Etta James, whose song, "I'd Rather Go Blind," we close with at the end of each radio show, died yesterday at the age of 73. Brian's band the Three Blind Mice opened for her at the Coach House, in San Juan Capistrano, ten years ago. It was her birthday and he ate birthday cake with her, in her dressing room. RIP, Etta.....Love your music, always.

It is truly sad to loose such a wonderful singer. She will live on through all of her great recordings.

I thought of your program when I heard that she'd died. How cool that Brian got to eat birthday cake with THE Etta James. Thanks for keeping her voice alive!
