Rock music has lost many notable artists recently, many who I grew up listening to. It seems that the generation that is just 10-15 years older than me are starting to gig in that great stage in the sky a little too early. Look who we have lost (and their ages) in the past year:
All these music icons were in their sixties or early seventies - it has indeed been a terrible few months for music. Of course in my youth I would have thought of anyone older than 50 was ancient, but the ages of the above are uncomfortably close to this 56 year old.
Please - God? Take no more, or at least wait until they are too old to rock.
