An "In Memoriam" thread

Unfortunately, musicians and other entertainers do depart from this mortal coil, so here’s a thread to remember them.

I was a huge Foreigner fan as a late 1970s tween, and their multi-instrumentalist on the first 3 albums, Ian McDonald, died a few days ago at age 75. Here’s a really nice tribute to him.

A decade earlier, he was a founding member of King Crimson. For most of this time, he’s basically skated under the radar, and it sounds like that’s the way he wanted it. RIP, Ian. You were part of my teenage soundtrack.


I really didn’t want to post anybody this year and this person is a bit of a sting…

My favorite song:


So sad. I loved Screaming Trees.


Another song:


Right? Not only Kerry is a poorer place now. :frowning:

Also, Gary Brooker. Yes, I know, there’s literally nothing cool about Procul Harum, but he still had an amazing soul voice and Whiter Shade of Pale is still one fucking trip of a song.


Oh no. :broken_heart::broken_heart: RIP.
I love King Crimson
and off topic Rick Wills also with Foreigner was in Hawkwind which shocked me…,…

Today the 16th of August, remembering the passing of Elvis Presley in 1977. He was 42. I really love 70’s Elvis & this is one of my fav songs of that era.

“The Next Step Is Love”

March 25th. My beloved Taylor Hawkins of Foo Fighters. :broken_heart::broken_heart::broken_heart:


Now that I’ve found “In Memoriam” I’ll transfer the sad passing of Taylor Hawkins March 25th posts here.

Yeah I posted this yesterday. I am completely crushed, devastated, gutted. It’s never going to go away… And on top of this tragic loss, in August, David lost his beloved mother. How much can that poor man take??? I am sick for Taylor’s family,wife 3 kids, and worried to death about David. His mom was his best friend


The above post was a reply to Lori. Seems I’ve forgotten how to use this site, second mistake today

I know how you feel. I’m still learning how to use this site. One of the good things about murmurs, one might learn something. Losing a much loved one is emotionally devastating, we can let out feelings about those we lost, their music will always a place in our hearts. x


In memory of Christine McVie, who passed away today. :heartpulse:


“Songbird” was the first dance song at our wedding.


A look back at the life of legendary guitarist Jeff Beck who passed away on Tuesday, he was 78. :heart:
