Malcolm Young, Chris Cornell, Chuck Berry, Tom Petty, Gord Downie, Gregg Allman, Chester Bennington

Your impact, incredible. Your legacy, undeniable. Your music, immortal. To the legends we lost in ’17 — thank you. Your art made the world a better place. It lives on forever.

Malcolm Young:

“We’ve always been a true band. You won’t find one any truer. AC/DC will always be AC/DC. Sometimes we’ll do well, sometimes not so well, but the music of AC/DC will always be the same.”

Chris Cornell:

“Even when you’ve paid enough
Been pulled apart
Or been held up
Every single memory of
The good or bad, faces of love
Don’t lose any sleep tonight
I’m sure everything will end up alright
You may win or lose … but to be yourself is all”

Chuck Berry:

“If you want to release your aggression, get up and dance. That’s what rock and roll is all about.”

Tom Petty:

“No, I’ll stand my ground
Won’t be turned around
And I’ll keep this world from draggin’ me down
Gonna stand my ground … and I won’t back down”

Gord Downie:

“First thing we’d climb a tree. And maybe then we’d talk. Or sit silently. And listen to our thoughts. With illusions of someday, cast in a golden light. No dress rehearsal. This is our life.”

Gregg Allman:

“Meanwhile, I ain’t wastin’ time no more
’Cause time goes by like pouring rain, and much faster things
You don’t need no gypsy to tell you why
Ya can’t let one precious day to slip by”

Chester Bennington:

“I want to heal, I want to feel,
Like I’m close to something real
I want to find something I’ve wanted all along
Somewhere I belong.”
