Their talents will never be seen again.

Tragic: 23 great musical talents we've lost since 2014. We've lost so many brilliant musical talents since 2014. It's hard to believe we'll never again hear their voices, or their instruments, or their wonderful new work again. It seemed like every musician we love has been passed away, all since 2014. Please stop -- we can only handle so much!

So who are some of the cherished entertainers we've lost since 2014? Let's not forget legends like Prince and David Bowie. Soundgarden singer Chris Cornell took his own life, as did Linkin Park singer Chester Bennington, just after Scott Weiland of Stone Temple Pilots lost his life to substances. Singer Tom Petty left us far too soon, and Troy Gentry lost his life in an unfortunate accident in an airplane. How much more can we take? Will other brilliant musicians rise to take their places, or is our world just less musically talented now?

Did one of your favorite musicians pass away in 2014, 2015, 2016, or 2017? Read on to find out and to remember the contributions all of these people made to the world of music. They may be gone, but we'll never forget their songs. Look below to see our list of musicians who have passed away in the past four years.
