Lady Sings the Blues

I was recently interviewed by a French Magazine and they asked me to supply them with a short list of people I would have loved to photograph but never did.  My partial answer was Buckminster Fuller, Roy Orbison, Janis Joplin, Alistair Cooke, and on that list was Etta James.  I never met her but evidentally she lived the blues, sang the blues and died by the blues.  If you need a photographic lesson out of this – never hesitate, seize the opportunity of make the opportunity.  RIP EttaImage
