We are just a few weeks into 2016 and have already seen the early passing of many talented celebrities including actor Alan Rickman, rock legend David Bowie, Eagles guitarist Glen Frey, and Mott the Hoople drummer Dale Griffin.
Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield's recent tweet said it all. "Ashes to ashes, dust to stardust. Your brilliance inspired us all. Goodbye Starman."
Hadfield also released a tribute to David Bowie in 2013, strumming his guitar and singing "Major Tom" aboard the international space station.
