The Bowie loss still hurts the most. He went out on top with an incredible album made while battling cancer. Took his greatness to another level.

Re: The Year That Music Died

Well the greatest era of Rock and R&B was the 60's and early 70's.

Those artists are now in their golden years so I think every year for the next decade or two will be quite similar.

I think rock and roll is dying and a new style of music will emerge. I just have no idea what it'll be.

It probably hasn't even been born yet.

I never realized how much Bowie music I liked.
