Rock Stars Memorial Site: Notable Deaths & Obituaries

"Rock and roll music," Frank Sinatra once said, "is the most brutal, ugly, desperate, vicious form of expression it has been my misfortune to hear." Thankfully, not everyone shares his opinion. The rise of youth culture saw rock music become perhaps the most vital artform of the late 20th century, and its influence continues today. This memorial site was created to celebrate musical legends who still keep us rocking.
