We weren’t ready to say goodbye
Music has a way of connecting us to other people despite the difference in distance, history and generation. So when we’re forced to say goodbye to a musician we looked up to, grew up with and virtually idolized, it always feels like it’s too soon.
Chester Bennington (March 20, 1976 – July 20, 2017)
Sometimes beginnings aren’t so simple. Sometimes goodbye’s the only way.
Chris Cornell (July 20, 1964 – May 18, 2017)
To be yourself is all that you can do.
George Michaels (June 25, 1963 – December 25, 2016)
I’ve had enough of danger and people on the streets. I’m looking out for angels, just trying to find some peace.
Prince (June 7, 1958 – April 21, 2016)
I only wanted to see you laughing in the purple rain.
Glenn Frey (November 6, 1948 – January 18, 2016)
And maybe someday we will find, it wasn’t really wasted time.
David Bowie (January 8, 2947 – January 10, 2016)
I’m not a prophet or a stone-aged man, just mortal with potential of a superman. I’m living on.
Whitney Houston (August 9, 2963 – February 11, 2012)
Bitter sweet memories, that’s all I’m taking with me. So goodbye, please don’t cry.
Amy Winehouse (September 14 1983 – July 23, 2011)
We only said goodbye with words, I died a hundred times.
Michael Jackson (August 29, 1958 – June 25, 2009)
Like a comet blazing ‘cross the evening sky, gone too soon.
Kurt Cobain (February 20, 1967 – April 5, 1994)
I’m worse at what I do best. And for this gift, I feel blessed. Our little group has always been and always will until the end.
Freddie Mercury (September 5, 1946 – November 24, 1991)
You’re headed for disaster cause you never read the signs. Too much love will kill you every time.
John Lennon (October 9, 1940 – December 8, 1980)
Imagine there’s no heaven, it’s easy if you try. No hell below us, above us only sky.
On the upside, music has a way of living on for years. So, really, it isn’t ever goodbye.
