Musicians we've lost in 2008

Somebody please correct me if I'm wrong, but that's not Mike Smith in the NY Times photo, it's Denny Payton, the DC5's late sax player, who passed on in 2006.

Also left out of this tribute: Blues guitarists Sean Costello & Jeff Healey, Rod Allen (The Fortunes), Hurricane Smith, Martin Fierro (Bay Area sax player), Merl Saunders (Bay Area keyboardist), soul singers Al Wilson and Nathaniel Mayer, Motown pianist Richard "Popcorn" Wylie, jazz organist Jimmy McGriff, and undoubtedly others I can't remember...
