Musicians React To The Passing Of Steve Jobs

2 minute read

As the co-founder of Apple, Steve Jobs was a part of the reason that devices such as the iPod, iPhone, iPad and iMac were created. Without the creation of those devices, one could only wonder if we'd still be carrying around clunky Discmans and Walkmans (remember those?).

Following the news of Mr. Jobs' death, musicians took to Twitter and Facebook to express their condolences for a life taken to early.
