The Righteous Brothers recorded Rock and Roll Heaven in 1974. An ode to musicians past, the song referenced the passing of Jimi Hendrix, Otis Redding, Janis Joplin and more. The song has been rewritten since to include Elvis, John Lennon, Marvin Gaye and others. In 2016, it seems another re –write is due to include David Bowie, Glen Frey and now Prince.
Milestones serve to illustrate the passage of time for generations. I’m going take a moment to salute and celebrate how these performers enriched us and made our times more enjoyable. They really have a great band up there.
