TGIF Throwback — Etta James (January 25, 1938 – January 20, 2012)

(Written back in April 2011)

Not only is Jamesetta Hawkins alive, but this foxy lady was on Dancing with the Stars (never seen the show) in 2009.  In that same year she toured North America and was awarded the 2009 Soul/Blues Female Artist of the Year.  Damn.  That’s hot.

  1. I bought The Chess Box: Etta James on iTunes a few weeks ago. This woman is a-freaking-mazing!

    AND — I hope this doesn’t creep you out, but I had a dream about you a month or so ago. I woke up and one of your posts was in my inbox and I was like ahhh I have to tell her…and then i forgot. I don’t even remember what the dream was about.

    I hope you’re well, friend. Will I see you back east this fall for a certain 10 year celebration?

  2. Beyonce’s version of “I’d Rather Go Blind” was pretty good in the movie but Etta’s version is the simply the definitive one….

    • I’ve never seen the movie. Not much of a Beyonce fan–she’s hot–knows how to make that money–maybe i’ll check it out. Thanks for reading, Mark.


  3. I don’t really know many Beyonce songs. It seems to me like she has a nice voice but doesn’t always choose good material. Ever hear this one? In 1964 it was a big hit and was my favorite song….
