Unfortunately, you can add Sid Barrett(Pink Floyd) to the list now...
Alan Wilson of Canned Heat died around same time as Janis & Jimi.He sang "Goin' Up The Country"http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alan_Wilson_%28musician%29Sandy Denny of Fairport Convention. Sang Duet with R.Plant on "Battle Of Evermore" http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sandy_Denny
Hello. Great article. Nice blog! However you may want to make one correction. The photo you label as Carl Wilson is actually a picture of his late brother Dennis. I just thought you might like to know.
Charlie, Thank you so much for the kind words AND the correction on the Dennis/Carl photo. I had both of their photos saved and when it came post I picked the wrong one! They look a lot alike.Glad to add you to my links!
You've got Sweet drummer Mick Tucker. Sadly, you can add Sweet singer Brian Connolly who died Feb. 9, 1997 of liver failure after fighting back from several heart attacks.
aww so sad... nice touch though:)
This is the 183rd BLOG I've posted this comment on since yesterday:As a veteran of Somalia, Bosnia, Kosovo, Afghanistan and Iraq...over these last few months...I've wondered to myself, "Is it possible to reduce the amount of hatred and violence in our world?"Last week, before going to sleep, I began asking myself a lot of WHAT IF questions. The central theme behind my thoughts are neither anti-war or pro-religion. My words are not meant to inspire scenes of flag-burning or political protest signs. Sadly, I realize that sometimes a lasting Peace means war.However, unless someone and everyone start talking about the idea of Peace...Even if it's just for two short minutes...It's possible that an unstoppable firestorm of hatred may one day burn its way across our entire planet.Instead of pointing out those differences which separate mankind...It's my hope that the humanity within all of us will somehow prevail...Even if it's JUST FOR TWO SHORT MINUTES...See link: http://just-one-day-of-peace.blogspot.com/It'd great if you could POST your thoughts on what you believe... PSRock and Roll will never die!
Thank you for honoring these people who deeply touched our lives. So many of them take me back to my teenage years. It's sad to say The Grandfather of Soul, James Brown is now a member of this group.Peace.
I will be adding James Brown andDenny Doherty as soon as I have a few minutes to dedicate to them.
I am almost thinking you love Classic rock more than I do. I just can't believe it though.
Do you have something against The Dead?Jerry Garcia?Pig Pen?Also, Mike Bloomfield?Dave Van Ronk?More to comePeterH
LAYLA:I was going to ask the same question Peter did...Where is Jerry?Where is Rod McKernan (Pigpen)Where is Mike Bloomfield (an underrated artist for his time)This is a great memorial. I did posts for Duane and Jerry last year on the anniversary of their deaths. Both influenced me in so many ways.When I am feeling down, just putting "Mountain Jam" from th EAT A PEACH album on and listening to Duane make his Les Paul sing can change my entire attitude.
So many of my inspirations are on your list, Randy Rhoads, Duane, Jimi. Tommy Bolin died in 1976. Former guitarist for James Gang, Deep Purple,and others. I just wrote about him on my blog, thethreechordreview.com.I was nice to see Bill Chase on your list. He died about 20 miles from my house. I remember that day well.
By the way, I am Fender Six String. I changed my user name for my wife's blog, the road traveler.
Badly you can add some very good drumers here:John Bonham (Led Zeppelin)MetalKeith Moon (The Who)60's, HardrockCozy Powell (Jeff Beck Group, Sessions)Motorcycle accident!It seems drumers have a short lifecycle.
Please add Sneaky Pete Kleinowpedal steelMember of the Flying Burrito Brothers,and session work ever when a steel was needed.Died in 2005Billy Lyall, keyboards+guitarMember of The early Bay City Rollers and 70's group Pilot('Magic', 'January').
Is Michael Clarke in the list?Can't find him.(Byrds, Flying Burrito Brothers, Firefall).Isn't Paul McCartney dead, too?Umm... no that's this damn 60's story.;-))
Anon, LOL at your Paul McC comment :)I certainly hope I have John B and Keith M on my list! Actually I know I do, I could never forget them....but thanks for the new names you gave me I will get around to updating soon.
Layla, We have something else shared in common now. Ray Charles died on MY birthday. I was on my way to see John Edward (psychic medium) with a friend, in CT when we heard the news on the radio. How spooky?
Amen, these are great artists!
Below are four names that I can think of not on the list: Mariska Veres (lead singer of Shocking Blue)http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mariska_VeresIke Turnerhttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ike_TurnerBuddy Mileshttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Buddy_MilesMike Smith (unfortunately, I couldn't find an info link for him short enough to fit)
let's not forget Bradley Nowell of Sublime. He passed May 25, 1995.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bradley_NowellGreat idea - I gave you a plug.
Oh wow, and just noticed...MILES DAVIS 1991
Ella Fitzgerald 1996

I'm not sure how many you want, or if you want Jazz artists butDuke Ellington 1974http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Duke_EllingtonTony Williams (drummer for Miles Davisgreat 2nd quintet and Lifetime)http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tony_Williams
Syd Barrett please. Pink Floyd Legendhttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Syd_Barrett
Pushans, Syd is already on here you must have missed him. But thanks for pointing it out. I love feedback
Man, you spelled Freddie Mercury wrong! It's Freddie with an "ie" not a "y". Other than that, good page. A fitting tribute to all of those great ones.
Red, damn I did! Thanks so much for correcting that.
