At last night's Grammy Awards, some famous people who "died suddenly" this past year were missing from the "In Memoriam" segment
The show's producers followed the example of last Sunday's Oscars, even though Pfizer/BioNTech were NOT among the sponsors
It seems that so many well-known musicians, and other famous members of the rock community, have “died suddenly” since last year’s Grammy Awards that the producers of last night’s ceremony left a number of them out of the “In Memoriam” segment—just as many were left out of last Sunday’s farewell segment at the Oscars.
Here are some who were among the missing, with excerpts from the reports of their untimely deaths:
Joey Jordison, Slipknot’s founding drummer and co-writer of many of their biggest hits, died on Monday at the age of 46. A rep for his family said he died “peacefully in his sleep” but did not specify a cause of death.
Graeme Edge, drummer and co-founding member of the Moody Blues, has died at the age of 80. The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame-inducted British prog band announced Edge’s death Thursday. No cause of death was revealed.
Ian McDonald, a multi-instrumentalist who was part of the founding lineups of the art-rock group King Crimson in the late 1960s and the more commercial Foreigner in the mid-’70s, died Wednesday at age 75. No cause of death was immediately given but a spokesperson said he “passed away peacefully” surrounded by family at his home in New York City.
Mick Rock, a British photographer who helped shape the visual identity of rock-and-roll in the 1970s, with indelible portraits of David Bowie, Lou Reed, Iggy Pop, Debbie Harry and other stars of what became known as the glam-rock era, died Nov. 18 at a hospital in New York City. He was 72.
His family announced his death in a statement on his website and on social media. The cause was not immediately disclosed.
On February 6, 2022 the nation was left with a void that can never be filled again.

Veteran singer Lata Mangeshkar took to Twitter and shared a picture from the COVID-19 vaccination center and informed about starting free vaccination drive.
As at the Oscars, so here it’s likely that the number of the dead was lowered so that it wouldn’t call attention to the toll that those “vaccines” have taken—even though Pfizer and BioNTech were not among the sponsors.
(While they did not include all those who died this past year in their fond farewell, they did (of course) include a “Ukraine moment” in the broadcast:/
