CNN is reporting that blues legend Koko Taylor has passed away:

Koko Taylor, a West Tennessee sharecropper’s daughter who went to Chicago, Illinois, with “35 cents and a box of Ritz Crackers” at 24 and wound up an award-winning blues legend, died Wednesday at her Chicago home at 80.

One of the best of the Chicago Blues singers. I’ll post some videos.
