    80’s & 90’s pop star George Michael, who had 10 Billboard #1 hits, and was the lead singer of Wham, followed by a successful solo career, has passed away. He was 53.

    Yet, another shocker in the music world. What a hard year on the music biz.

    Indeed, Chris.

    Leon Russell, Merle Haggard, Glenn Frey, Prince, David Bowie and now George Michael. And those are just the huge names…

    I am starting to feel old by seeing the deaths of all these musicians who had hit records while I was growing up:

    • Falco (1998)
    • Michael Jackson (2009)
    • Prince (2016)
    • Maurice White (2016)
    • Glenn Frey (2016)
    • David Bowie (2016)

    Sharon Jones of Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings died of pancreatic cancer in November of this year. The Dap Kings were hired as session musicians for the recording of Amy Winehouse’s 2006 album Back to Black.

    2016 has really been awful for the music world. šŸ™

    On the up side, Keith Richards is still alive, so there’s hope for a long life for the rest of us.

    But Skep, Richards is cheating. Daily transfusions of the blood of 15 year olds I guess gives him the win on a technicality, but barely.
