RIP ARETHA FRANKLIN

Damn

She apparently passed at home with Hospice care following a long illness which she'd kept private.

Never had been and there will never be a voice like hers again, ever.

GODDAMMIT

Aretha Franklin and Billie Holiday are the two greatest female vocalists, hands down , that the world will ever see.

Too soon and not a good end. RIP to a great performer.

Better throw Etta James in there.

A gigantic loss. RIP.
I checked you out, and I now want you to take the journey to lick my taint. It's small, but vast.

She was so good for so long. The best - I'll take her over this sexy crew of hootchie mamas that scored hit records the past 20 years or so, and I'd do it 10 out of 10 times.

The Queen of soul. No question about it.
I would rather be seen wearing an Invicta than a Hublot - at least I can explain away the Invicta.

I would agree. Come on, Triple, let's not let politics bleed out of the Policy Room.
