Over the past few weeks we have lost some truly inspirational musicians.
This post is simply a remembrance to those that will live forever.
LEMMY (HAWKWIND & MOTÖRHEAD)
Undoubtedly one of the biggest rock tracks ever! Since hearing it on Skins a few years back this track has featured in several soundtracks.
JOHN BRADBURY (THE SPECIALS)
Playing drums in The Specials was an important role that Bradbury made look easy. A Message To You Rudy is such a feel good track and hearing it endlessly at Mod nights around the north east allowed me to appreciate the beauty of the Ska legends.
On a personal level this is the saddest loss on the list. Bowie was/is a legend – allowing everyone to feel comfortable with who they are, he also produced some of the finest music across 26 albums. Heroes is my favourite song of all time and I hate the fact I will never hear it live.
GLENN FREY – EAGLES
This song was on the first Guitar Hero I ever played and since then the track has been unavoidable. Almost every taxi driver has it on – not a bad thing! Guitarist Frey will for sure be missed in the music community.
