Aretha Franklin Dead at 76.
« on: August 16, 2018, 08:31:40 am »
Often called the Queen of soul, Aretha Franklin was one of the greatest singers
of the 20th century. Gone at the age of 76, but not forgotten. It's likely she
will be remembered as one of histories greatest singers.

A fine piano player as well she was playing and singing before she was in
her teens. 50 years, and over 75 albums. Singing at Obama's inauguration,
and many many other special events, she was loved by millions.

Totally bummed. But totally blest to have heard her stuff. The real musician generation is dying out. In our time if you didn't have talent it didn't matter what you looked like. You weren't going to make it. Folks today don't have what we had. Take away the autotune and the lip singing and 80% of what's called 'talent' today wouldn't make it.

RIP Aretha. Total Respect.
