Me too. I knew with Chris Squire gone, there wouldn't be a true YES left behind. Squire was such a huge presence in the band, physically, creatively, and emotionally. There's no replacing him! Plus, I was looking forward to some type of (re)union with the band, when they were inducted into the Rock Hall of Fame. And then Squire passed before that could happen. So, I was sad for that, and sad that I wouldn't see YES perform together again, in what would probably be the last time, in a configuration that resembled YES of old. Just a shame he's gone! R.I.P. Fish.
What a monster bass player!

3.) John Denver
4.) Mick Ronson

i still find it hard to believe that bowie is gone
There are so many more, but I really enjoyed seeing Alvin Lee in concert.
The recent passing of Chris Cornell (Audioslave, Soundgarden, solo artist) really hit hard. I had been listening to him throughout most of his career and enjoyed his solo work immensely. His passing was way too soon.
When Mark Knopfler passes I will be totally devastated...
Be prepared.....were all gonna die
Still fretting over Ken Dodd....
1. Ronnie James Dio
2. John Bonham
3. Phil Lynott
5. Chris Squire
It would have to be Marvin Gaye.
Lou Reed. If you've never listened to Berlin, you should.
I completely get that. For me it was a tossup between him and Greg Lake. I really liked Lake's work with King Crimson and later with ELP.
Lake said something once about the two of them: “I used to live with Chris Squire, in a flat in London,” Lake says. “People used to think that Yes and ELP were always at each other’s throats. But it’s not true. We sort of had a friendly rivalry. They used to call us ‘Henderson, Snake and Charmer,’ and we used to call them ‘Maybe.' … I’m very close to Chris, and I’ve known him all my life.”
I feel for you too. ELP was one of my early band memories; a band that my brother played for me. It was Lucky Man. Wow. What a great song. And more ELP actually lead to a love of classical music, which has lasted to this day.
Also, Greg Lake and John Wetton both gone. Both within a few weeks of each other. Two big hits there. Sux.
Oh yea, I love that Greg Lake, Chris Squire story. Funny and interesting. Thanks for sharing.
John Lennon and there is no second place.
The Beatles were a huge influence on me. Lennon was killed when I was in college, living on campus and deeply involved in the typical things young college men would have been at the time.
Back then I had the time and the passion to let this bother me, and it did.
May I add Waylon Jennings and Johnny Cash?
Absolutely. Both were a gargantuan piece of my musical puzzle. And Johnny Cash got the acclaim and respect from the hoi polloi that I feel Waylon never did. He was so much more than just the guy who sang the theme to The Dukes of Hazzard.
