It's hard to believe the first month of 2017 is already behind us. I'm new to the blogging world, but the world of music is my life, so before I get too deep into 2017, I want to take a moment to remember, and pay homage to, some of the great musicians we lost in 2016.

These musicians, as well as those I have overlooked, will be deeply missed. Fortunately, their music will live forever. Please feel free to comment, remind me of the artists who aren't on this list (an opportunity to listen to music I haven't heard yet), and maybe share your favorite tune for each artist. Music lives forever!
Who have I forgotten and what have these artist meant to you?
