  • RIP KoKo Taylor

    Koko Taylor, a Chicago musical icon who became one of the most revered female blues vocalists of her time with signature hits such as "Wang Dang Doodle," "I'm a Woman" and "Hey Bartender," died Wednesday at Northwestern Memorial Hospital in Chicago of complications from gastrointestinal surgery. She was 80.

    KoKo was one of the first blues concerts I ever saw, maybe 20 years ago. Great voice and a great performer.
    As it turns out, I was never banned. I was wrong yet again. First Obama, now this. :)

    Koko deservedly was considered to be the Queen of the Blues. I had the pleasure of seeing her last public performance on May 7, 2009 at the Blues Music Awards in Memphis.

      When ever I heard her sing, I never had to ask "Who is that?" There was no missing the voice. The world of blues is a little less with her gone. Koko Taylor...R.I.P.
      Ride hard and don't look back...
