a couple of minutes after the news of george michael’s death had hit the internet i read a tweet that said 2016 is the year music died and i felt an instant anger rising inside of me, because while yes, too many great musicians have passed away this year, music is not and will never be dead. how dare you say that?! good music doesn’t die when it’s creators die. it lives on and inspires others. musicians and listeners likewise. music has saved my life so many times because it is life.
