In Memoriam: The Musicians We Lost in 2015

Over the last 12 months, we bid farewell to two R&B legends, a pioneering ’60s pop singer, an alt-rock statesman, and the musician who invented acid house. We said goodbye to talents as disparate as B.B. King, A$AP Yams, Kim Fowley, and Gail Zappa. Below, remember the lives and legacies of those we lost in 2015.
