"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."" http://leisureblogs.chicagotribune....cago-blues-legend-koko-taylor-dies-at-80.html Sorry to hear this. I love listening to Koko Taylor. She was fantastic!
