Musicians We’ll Always Miss

 

We weren’t ready to say goodbye

 

 

Music has a way of connecting us to other people despite the difference in distance, history and generation. So when we’re forced to say goodbye to a musician we looked up to, grew up with and virtually idolized, it always feels like it’s too soon.

 

Chester Bennington (March 20, 1976 – July 20, 2017)

Sometimes beginnings aren’t so simple. Sometimes goodbye’s the only way. 

 

 

Chris Cornell (July 20, 1964 – May 18, 2017)

To be yourself is all that you can do.

 

 

George Michaels (June 25, 1963 – December 25, 2016)

I’ve had enough of danger and people on the streets. I’m looking out for angels, just trying to find some peace.

 

 

Prince (June 7, 1958 – April 21, 2016)

I only wanted to see you laughing in the purple rain.

 

 

Glenn Frey (November 6, 1948 – January 18, 2016)

And maybe someday we will find, it wasn’t really wasted time.

 

 

David Bowie (January 8, 2947 – January 10, 2016)

I’m not a prophet or a stone-aged man, just mortal with potential of a superman. I’m living on.

 

 

Whitney Houston (August 9, 2963 – February 11, 2012)

Bitter sweet memories, that’s all I’m taking with me. So goodbye, please don’t cry.

 

 

Amy Winehouse (September 14 1983 – July 23, 2011)

We only said goodbye with words, I died a hundred times.

 

 

Michael Jackson (August 29, 1958 – June 25, 2009)

Like a comet blazing ‘cross the evening sky, gone too soon.

 

 

Kurt Cobain (February 20, 1967 – April 5, 1994)

I’m worse at what I do best. And for this gift, I feel blessed. Our little group has always been and always will until the end.

 

 

Freddie Mercury (September 5, 1946 – November 24, 1991)

You’re headed for disaster cause you never read the signs. Too much love will kill you every time.

 

 

John Lennon (October 9, 1940 – December 8, 1980)

Imagine there’s no heaven, it’s easy if you try. No hell below us, above us only sky. 

 

 

 

On the upside, music has a way of living on for years. So, really, it isn’t ever goodbye.
