My insatiable thirst for knowledge led me to do some minimal investigative research on this issue: surely other well-known superstars suffer from the tummy malady, I reasoned, even if Jimi pre-dated the age of LI awareness (yeah, that’s short for Lactose Intolerance–pretty cool, huh?). Makes you wonder—was it REALLY a drug overdose? Or an ice cream binge? And what medical examiner would ever own up to those un-rock-and-roll findings? No medical examiner, that’s who.
But check this out: http://www.lactoseintolerant.org/2007/11/20/list-need-to-ad-pics/ The site is so charming that it sports a cow icon. How freaking complicated is that? The list is just super well-constructed. See for yourself.
Other Celebrities that are lactose intolerant (we are not provided with the Central celebrity around whom all remaining celebrities become “other.” For our purposes, we shall assume that it is Jimi.)
Lisa Cudrow (not worth a Google to ascertain correct spelling before revealing digestive secrets)

Okay, the list was clearly compiled a while ago, and its author may have succumbed to lactose intolerance and passed away before he or she had the chance to edit the horrificness, but I, for one, am grateful that it was left for our eyes only. Please feel free to add your super celebrity secret tidbits to the LI Hall of Fame or its members!
