Etta James has left us at the age of 73. Here’s a nice writeup from the newspaper of her original hometown. That was one big, hard, beautiful life.
This is a nice video, for the haunting song and performance, and for the slow display of wonderful images. Really nice job.
Uncle John saw Ms. James just a few years back at a nice big outdoor venue with some family. His 12-year-old niece left less than half-way through the show, because, quote, “Etta was so raunchy that it scared her.”
Yep. She did not hold back in that department.
RIP, Etta James.
