A Complete Abridged History of Music (Part 13)*

October 31

* In the greater Alexandria, Minnesota, standard metropolitan statistical area.

There’s nothing like the eureka moment of knocking off a song that didn’t exist before – I won’t compare it to sex, but it lasts longer. ~ Paul McCartney

While it’s still a tad early to determine whether there were any notable births in 2016, musically we did lose Prince, Glenn Frey, Merle Haggard, Guy Clark, Bobby Vee, Leonard Cohen, and Leon Russell. We also lost Abe Vigoda who, as I recall, said he never got many jobs after “Barney Miller” because everyone thought he was dead. Now, 2016 locally . . .
