While every year we lose musicians and entertainers who somehow find their way into our memories and touch our lives, this year seems particularly tough for us 50-something geezers.

Lost my father back in November, hard working/family loving man, I'll always remember the good times we had together!

I saw a Soundgarden show this year about three weeks before his death. One of the greatest singing voiced ever.

George "The Animal" Steele, Superfly Jimmy Snuka, Ivan Koloff and Bobby "The Weasel" Heenan. All great ones of the former era and before I quit watching 'rasslin.
