Bowie, Frey, and Kantner - January 2016: A Reflection on Their Past and Rock’s Future”


Starting with the British Invasion in 1964 through today, the number of successful artists who have elevated to rock legend status in the world of rock ‘n’ roll is unparalleled for popular culture.  As growing numbers continue to rock well into their golden years, many rock icons are reflecting on their careers by releasing memoirs and autobiographies; while others are in their actual farewell tours. However, with the loss of David Bowie, Glen Frey, and Paul Kantner in the month of January 2016, the Timmons Brothers will reflect on the career of these three icons and address the issue that January 2016 may become the benchmark (month and year) we will later remember as the time when the loss of rock legends of natural causes began to reach an unprecedented pace.  As the Righteous Brothers said, “If there's a rock and roll heaven, you know they've got a hell of a band“. It  will be a band far better than we have here.
