Fussy Evil Genius
I just heard that about an hour ago. I didn't realize that she only was in her mid-70s.
 
This is the one song that never fails to “get” to me, lump-in-the-throat-wise.

And this...well, the sight of Soul Sister Number One wearing house slippers always cracks me up.

RIP, Aretha.

And 'Think' with the Blues Brothers was great.
 
There are so many wonderful clips to appreciate. This one really struck me. Video and audio quality is so-so terrible. The improvisation? Oh wow . . . .

Won't be replaced. Very few had her effortless power. Lots can crank it out, but she made it look easy. Listening to Chain of Fools right now (I love the guitar in that song- there is something magical about the tone).
