Yeah I suppose Elvis falls into this category along with some other famous 27 year olds who died at that age.
Elvis was young enough to be seen as a great tragedy despite being past his best. Lennon, Marley, even Prince who was 50-something were mourned. Get to old age though and you might not make the front half of the paper, e.g. Chuck Berry went without a lot of fanfare.
