What day did the music die?

For Don Maclean, it was Feb. 3, 1959, when Buddy Holly, the Big Bopper and Richie Valens died in a plane crash.

For me, it was Sept. 3, 1973, when Jim Croce died, in a plane crash as well.

What day did the music die for you?

1/10/16 db a definite shock and a hard time check as I was at his 50th birthday concert. Now I am 50. Music lives on, like a caterpillar.

Pardon the copyright - this  was made for Andy's Bowie site.

Musicians always die. They're neither immortal nor eternal. Great music is. That lives on and never dies.

Prince & Bowie!

Kurt Donald Cobain (February 20, 1967 – April 5, 1994) R.I.P. :(

For me, it would be either September 18, 1970, the day that Jimi passed, or August 9, 1995, when Jerry Garcia left this earth.  In both cases, thankfully, the music lives on and on.

For me it was August 27, 1990 with the passing of Stevie Ray Vaughan.

Being a teenager in the 90's dealing with the angst of youth! Let's see. The Seattle suicides were common or overdose. We had Cobain , Cornell , Stanley,  wood, Weiland ( diff state) Shannon hoon.

So despite of all those sorry souls that were self inflicted and the list rolls on like a scroll.

Jeff Buckley in 97 or Carl Wilson , the big o.

I may or may not be in the minority but June 2009...the death of Michael Jackson.  He defined and also redefined music in so many ways.
