Such sad news. I grew up listening to my parent's vinyl records, The Boss, McClean, and Dylan, my mother was more in the Turner and Houston camp but Tina in particular ... it still gives me goosebumps hearing some of her songs and all sorts of feelings of nostalgia, always will, the great times of that era but ultimately, the talent in that woman. Wow. With the likes of Houston, difficult to separate the two talent-wise but it ain't about that ... we sadly lost Houston too soon in such a terrible ending as we know ..
The Queen of Rock and Roll indeed .... none of these modern internet-age artists will ever eclipse what Tina had, or for me, it is difficult to see happening. Her human side, Heart and Soul in abundance which she gifted to the music world. She was a one-off and one hell of a woman.
Rarely does someone cover a song and better the original but what she did with Tony Joe White's 'Steamy Windows' ... smashed it and I am sure he would admit himself, it was meant to be. ... that song was made for her. The Queen.
May she Rest in Peace. X
