I was going to say Jimi Hendrix but I see a few others have got that covered so I'll bring back Nick Drake.

You took the words right out of my mouth! I heard Taxi on the car radio today and it brought back memories. I actually saw him at a fundraiser in a small church in Eugene, OR when I was visiting my sister.
I remember where I was and what I was doing the first time I heard Taxi. It was like the world stopped for a few minutes. I never got to see him in person, but his music touched my heart.

Jim Croce - I loved his music and he was as much a poet as a singer. Starry starry nights and Time in a Bottle are a couple of his hit songs but he had many other beautiful songs as well.

And I remember where I was when I heard when he died. It was on state route 104, a few miles east of Williamson, NY. Michele and I were bringing our uncle back from his cabin in the Adirondacks when the news came over the radio.

Bill Withers, who passed away just last year. “Ain’t No Sunshine” and “Lean on Me” are wonderful songs. There was something special about his voice.
