Chicago Blues great Koko Taylor has passed away.

That's really sad. I remember seeing her at a club (probably on Lincoln Ave.) back in the day. I told her I was moving to Paris the next week. She hugged me and told me to take care of myself.

It was the best send-off a guy from Chicago, new to foreign countries, could have gotten.

RIP.
