Ripped in March

A selected overview of culture stars relevant to my own tastes who passed away this month - an astonishingly short list this time. Rest in peace.

Kurt Moll (78), German opera and Lieder singer. One of the best basses of his generation.
Howard Hodgkin (84), British painter and winner of the Turner prize in 1985. His abstracts are very impressive (one was selected for a 2012 Olympics poster).
Chuck Berry (90), American rock and roll legend. Not a personal favourite but his large influence on the development of pop and rock is undeniable.
