John Stewart Poop 2016

What else can be said about 2016 that hasn’t been said. The deaths of cultural touchstones I grew up with. For me it was Leonard Cohen, Prince and Bowie, as well as personal favourites such as Greg Lake (ELP and King Crimson) and Phife Dog (A Tribe Called Quest) Then to top it off, George Michael. But then there was this election. It still doesn’t make sense that Trump somehow got the office. But I guess emails were more important than ties to Putin and Russia. It was also the year the Chicago Cubs broke their drought and won the series. Last time I checked they were still celebrating in the streets of Chicago, and Leicester City won the Premier League championship. I am going to give you my top 10 albums this year but instead of reissues and singles, I will give my top 10 Leonard, Bowie and Prince tracks to pay tribute to losing three greats.
