Geez 2016…Didn’t even hear about these ones…

2016 has been a fairly devastating year in the entertainment industry. The list musicians, actors and entertainers that we’ve lost has been extensive. So extensive, some we didn’t even hear about (or at least I didn’t)

Matt Roberts

Who’s Matt Roberts? He’s the original guitarist from 3 Doors Down. He left the band in 2012 and passed away this past April. I didn’t hear about it when it happened. I only heard about Matt Roberts passing when it was recently announced that his Doctor was arrested for allegedly providing Matt with the drugs that he overdosed on.

Sharon Jones

Who’s Sharon Jones? Up until recently I had no idea who Sharon Jones was. My first introduction to Miss Sharon Jones was watching a trailer for a documentary about her life and career.

Chances are you’ve actually heard of her and didn’t even know it, thanks to Matthew McConaughey and Lincoln Motors.

Side note: Sharon Jones actually had a stroke on Nov 8th watching the US election and she later blamed the stroke on Donald Trump, saying it was his fault for everything. She passed away on Friday Nov 18th, 2016

We’ve got one month left in 2016…will the Grim Reaper give us a break and let us ease into 2017?
