Jimmy’s brother, David,

walked away from love,

leaving The Temptations,

to his resting place above.

 

and Michael from INXS;

our Aussie ‘pin up’ boy,

by accident or desire,

his future did destroy.

 

The Stones, at their height,

lost one of their band.

A day they painted black,

when Brian left this land.

 

And birds suddenly appeared

after Karen withdrew.

It seems like only yesterday,

when her sweet love we knew.

 

The Four Tops lead man, Levi,

reached out and was there.

Hits like ‘Shake me, Wake me’, and

‘Walk Away Renee’ – are gifts so rare.

 

A part of The Steam Packet:

Long John had us hooked,

after leaving Brian, Rod and Julie,

to sell-out every venue booked.

 

And the voice of an angel,

taken from us so young.

Little Lena won our hearts,

with every song she sung.

 

He hit us with his rhythm stick:

Ian’s sound was so unique.

His music changed our mood,

he lost his fight, when at his peak.

 

Walk away, please go,

sang our British crooner Matt.

Music was all the poorer

when he threw in his hat.

 

‘You don’t own me’ – her anthem,

to feminist’s rang true.

But Lesley’s party is now over,

and we can cry with her too.

 

BB King – The Legend of Legends:

His influence was so great.

Many generations of guitarist’s,

now pay homage to their mate.

 

So many more were taken,

so many, I could name;

It comes with liabilities,

this fickle game of fame.

 

So many idols lost;

sudden death hard to digest,

Their music, their legacy;

our gain at their bequest.
