The new year has, unfortunately, already brought with it some heartbreaking celebrity deaths. In the early days of 2023, we lost these beloved celebrities: Earth, Wind & Fire drummer Fred White; Three 6 Mafia member Gangsta Boo; supermodel Tatjana Patitz; legendary guitarist Jeff Beck; Elvis Presley’s only daughter, Lisa Marie; and most recently, rock icon David Crosby. Their deaths came right after 2022 ended with a few shocking celebrity deaths as well, including those of legendary news anchor Barbara Walters, soccer legend Pelé, retired Pope Benedict XVI, Pointer Sisters member Anita Pointer, and Modest Mouse drummer Jeremiah Green.
In September 2022, the world was rocked by the loss of Queen Elizabeth II; before her death, she was the longest-reigning monarch in British history. Hollywood also lost many stars far too soon in 2022, including “Full House” star Bob Saget and beloved comedian Leslie Jordan. The music world was shaken by the death of Migos rapper Takeoff and PnB Rock.
