Every year many people die. It hits hard when you have met the deceased. It hits harder when it’s somebody close to you. Many people feel saddened when a celebrity dies because they feel they know them. They were used to seeing their famous face on TV or listening to their voice on the radio; they followed their lives, their relationships, the houses they lived in, the clothes they wore. Sometimes they become accustomed to celebrities, fantazising to become like them: famous, talented and attractive. We generally see celebrities as winners, successful and glamorous. Some of them live sad, depressive lives while others live long prosperous lives. Here we will read and see about the lives of some of the musicians that died in 2016. Whatever the case and whatever the cause, here at VanMusic we want to pay homage to some musicians that died in 2016. Whatever the case and whatever the cause, here at VanMusic we want to pay homage to some of the musicians that left us in 2016, a year many people called a killer.
