2017 Musical Deaths, Part 1

2017 was a year filled with far too many musical deaths; some of them iconic legends and others who flew by our musical radar only once or twice. Over the next two weeks, we are going to remember, in no particular order, as many as possible.

    The best music was in the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s, we have lost so many who were a part of creating that music ……….. the one great thing is their music / contribution to music and their legacy will live on long after we are all gone because of people like you Ray who care and make sure to share so that people don’t forget!!

      Penny, I agree the music “back then” was the best. I have tried my best to keep those memories alive. ❤️
