Musicians Who Died in 2016

For me David Bowie was unbelievable.. So sad how many we lost and there music.

Musician deaths can be some of the most heartbreaking casualties that we face all year. After all, music is one of the few things that can transcend emotion, and help us overcome our own personal tragedies. It’s certainly ironic that the music of a singer that just died can help us get through their passing and find a place of peace. Because of the taxing life of a rock star, there are more dead musicians than any other kind of celebrity. And if you believe in Heaven, that’s great news for you. Think of the amazing talent that’s just waiting for you once you pass through the pearly gates. If you’re looking for famous singers who died in 2016, stay tuned to this list of recent rock star deaths because we’ll be updating it with which singer died recently and links to their obituaries every chance that we get.

As 2016 rolls on, so shall the inevitable yoke of time, pulling along more musicians to that land beyond consciousness. Put your headphones on, turn the volume up to 11 and remember these 2016 musician deaths.

Musicians who died in 2016: 465.

Emerson, Lake & Palmer (07 Dec 2016): Greg Lake, of Emerson, Lake & Palmer and King Crimson, has died of cancer at the age of 69, according to What is tragic is that keyboardist Keith Emerson died earlier this year at the age of 71, to a suicide ****hot to the head. Only drummer Carl Palmer is alive from the trio.

Daddy Cool (04 Dec 2016): Australian doo-wop rock Daddy Cool’s bassist, singer Wayne Duncan has passed away... This is particularly gutting because their lead guitarist Ross Hannaford also recently passed away earlier in March 8, 2016. Wayne Duncan was 72.

The Business (01 Dec 2016): Micky Fitz, the frontman for the English Oi! band The Business (not to be confused with J.Roddy Walston and the Business), has died of cancer in December 1, 2016. The band’s official statement listed "after a long battle with cancer".

The Business' statement: "It is with the deepest regret that Daddy Cool announce the passing this morning of our wonderful friend and bass player Wayne Duncan at 72 after a short illness. Our condolences to his partner Anne and his daughters Catherine and Justine who have requested privacy at this time. R.I.P. brother Wayne."

Ray Columbus (29 Nov 2016): Thanks to reader Phil B who told us that has died today (29 Nov 2016). The New Zealand singer is best known for Ray Columbus & the Invaders’s ‘She’s A Mod’ (a cover of The Senator).

Atrocity (US) (27 Nov 2016): Atrocity’s drummer Jeff White (not to be confused with alt-country folk singer) has died. Like you, I was confusing this US-based band with Germany’s Atrocity. Doing a quick check, I can tell you that this Torrington, CT, band started a full three years before the German band with a demo tape in 1985. Subsequently releasing Infected in 1990 and The Art of Death! in 1992. The US band broke up in 1993, but reformed in 2006 and released Let War Rage in 2009 via Mad Lion Records. Jeff White died at his home and was only 54.

Do or Die (27 Nov 2016): Also, Chicago’s Johnny P of Do Or Die has... died. We previously mentioned him because of a similar Nashville artist called Jonny P (note: no “h”). The singer’s death was confirmed by Johnny’s eldest daughter earlier this week (November 27th).

Inspiral Carpets (22 Nov 2016): Inspiral Carpets recently announced the death of their drummer, Craig Gill. He was 44. The band’s official statement: It’s with heavy hearts that we announce the death of our drummer and close friend, Craig Gill. We are all absolutely devastated by the news. Craig was our brother. We were honoured to work alongside him for the last 30 years. To say we’ll miss him is an understatement.

Sharon Jones (18 Nov 2016): Sharon Jones, singer of Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings, has died after a battle with cancer. The official press statement reads "We are deeply saddened to announce that Sharon Jones has passed away after a heroic battle against pancreatic cancer. She was surrounded by her loved ones, including the Dap-Kings. Thank you for your prayers and thoughts during this difficult time."

Leonard Cohen (07 Nov 2016): It is with a heavy heart that we announce that poet, singer, songwriter, novelist, Leonard Cohen has died at the age of 82. Adam Cohen, his son, said: “My father passed away peacefully at his home in Los Angeles with the knowledge that he had completed what he felt was one of his greatest records. He was writing up until his last moments with his unique brand of humor.”

Young fans not familiar with Cohen’s hit ‘Everybody Knows’ from 1990’s Pump Up the Volume ... may have heard his incredibly wonderful song ‘Nevermind’ on HBO’s True Detective Season 2.
