RIP Etta James


The news broke yesterday that Etta James had passed away at the age of 73. She passed away from complications of leukemia. She had been sick for awhile. Etta was a star and her reputation superseded her. They call it the blues for a reason. She lived a rough life and her pain was heard in her voice but damn did it make for some beautiful music. We'll miss you Etta.


Here's one of my favorite songs:
