774

30 Dec

With great sadness, we reach this point in the year where we look back on the musicians who have passed away. There have been many losses and honestly I don’t know all the musicians who passed but here are some of the ones whose passing has effected my musical world.

Buddy Miles
Jeff Healey
Sean LeVert
Bo Diddley
Hiram Bullock
Isaac Hayes
LeRoi Moore
Richard Wright
Gidget Gein
Levi Stubbs
Dee Dee Warwick
Frank Navetta
Jimmy Carl Black
Mitch Mitchell
Munetaka Higuchi
Eartha Kitt

The most shocking of those was the sudden passing of LeRoi Moore. He had gotten into an ATV accident on his farm in June. He was never able to recover and passed away from complications two months later. Moore was a member of the Dave Matthews Band and as their saxophone, he was an integral part of creating their signature sound. His presence will definitely be missed.

To all the musicians who passed this year…may you keep on rocking in the afterlife.
