The news of an artist’s death is never easy, but the wave of support that follows is a reminder of how incredible their art was.
There are many ways fans remember musicians who have left Earth too soon: whether it’s rewatching live DVDs, buying T-shirts and albums, or even starting cover bands, it’s hard to let go of something that’s impacted your life so much.
Some artists have been buried in public lots, available for fans to pay tribute. Some of these get roses, photos, even paintings; others get graffitied or trashed.
Even when opinions are divisive, the fact still remains: this person made an impact while they were here.
