I'm not sure why Don Rickles was one of them. Maybe it was because I eventually saw the human side to him in an interview. As for Tom Petty I grew up with his songs on the radio. J. Geils Band was my first rock concert so J. Geils death is worth mentioning for me. Roger Moore was the first James Bond I knew. I was always a big prog fan including King Crimson, UK and Asia so losing John Wetton was especially tough for me. Allan Holdsorth was(and still is)a true guitar god and one of the great fusion guitarists of all time so that was also rough. There you have it. I hope there's no more big names to be added to this list.

The death of Tom Petty knocked me sideways. I just couldn’t (still can’t) come to terms with the idea of him being gone. Too young. Too vital. His music seemed to always be there somewhere in the background. I played the Wilburys at my husband’s memorial service. Yes there are other names on that list which are important but none like him

Chris Cornell and Chester Bennington aren't on the first list, so this voting is f***ed.

Is this some sort of sick VIP section? f**k that.

Yeah, how are those two not on the first list? Cornell's death is easily the one that affected me the most. Not only as a long time fan but how he died was so unexpected and left some questions as to what really happened.
There's only 40 options allowed that's why.

Glen Campbell. Not only was he a hell of a songwriter and guitarist, but his story really hit me hard.

Having recently lost a close relative to Alzheimer's, I was really saddened to learn that he had gone through the same. I was actually moved to tears hearing a recording of one his last songs, "I'm not gonna miss you", which I hadn't heard before.

I'm still here, but yet I'm gone
I don't play guitar or sing my songs
They never defined who I am
The man that loves you 'til the end

You're the last person I will love
You're the last face I will recall
And best of all, I'm not gonna miss you
Not gonna miss you

You and me both.  I loved Glen Campbell when I was a child. I was really moved by the documentary about him as well.  Alzheimer's is a terrible illness and very sad for the person's family.

Petty’s and Cornell’s saddened me the most as a fan of music and for being unexpected as well.

Sure I don’t know any of these people personally, but thankfully that is not the only threshold for feeling sorrow either.  Have never understood this perspective myself, but truly an ass for every seat.

For me:

Bennington and Cornell.

Petty was a loss as well, but Cornell and Bennington were idols of mine for more than a decade.

John Dunsworth had jumped to the top of my list, and 2017 is quickly taking as late season nosedive.
