The Lives They Lived: The Music They Made
With the new year approaching, The New York Times has taken note of some of the lives that ended in the past 12 months. This is their 15th annual Lives They Lived issue, which doesn’t claim to be comprehensive or definitive in their choices of the people whose lives are described. Instead, this is an unabashedly idiosyncratic collection, driven by the interests, passions and whims of their editors and writers, who hope that readers are moved, tickled, intrigued and provoked by reading about these 24 very different lives, all memorably lived.
In addition to The Lives They Lived, the Times presents The Music They Made, in the form of a musical sound collage featuring a sampling of the musicians who died this year. The musicians presented include Odetta, Mike Smith (The Dave Clark Five), Rick Wright (Pink Floyd), Eddy Arnold, Isaac Hayes, Miriam Makeba, Nick Reynolds and John Stewart (The Kingston Trio), Buddy Miles and others.
