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.

5
Kurt Moll (78), German opera and Lieder singer. One of the best basses of his generation.
9
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).
18
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.
