What is it with 2016? What’s with all the death and violence when it comes to music? Look what happened just this past weekend.
- There was the attack on the Radiohead listening party in Turkey which was followed up by street protests that were broken up by tear gas, water cannon and rubber bullets.
- Alejandro “Jano” Fuentes, a contestant on Mexico’s version of The Voice has been shot and killed. And he wasn’t in Mexico; he was shot near Chicago during a carjacking.
- Attrell Cordes of PM Dawn–we knew him as Prince Be–died of renal kidney disease.
- Brian Rading, the bass player for Canada’s Five Man Electric Band, has died at age 69.
- And a fan died at a NOFX show in Copenhagen after being hit on the head in the pit.
Jeebus, let’s be careful out there.
