Down through the years, we have lost some of our friends and colleagues, some through illness, some in tragic circumstances. Here we remember some musicians who are no longer with us. We offer our sympathy to their relatives. May they, and all the other musicians who have passed away, rest in peace. If you would like to have a deceased musician remembered here or if you can fill in a missing year, please let us know.
