Although I have not mention these tragedies lately, it is not to say that they have not been noted. This post is more of a tribute to the contributions these artists and innovators have provided not just to our own lives and ears but to people throughout the world. Thanks to Alex Chilton, Malcolm McLaren, Type O Negative's Peter Steele, You Say Party! We Say Die!'s Devon Clifford and, today, to Gangstarr's Guru for making the world a better place one note at a time.
