Unfortunally already incomplete and outdated because:


Mike Scaccia (The Ministry and Rigor Mortis guitarist) - died last saturday (12/22/12) on stage in Fort Worth, TX from a massive heart attack.

Marva Whitney (born Marva Ann Manning, May 1, 1944 - December 22, 2012), was an American funk singer.[1] Whitney was considered by many funk enthusiasts to be one of the "rawest" and "brassiest" music divas. Whitney died from complications of pneumonia at her home. She was 68.

Jimmy McCracklin (August 13, 1921 – December 20, 2012) was an American pianist, vocalist, and songwriter. His style contained West Coast blues, Jump blues, and R&B.[1] Over a career that spanned seven decades, he said he had written almost a thousand songs and had recorded hundreds of them.[2] McCracklin recorded over 30 albums, and earned four gold records. Tom Mazzolini of the San Francisco Blues Festival said of him, "He was probably the most important musician to come out of the Bay Area in the post-World War II years."He died in San Pablo, California, in the San Francisco Bay Area, on December 20, 2012, after a long illness, aged 91.

Unfortunally another notable death:

Ray Collins, who co-founded the Mothers of Invention, passed away on Monday in Pomona, CA at the Pomona Valley Hospital Medical Center. He had been admitted to the hospital on December 18 after a massive heart attack and was taken off life support on Saturday. He was 76.

Collins got his start singing his his high school choir and in a number of Los Angeles area doo wop groups starting in the late-50's, normally singing high falsetto. In 1964, Collins, Jimmy Carl Black, David Coronado, Ray Hunt and Roy Estrada formed the Soul Giants, a lineup that would only last until Ray and the group's guitarist, Hunt, got into a fight. Frank Zappa was asked to join in the guitarist's place and the group was eventually renamed the Mothers of Invention.

Collins was out in front of the Mothers, with Zappa, during their early years, including the albums Freak Out! and Absolutely Free. He left in early 1967 but returned for another year from September 1967 to August 1968 for the recording of Cruising With Ruben and the Jets. While not a regular member of the group in later years, he did occasionally contribute to their projects through the mid-70's. He would later say that he wanted to make more serious music and Zappa spent too much time on satire.

For the rest of his life, Collins worked in a variety of jobs from taxi driver to dishwasher. He was living out of his van for the last eight years of his life.

Blues axe man Michael “Iron Man” Burks has been ommitted too.

“Diamond-hard blues-rock...fierce, original, beautiful guitar and an exquisite growl of a voice...powerhouse blues that strikes like a hammer blow.” —Billboard Guitarist/vocalist/songwriter Michael “Iron Man” Burks was a modern-day blues hero. His “Iron Man” moniker was born from his hours-long, intensely physical performances, his fearsome guitar attack and his tough, smoky vocals. It also came from the thousands of miles a year he personally logged behind the wheel of his touring van. His fiery music was driven by an intense, blue collar work ethic that won him a rabid worldwide fan base. Between his blistering guitar sound—which could at any moment become sweetly melodic—and his live charisma, Burks earned four Blues Music Award nominations, including, most recently, the 2012 nomination for Guitarist Of The Year. He won the 2004 Living Blues magazine Critics’ Award for Best Guitarist. GuitarOne named his Alligator Records debut album, Make It Rain, one of the Top 200 greatest guitar recordings of all time. According to Living Blues, “Burks burns his own signature onto almost everything he touches...he has the ability and the imagination to fuse the best of the old and the new.” When he suddenly died at age 54 on May 6, 2012, the world lost a true musical treasure.

Bummer about Ray Collins. I'll have to break out some of the early Mothers of inventions CD's later today in tribute to Ray. Rest in Peace. Loved his vocal work on Uncle Meat and Cruisng with With Reuben and the Jets in particular.

Bugs Henderson
Buddy Henderson(October 20, 1943 – March 8, 2012), better known as Bugs Henderson, was a blues guitarist who was popular in Europe and from the 1970s was based in Dallas-Fort Worth, Texas, where he was known as a local blues guitar legend.[1]He was born in Palm Springs, California, and spent his early life in Tyler, Texas, where he formed a band called the Sensores at age 16, and later joined Mouse and the Traps. In Dallas-Fort Worth he formed the Shuffle Kings and later a band that was eponymously named.

Henderson played with blues legends such as B. B. King, Eric Clapton, Ted Nugent, Muddy Waters and Stevie Ray Vaughan.[2]He died from complications of liver cancer just four days after a benefit concert in his name.[3]The performers at the 11-hour “Benefit Bugs” event included Ray Wylie Hubbard, Smokin’ Joe Kubek & Bnois King and Mouse & the Traps, the band from early in his career with the hit songs, “A Public Execution” and “Maid of Sugar – Maid of Spice” that featured his guitar solos.

2013 has barely started and the first notable death in the music world has already been announced:

Clara Ann Fowler (November 8, 1927 – January 1, 2013), known by her professional name Patti Page, was an American singer, one of the best-known female artists in traditional pop music. She was the best-selling female artist of the 1950s,[1] and sold over 100 million records.[2] She was often introduced as "the Singin' Rage, Miss Patti Page".

Page signed with Mercury Records in 1947, and became their first successful female artist, starting with 1948's "Confess". In 1950, she had her first million-selling single "With My Eyes Wide Open, I'm Dreaming", and would eventually have 14 additional million-selling singles between 1950 and 1965.

Page's signature song, "Tennessee Waltz", recorded in 1950, was one of the biggest-selling singles of the 20th century, and is also one of the nine official state songs of Tennessee. "Tennessee Waltz" spent 13 weeks atop the Billboard magazine's Best-Sellers List in 1950. Page had three additional No. 1 hit singles between 1950 and 1953, with "All My Love (Bolero)", "I Went to Your Wedding", and "(How Much Is That) Doggie in the Window".

Unlike most pop music singers, Page blended the styles of country music into many of her most popular songs. By doing this, many of Page's singles also made the Billboard Country Chart. Towards the 1970s, Page shifted her career towards country music, and she began charting on the country charts, up until 1982. Page is one of the few vocalists who have made the country charts in five separate decades.

When rock and roll music became popular during the second half of the 1950s, traditional pop music was becoming less popular. Page was one of the few traditional pop music singers who was able to sustain her success, continuing to have major hits into the mid-1960s with "Old Cape Cod", "Allegheny Moon", "A Poor Man's Roses (Or a Rich Man's Gold)", and "Hush, Hush, Sweet Charlotte".

In 1997, Patti Page was inducted into the Oklahoma Music Hall of Fame. She will be posthumously honored with the Lifetime Achievement Grammy Award in 2013.

Until shortly before her death, Page was a host of a weekly Sunday program on the "Music of Your Life" radio network. She and Jack White of the White Stripes were interviewed in January 2008, after the White Stripes had recorded Page's early 1950s hit, "Conquest", on their 2007 studio album Icky Thump. Page and White were put together on the phone during the interview, talking to each other about their views on "Conquest".[9]

Until her death at 85, Page continued to tour, performing 50 select concerts a year across the United States and Canada.

Patti Page died on January 1, 2013, at a nursing home in Encinitas, California, according to her manager.
