Music Memorial Site: Notable Deaths & Obituaries

"Without music," a famous philosopher once wrote, "life would be a mistake." The death of a great musician can create a collective sense of loss and nostalgia, the feeling that an era has passed. This memorial site was created to honor and remember singers, songwriters, composers, instrumentalists and all those who've made their mark in the world of music.
