We lost some important people in music last year, some shouted about by the media, others barely whispered about. Of course there were many more than this, the following is just a pick of those who mean something to me.
You can find information about any of these musicians elsewhere, I will just post a song for each of them and let the music or the voices (or the tight jeans!) do the talking.

Davy Jones, died February 2012
Adam Yauch, died May 2012
