The year 2016 was a year of goodbyes to musical greats.
One woman wrote
on Twitter, "2016 is like a twisted rapture. Bowie, Prince, Sharon Jones, George Michael, who else. Scary, scary year."
Madonna was one of those who's had it with 2016. She wrote
on Twitter, "Farewell My Friend! 🙏🏻 Another Great Artist leaves us. 💔Can 2016 F-ck Off NOW?"
Those are just some of the musical legends who died in 2016. Here's a round-up of the musicians we lost and loved. First: Prince Rogers Nelson. This photo taken on June 16, 1990 shows musician Prince performing on stage during his concert at the Parc des Princes stadium in Paris. Pop icon Prince -- whose pioneering brand of danceable funk made him one of music's most influential figures -- died on April 21, 2016 at his compound in Minnesota. He was 57. The announcement came just a week after the Grammy and Oscar winner was taken to hospital with a bad bout of influenza, although he made light of his health problems after the scare. The untimely loss of Prince shocked many fans. Prince was found dead in his purple palace in Minnesota. Prince died
