For music lovers with a taste for a bit of nostalgia, here are three very comprehensive lists of musicians who passed away during 2022 (thanks to Walter Einenkel at Daily Kos for putting these together)
Final Note—Musicians who passed in 2022: Part One
Final Note—Musicians who passed in 2022: Part Two
Final Note—Musicians who passed in 2022: Part Three
During the course of the year, I had heard of some of the most noteworthy: Jerry Lee Lewis, Meat Loaf, Ronnie Spector, George Crumb, Taylor Hawkins, Naomi Judd, Christine McVie, Lamont Dozier, Pharaoh Sanders, Irene Cara.
But the one that hit me the most, I hadn’t heard of until I read through these lists: Alan White drummer for “Yes” after Bill Bruford departed. I spent many hours under headphones learning those drum parts.
