    Here are some pics from the 2005 Fountain Blues Festival in San Jose. I'd Rather go Blind is about as powerful a piece of blues as you'll ever find. She was practically giving the chair a lap dance; a nasty ol' broad until the end. Watch Cadillac Records.

      Etta's "Sugar on the Floor" is one of my all time favorite blues songs. Amazing!! And her version of "These Little Things" should be the standard on how that song should be sung.

      Etta James' death hit me, personally, much harder than Whitney Houston's (not taking anything away from Ms. Houston).
      "In many ways, the work of a critic is easy. We risk very little yet enjoy a position over those who offer up their work and their selves to our judgment. We thrive on negative criticism, which is fun to write and to read. But the bitter truth we critics must face, is that in the grand scheme of things, the average piece of junk is probably more meaningful than our criticism designating it so. But there are times when a critic truly risks something, and that is in the discovery and defense of the new. The world is often unkind to new talent, new creations, the new needs friends." - Anton Ego
