We all die one day, sooner or later. But the goal is not to live forever; the goal is to create something that will.  Death, what most of us fear, is not the greatest loss in life. The greatest loss is what dies inside us while we live. Great persons may die but their greatness always remains. Likewise art never dies; music never dies, it remains forever.

We have lost many great artists and musicians in the recent years. It has surely been a tragic moment for music lovers all over the world. Startling deaths one after another has shocked us all. Although these artists are no longer with us, the music they gave us will remain forever. Here are such popular artists/musicians who passed away recently in the last two or three years. We express our heartfelt condolence to their friends, family and fans. May their soul Rest In Peace!
