is a blindfolded tightrope walker in the circus, the music comes to a climax and then stops, so the tightrope walker thinks he is at the end of the rope and step to the side into a platform, but the music stopped early so the tightrope walker fell

I really suck at these. The first thing I thought of was the song American Pie, about an artist who died in a plane crash while the music died.

See my answer above. I thought Buddy Holly/The day The Music Died as well.
