2016 has been tough year. We’ve lost cultural icons like David Bowie, Prince, Muhammad Ali, Leonard Cohen, Glenn Frey, Leon Russell, Sharon Jones and Alan Rickman, just to name but a few — and that’s not even including George Michael and Carrie Fisher, both of whom passed away within a week of this writing.
