Musicians We've Lost So Far in 2016

It's hard to believe the number of great ones we've lost so far this year. Here's a partial list:

Maurice White
Paul Kantner
Glenn Frey
Sir George Martin
Phife Dawg
Merle Haggard
Bernie Worrell
Pete Burns
Mose Allison
Leon Russell
Keith Emerson
Alan Vega
Leonard Cohen
David Bowie
Prince

That list, of course, is a very limited one. Dozens of lesser known musicians passed away this year. But Merle Haggard, George Martin, David Bowie, Leonard Cohen, Prince all in one year. Not fair. Not fair at all.
