It's never easy to say goodbye to musicians who have crafted the soundtracks of our lives, and 2018 has seen a number of legends leave us, sometimes very unexpectedly. We've compiled a gallery of the Rockers We've Lost in 2018 to remember their accomplishments in our beloved genres.

We've lost some true legends so far in 2018, including iconic Pantera / Hellyeah drummer Vinnie Paul. An outpouring of tributes came from former bandmates and musicians he influenced from decades of percussion mastery.

The last of Motorhead's 'Three Amigos' also passed away this year. 'Fast' Eddie Clarke was one of the meanest guitar players in history, ripping through dirty rock 'n' roll with Lemmy Kilmister and 'Philthy Animal' Taylor on Motorhead's most accomplished works.

This gallery includes both of the above and many more who have impacted the music that we love.
