Chicago blues legend Koko Taylor dies at 80
"The Chicago musical icon died Wednesday at age 80 of complications from gastrointestinal surgery less than four weeks after her last performance, at the Blues Music Awards in Memphis, Tenn. There she collected her record 29th Blues Music Award, capping an era in which she became the most revered female blues vocalist of her time with signature hits "Wang Dang Doodle," "I'm a Woman" and "Hey Bartender.""

Man, Koko was legend. I love her "Come to Momma", it's my fav by her.
Back when I was a teen in the late 70's I fell in love with the blues (and jazz). I loved Koko's voice and her style. I can't remember who introduced me to her music, but I then found Muddy Waters and Bo Diddly. It was my introduction into that type of blues.
Rest in Peace Koko you will be missed."Three things in human life are important: The first is to be kind; the second is to be kind; and the third is to be kind." ~ Henry James
