Rock Stars Who Died in 2021 (A Farewell Tribute to these 20 Music Icons & Legends)

2021 was yet another tough year of losses for far too many iconic rock stars that we grew up listening too. The following 70’s & 80’s Rock Star celebrities passed away in the Hard Rock, Heavy Metal, and Classic Rock genre and even a couple of pop rockers. In their own way, each of these musicians and artist have left a truly remarkable impression on the World with their art. Here is my annual tribute for some of the brightest stars who died in 2021 in chronological order. Along side each name, I’ve also listed what band or bands they were known for, how old they were and the cause of death if it was at the time the video was made.

Tim Bogert (76) VANILLA FUDGE, CACTUS, BOGERT-BECK & APPICE
Michael Stanley (72) MICHAEL STANLEY BAND
Alan Cartwright (75) PROCOL HARUM
Jim Steinman (73) MEAT LOAF
Les McKeown (65) BAY CITY ROLLERS
John Hinch (73) JUDAS PRIEST
