The Month, Some Music Died

Happy March celebrity death watchers. February seemed to have a lot of music related passings. Some we cared about, some we didn’t, some we said “who?” and some that just got WAY more media coverage than they should have. There were also a few other celebs that died as well as my sleep patterns that have bit the big one too.

  1. Did you Wiki that list? Some are so obscure.

    • Normally I do not Wiki the monthly deaths. I actually catch them as they come across the news. However, since I already wrote my title and lead in for this, I figured I better have a good number of musical deaths to report.

  2. Geez, that’s depressing.
