January was a bad month for musicians

If you’re a musician, you have to be ecstatic that it’s now February. January was a bad month….a very bad month.

At the end of each year, I write a tribute column to the musicians that died during the year. There were so many that died last month that January gets its own piece.

Here’s a look at who we lost in January.


A look at how musicians lives and deaths are like our own.

    Every five years or so I decide to update this section. I can't believe I've been doing this for close to ten years. The last time I did this I was close to sixty years old. Now I'm just a few months away from the big 7-ZERO. Scary AF!!! I'm pretty sure I won't be doing an update when I hit 80, but you never know. But until then, lets just be grateful.
