If February 3, 1959, when a plane carrying Ritchie Valens, Buddy Holly and J.P. “The Big Bopper” Richardson crashed, is “The Day The Music Died”, then 2016 is The Year The Music Died. In the past year we’ve lost David Bowie, Prince, Merle Haggard, Glenn Frey, George Michael and several more impactful musicians.
This beautiful mural is outside of the House of Blues in Boston. The painting “is the work of a trio of artists and House of Blues restaurant employees: Hannah Earley, Meghan Pierce, and Sydney Steeves.” Quote courtesy of Vanyaland.com Have a great Wednesday! ~Phil
Fortunately, music will never die, but it will never be the same.
It’s rough when these larger-than-life artists die. It’s like part of my childhood/teenage/college years has died.
Yes and now Carrie Fisher too. Our childhood icons are disappearing, and in the process reminding us that we’re not kids anymore.
We will miss them all. Thanks, Phil
