Singers, Songwriters, and Musicians Gone in 2016

maxxseoulMaxxseoul on 01/01/2017

SingersSongwritersandMusiciansGonein2016 Photo "I met a girl who sang the blues, and I asked her for some happy news, but she just smiled and turned away." Don McClean - American Pie.

February 23rd, 1959 when Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens, and J.P. "The Big Bopper" Richardson were killed in a plane crash has been called "The Day the Music Died". 2016 may one day be known as the year the music died.

In an eleven-month span in 1970-1971 we lost Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, Jim Morrison, and Louis Armstrong. That period was another somber time in music history.

This quiz is a tribute to those voices in music that were silenced in 2016. Although they are gone, their music lives on. This quiz pays homage to them all.
