Click to enlarge

A good day for a year-end recap. Even though we're far into the new year, we went with a year-end wrap-up to meet the mood of a week that features a roundup of Milwaukee music in the form  of the Milwaukee Music Awards. Though the logic is a bit specious, we were nevertheless overdue to pay our respects to some of the amazing musicians who have passed with the last year. In this countdown, a limit of 5 really is a travesty, so feel free to respond with a list of your own... #5 Jim Carroll "People That Died" #4 Koko Taylor "Fire" #3 The Stooges "1969" #2 Wilco "I'm Always In Love" #1 Michael Jackson "Blame It On The Boogie"
