Etta James is gone.

The queen of soul died today, in my opinion the best female Rhythm and Blues Soul singer. A real original that won't be replaced by any other. She never got the chance to ''knock Beyonce out'' for singing At Last at Obama's inaugrial ball.

Etta's manager, Lupe De Leon, confirmed that the singer died in Southern California's Riverside Community Hospital from complications of leukemia. Her husband and her sons were by her side.

Just 5 days before her 74th birthday.

R.I.P Etta.

Jones and White get it together.

Wow, were in the thick of it now arn't we. Two posts in under an hour! Yes! Right the news it that two of my favourite artists have got together. Man I loved Tom Jones's last album of blues and Gospel covers 'Praise and Blame.' His cover of Sister Rosetta Tharpe's Strange Things was immense! 

Well now he's gotten together with a real blues hound, Jack White, and their putting out a single on Third Man Records. It's a re-recording of 'Jezebel' with Mr White producing and is promising to be fantastic! I haven't heard it yet, but I can't bloomin' Wait.  

Over and Out

Grinderman Resurrected

Just as your getting used to the fact that Nick Cave's broken up GRINDERMAN, he's just blooming announced a remix album!

This is an interesting concept with the songs from their GRINDERMAN 2 record being remixed by UNKLE, Nick Zinner from Yeah Yeah Yeahs and good old Barry Adamson....You know Barry, right? I'm looking forward to the double vinyl album version (with cd included) as I have yet to get GRINDERMAN 2 on record! I did order it online but the store had run out and decided not to tell me for 2 weeks!

YourTube 4 - Messiahsez

This episode of YourTube is about a guy that's taught me alot about slide guitar on this youtube page, he's like a mountain man, half crazy and up for a jam. He tells you to feel the music and make love to your guitar. He's got a big big beared and a great collection of hats. Most of his stuff is instrumental slide, but its all slightly off the wall and filled with soul.

Aretha Franklin gets engaged

Just a quick note to say that after a new years break GDTKC will be back in a weekly form from next Tuesday, but first we'd like to congratulate that deep soul diva Aretha Franklin on her engagement to her long term friend and partner Willie Wilkerson

Aretha Franklin stated that "We're looking at June or July for our date, and no, I'm not pregnant, LOL!," I've popped under a great song of hers from The Blues Brothers Film. Hope you get a kick out of it.
