Social media has been abuzz the last few weeks, mourning what seems like an unusual number of rock star deaths. It started with the demise of Scott Weiland (Dec. 3, 2015) and has continued unabated through Lemmy Kilmister (Dec. 28), Natalie Cole (Dec. 31), David Bowie (Jan. 10, 2016), Mic Gillette (trumpeter for Tower of Power, Jan. 17), Dale Griffin (drummer for Mott the Hoople, Jan. 17), and Glenn Frey (Jan. 18). Heck, by the time this column goes to press, Keith Richards may have also mounted the Big Escalator to the Sky.
Wait, strike that. He’s either already dead or will never die. No one really knows for sure.
