    I, as well as many others, have noted the passing of many great musicians over the years here at SBAF. We post usually in the form of a status post or a mention in a thread of a particular musical genre. Since these threads all tend to quickly pass by as time rolls up the threads, I decided to create a thread here where fans of noted artists can let all of us know when an artist has passed.

    Please feel free to add your post of a musician who has brought you joy and has passed. Feel free to pay your respects to the artist via a simple like, if you wish.

    I hope the mods are okay with this.

    I'll start with the info I posted in my status update on the passing of Adam Schlesinger of Fountains of Wayne.

    @atomicbob commented in that thread about the passing of jazz great Ellis Marsalis.

    R.I.P. Dave Byron. The most famous vocalist who fronted Uriah Heep.



    R.I.P. David Bowie, opened my mind for other types of music. Too many good songs to mention. This one always make me smile.



    R.I.P. Whitney Houston, fuck she deserved better. Her voice aged well too, one of the best female vocalists ever. She had Soul.

    Quite a mixed bunch. I appreciate the latter two but original Uriah Heep brings back fond memories. Boy could Byron sing.

    Rediscovered Velvet Underground recently, and didn't enjoy it. But this is a song that that definitely has a place in my brain's musical hall of fame. Beautiful. Thanks for the reminder.

    From my favorite Stranglers Album: Makes me wonder if the Boards of Canada ever listened to them. Heck sounds like they may have sampled some of this.

    Thanks @Biodegraded, going down memory lane with Stranglers you tube videos and book marking albums for longer tidal sessions.
