This has been a very rough year for music fans. Since January, we have lost so many greats, including Earth, Wind & Fire’s Maurice White, Jefferson Airplane’s Paul Kantner, Glenn Frey, Sir George Martin, A Tribe Called Quest’s Phife Dawg, Merle Haggard, Parliament-Funkadelic’s Bernie Worrell, ELP’s Keith Emerson, Suicide’s Alan Vega, Dead or Alive’s Pete Burns, Leonard Cohen, and, most shockingly, David Bowie, Prince, and George Michael. Hopefully 2017 will bring better news, but for now, Yahoo Music looks back on those who have left us in the past 12 months.
