I'm thankful I was not old enough in 1980 to realize how bad a year that was( Bon Scott, John Bonham, John Lennon) but I was saddened when Eric Carr passed. Also the passing of George Harrison and most recently Mitch Mitchell. I hate finding out well after the fact that musicians I admire have died. That happened to me with Mick Tucker. I didn't know what had happened to him so I decided to google him and found out he'd died 6 years ago of leukemia. Steve Clark was another very sad one but I think that was more due to finding out what a sad life he lived in the first place.
