This year, the world of music lost some its brightest lights: Lemmy Kilmister, Allen Toussaint, Ben E. King, Scott Weiland and many more. Blues titan B.B. King was 89; up-and-coming rapper Capo was just 22. But no matter how many years they spent on this planet, all 54 of these artists — singers and songwriters, players and producers — left behind their music. This is a remembrance of their lives and legacies.
