All good things must come to an end, even the careers of famous people. At some point you run out of fuel and decided to call it a day. It’s pretty hard to make it as a successful recording artist in the music industry. Having even short term success is nearly impossible, let alone maintaining a career over the course of a life time.

In the big scheme of things, there are really only a handful of people who are able to obtain that status, and for one reason or another, a pretty good chunk of them have decided to call it quits recently. Here is a list of famous musicians who are retiring between 2018 and 2019.

  • Paul Simon
  • Elton John
  • Bob Seger
  • Ozzy Osbourne
  • Lynyrd Skynyrd
  • Slayer

And rumor has it that Fleetwood Mac will also be retiring, but that remains to be seen. Elton John, Bob Seger, Fleetwood Mac, and Skynyrd will all be coming to Minnesota one final time within the next year. Get those tickets while you still can.
