Jukebox Jury: Should Artists’ Careers Continue After Death?
Welcome to Jukebox Jury, our new music debate show where experts face off and a jury of fans decides the winner.
THE CASE: When our musical idols passed away in generations past, they left behind a legacy to remember them by. That wasn’t enough for superstars like Michael Jackson and Amy Winehouse – or perhaps more accurately, their estates – thus spawning posthumous releases featuring outtakes and half-finished material. Career opportunities surrounding our deceased idols are increasing, from reality shows and memoirs for their families (hello, Houston family) to more reissues and compilations for their labels than ever before. As we saw at last year’s Coachella with rapper Tupac, even artist holograms are an option for “live” performance. How much is too much? Should we let our icons live on through their accomplishments in life instead of new developments in death? Or do fans deserve a way for their icons to live on?
