  1. I seriously need to stop crying. The great ones are almost all gone. It is such a sad shame. I was listening to the oldies tonight and each one of them had passed. What’s passing for ‘music’ these days, I refuse to listen to. I would not grieve for even one of them as I do for people like Aretha Franklin, Barry White, Luther Vandross, Sam Cooke, Otis Redding, Whitney Houston, The Dells, The Temptations, Billy Paul, Isaac Hayes, Bobby Womack, Marvin Gaye and the list is endless. They are a devastating loss to music world.

    • I know what you mean. We’ve lost so many great ones. They just keep leaving us. There are still a few of my favorites around. Stevie Woner,Patti LaBelle,Anita Baker,Chaka Khan and Sade are still with us. That’s why it’s important to give people their props while they’re still with us. You have to let artists know they’re appreciated.

      • So true Prince! SIGH! It is just that they made music. What’s out here today? I don’t even consider it to be music. They shall surely be missed, but I am going to continue to buy the product of those who are still with us.
