Blues Legend Koko Taylor Died

Koko Taylor used to make regular stops in Salt Lake City on her way from somehwere to somewhere else. She sang in a small downtown club where almost every seat was a front row seat. It was called the Zephyr. There was a dance floor. And in those days I danced. Koko always packed the place and usually on a Thursday night. I heard her sing this song. Saw sweat drop from her face to her chest and glisten there. She was one of the great Blues legends. I'm sad she will no longer be belting out the great Blues songs of her lifetime. We will miss you Koko.
