In an end-of-year Noise11 iHeartRadio special we take a look at the artists we lost over the past 12 months.
Christmas 2016 was rocked by the death’s of Rick Parfitt of Status Quo on December 24 and then George Michael on Christmas Day.
It was the year of unexpected passings with Soundgarden’s Chris Cornell, Linkin Park’s Chester Bennington and then the sudden death of Tom Petty dominating the year.
Legends Chuck Berry and Fats Domino died in 2017 and for Australia’s Young family tragedy stuck within one month with the passing of The Easybeats’ George Young and his brother Malcolm of AC/DC in October and November.
