Etta James, R.I.P.

At Last

Etta James has died at the age of 73.

The legendary "At Last" singer died from complications from leukemia; she also suffered from dementia and hepatitis C.

“This is a tremendous loss for the family, her friends and fans around the world,” her Lupe De Leon said in a statement. “She was a true original who could sing it all – her music defied category.”

I saw Etta James with the Grateful Dead during the New Year's run in SF Oakland back in the day '82. Wow.
