RIP Koko Taylor

Koko Taylor was the meanest interview I'd ever conducted in my life. She was incredibly hostile, didn't want to answer any questions, put me on hold while conducting other interviews, hung up on me, and called me back only to refuse to answer any more questions. I wanted to scream, "Look, woman, I'm promoting your album here!"

But hey, Koko passed today, and she still sang one of my favorite songs of all-time.

So, Rest in Peace, Koko Taylor.

She performed on campus in about 91 or 92 and I went. It was a great show.

She was a Chicago icon. The blues, even if I didn't prefer her style of it, has lost a flagbearer.
