Etta James.

The great Etta James left us all today.
My own favourite: I'd rather be blind. (Rod Stewart did a reasonable cover of it back in the '70's).
Here's Etta.

Beth Hart is also pretty good.

I'm 80 and I had no idea who she was until I looked her up on the Internet and played one of her songs,blues was never one of my favorites so that's why I didn't know her. They said she used drugs a lot. Sadly its her life to live or die,I have no time for performers that use drugs.

Alex, I tell it like it is, I said I didn't know of her, or her singing, I looked her up to see who she was, and then posted what they said about her. The blues was not my kind of music so perhaps that's why I know nothing about her.

Not being a life-long non-smoking teetotaller, I wouldn't like to judge others but I'm pretty certain the vast majority of the music and lyrics I love in many genres were produced under the influence of various 'heady' substances. Wagner and Elgar may be exceptions although I hae me doots about Wagner. Flying Valkyries, eh?
