Gone But Not Forgotten: The Decade in Deaths

The 2000s gave birth to new technologies and musical innovations -- but they also brought the deaths of some of our brightest and most influential stars. As you look forward to the next decade, look back at some of the great voices that were silenced over the last 10 years.

The gallery is arranged in the order of the artists' passings.
