Echoes In Memoriam: Musicians We Lost in 2022

A Roll Call of Echoes Artists Lost in 2022

Echoes In Memoriam 2022

As we head toward the end of the year, we do a lot of looking back with our “Best of” lists. But here, we remember those who left our music universe in 2022. For the Echoes galaxy of stars, it was a bad year with three icons of the show and electronic music leaving: Vangelis, Klaus Schulze and just a few days ago Manuel Göttsching who also recorded as Ashra. I was literally planning our memoriam show when the news broke of Göttsching’s departure and then, last night, after the show had been put to bed, the news arrived that Angelo Badalamenti of Twin Peaks fame had left us. The passing of Schulze didn’t surprise anyone. We’d been on a death watch for a few years now as the legendary synth artist battled various afflictions. But Vangelis, who succumbed to Covid and Göttsching, who was only 70, was an unwelcome surprise.  In the list below are the Echoes artists who left the planet. I couldn’t squeeze all of  them into our Memoriam broadcast, but the loss of all of them is deep in our hearts. For a more complete list of musicians lost in 2022 go to We Heart Music.
