The Day Music Died celebrates life through an exhibition of portraits of musicians whose death was unexpectedly tragic. This tribute is a look back at the musicians who made a striking influence to various generations.

Regardless of musical genre, the musicians featured in the exhibition have made a significant impact to the history of music in general. Some of these musicians are Brian Jones of the Rolling Stones, Elvis Presley, Freddie Mercury, Janis Joplin, and Joey Ramone of the Ramones.

The photographs featured were taken by some of the most renowned music photographers of the 20th Century, such as Ian Dickson, Merri Cyr, Peter Hince, Steve Double, and Tom Hanley, to mention a few.

Here are some of the featured portraits in the exhibit:
