Pause-and-Playlist: R.I.P. in 2017

2017 hasn’t gotten off to the shocking start of 2016, when in the first month alone we lost David Bowie, Natalie Cole, Glenn Frey and Paul Kantner. Still, we mourn the likes of Al Jarreau, Larry Coryell, John Wetton, Butch Trucks and Maggie Roche so far this year.

Here’s our playlist tribute to these fallen musicians and more.
