RIP - Koko Taylor

Koko Taylor dead at 80. Hands down, she was one of the best and most underrated blues singers, male or female. She may have had a lot of fans, but she definitely does not get the recognition she deserves today (including in Cadillac Records, which included Etta James but apparently completely ignored Koko's work with the record label or the fact that other women not named "Etta" sang for the Chess company, too).
