Blues legend Koko Taylor died yesterday at the age of 80. She was a giant among blues giants, and was one of the first women blues singers I listened to. Hearing her voice when I was just a teenager is in large part why I have been a lifelong fan of the blues. This is a sad day, but Ms Taylor lived a good long life and brought so much joy and enrichment to people all over the world.
