We Lost a Lady Last Night


As many of you have heard by now, legendary R&B singer Teena Marie was found dead in her home at the age of 54 last night - and I am devastated. I was at a local bar last night having drinks with two of my friends from high school when Sam called and delivered the terrible news. My phone hasn't stop ringing since.


I've blogged about my love for Lady T many times. She was one of the very few artists I would actually pay to see perform, and the ONLY one I saw "live" more than once. I am so upset that I passed up her latest NYC concert (couldn't afford a ticket) - and now I'll never get another chance to hear the "Ivory Queen of Soul" sing one of my favorite songs - Out on a Limb ...


Rest in Peace, my darling Lady T - you will be missed.

"Out on a Limb" is my fave Teena Marie song, too. What a shame to lose her at such a young age. Hang in there, David Darling.
