2016 will be on record as the year where we lost so many music icons. Noise11 iHeartRadio pays tribute to the artists who left us in 2016 in a special end of year edition of iHeartRadio Music News powered by

From the shock news of the death of David Bowie on January 10 and then Eagles’ Glenn Frey just a week later, through to December with Wayne Duncan, the second member of Daddy Cool this year after Ross Hannaford in March as well as Prince, Leon Russell and Leonard Cohen, the world lost way to many talents that are just not being replaced with new artists anywhere near the same calibre.

In a special iHeartRadio Music News powered by special end of year edition, we pay tribute to some of the biggest names in music who are no longer with us for 2017.
