She was 80. Breaking news here.
A great voice is silenced.
I love her work, sad to hear of her passing.
So sorry to hear that - her music brought great joy to my life.
Damn. I’m sorry to hear that.
They’ll be pitchin’ a wang dang doodle up in heaven. All night long … alllllll night long.
She was at the Hot Springs Blues Festival last year, and I didn’t go.
Shake hands with the Devil, make him crawl in the sand.
I had a chance to sing with her (random background vocals) at the Mint in Los Angeles about 11 years ago.
She was a classy lady, and she will be missed.
Saw her at Lupo’s Heartbreak Hotel in Providence, RI many years ago. Today, I’m glad I did.
Well said. Thanks for the music Koko!
Damn, not many of the old blues legends are still with us. I loved her “Wade in the Water” album and Koko’s Hound Dog was by far the better version
