The incomparable “Queen of the Blues”, Koko Taylor, has passed today due to complications from a recent surgery to correct a gastrointestinal bleed, according to her website. Any lover of the blues, such as myself, is most definitely suffering a serious case of the blues upon hearing this terribly sad news. If you do not have Koko in your musical library, do yourself a favor and include some, if not all, of her recordings. This is a voice, and woman, who cannot be replaced and will most definitely be missed. RIP Koko Taylor 1928-2009. Read the rest of this entry »
What a great tribute Keith Olbermann gave to his mom, Marie Olbermann, on Countdown tonight. She passed away this past Saturday, April 4th, from cancer. I’m not really quite sure how Keith made it through without losing it (I know I was shedding a few tears, along with the laughs), but in his incomparable Keith style he was able to make us all feel like we knew his mother, Marie. After watching the segment, it’s plain to see that Keith is the male version of the very witty, sarcastic, and endearing Marie. What a character she apparently was, and how obvious it is that she’ll be missed by not only Keith and their family, but by many others. Our thoughts are with you, Keith. R.I. P. Marie Olbermann.
