Of these two musicians, who have passed away in 2016, whose passing has personally hit you the hardest, Glenn Frey or Prince?
I didn't really listen to either of them, so neither really hit me other than being newsworthy
Prince's just shocked me. Just floored me. Just like Bowie's
I feel bad if the postman died in his 50's.
What about David Bowie or Lonnie Mack?
We can only give 2 choices, so i used the two that were personally toughest for me.
Frey co-wrote and sang 'Take it easy' which is a favorite song. But I never really liked the guy. Prince was a music, cultural and civil rights icon. I believe he was the most talented and creative musician of our time. He also had more artistic integrity than Frey who was crassly commercial. I'm going with Prince every time.
Merle Haggard was a bigger lose for me. While I like Frey and Prince their music never moved me the way The Hag could.
I was coming in to say the same about the Hag.
Frey. The Eagles are one of my all-time favorites. It's hard to rank favorite groups/artists, but they are probably #1 or 2.
Bowie's death hit me harder.
