Over the last 12 months, we said goodbye to the leader of the Velvet Underground, the man behind Magnolia Electric Co., a key Ohio Player, and the Possum. We mourned country singer Mindy McCready and Let’s Active bassist Faye Hunter, saluted inventor Ray Dolby, and paid respects to Kris Kross’ Chris “Mac Daddy” Kelly. Remember the lives and legacy of those we lost here.
