Please note: this page has two separate sections, as described below. In some cases, a person could conceivably fit into either section based on his or her accomplishments. When this occurs, to avoid duplication, an editorial decision is made as to a single section where that person's listing will be placed. Two examples are Florence Henderson and Jerry Lewis. Florence achieved her greatest success in "The Brady Bunch" from 1969 through 1974 but prior and subsequent to that she also had many musical credits: she is listed in the Musical Memories section. I also chose to list Jerry in that section because this website focuses on music and Jerry did have a top-ten hit in 1956 with "Rock-A-Bye Your Baby With A Dixie Melody." If you do not see an expected name in one section, please check the other section: the name might be there.



Musical Memories 

In this section are the names of people whose primary focus was music-related. To view an article about any of them, simply click on the name. Hopefully this list will encourage our you to learn more about these gifted individuals whose accomplishments were an important part of the "soundtracks of our lives." You can use the two command buttons below to sort by first name, by last name, or chronologically by recency, which is the initial setting.

Laura Pinto, the creator and administrator of the world-famous Oldies Connection website devoted to 50s, 60s and 70s music, has a page on her website with information about musical personalites who have left us. It's also called GONE BUT NOT FORGOTTEN. Though the names are the same, her webpage also includes many beloved people who passed away prior to 2008 and are thus not included above.

Please visit Laura Pinto's GONE BUT NOT FORGOTTEN webpage.
