I became fourteen that year. I was given my first guitar on the previous Christmas. It was the dawning of an age of excitement for me because I finally was able to make my own music. The following year 1972 contains some of my favorite music. What amazes me is how fresh and exciting some of that music still sounds to me.

And... three quarters of those bands and artists have lost members to mortality, many multiple members. There is only one member of Uriah Heep alive, Mick Box. Only two members of the Allman Brothers survive. Only the drummer of ELP made it. And the list goes on and on.
