RIP, Etta James

January 20, 2012

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.
