Always sucks when a musical icon passes. Nothing but R-E-S-P-E-C-T for her and her family. She will definitely be missed while touring with the giant jam band in the sky.

A true icon. She was the queen and never lost her mind. You see so many greats get lost in drugs and alcohol and just lose what made them special. She was a true role model.

Ya what a loss. I learned to play drums while playing along to her Greatest Hits CD (just followed along with Roger Hawkins)
If you've never seen this, just a great raw concert with Purdie and Billy Preston
