Another influential musician

Has died

There should be sadness

At the passing

Of another human life

But what’s left behind?



Whether it’s the music of

John Lennon

Jimi Hendrix

Kurt Cobain

Now, Chris Cornell

Stevie Ray Vaughan

Howlin’ Wolf

Muddy Waters

B.B. King

Or hundreds of others

Music can touch humans deeply

And despite the different ways

It can affect people

Music provides such

A passionate connection

Among those who live for it


Music excites

It warms

It moves

It connects


One heck of a gift

To leave behind
