Legendary blues singer/musician KoKo Taylor, best known as the â€œQueen Of The Bluesâ€, has died on Wednesday (June 3) at the Northwestern Memorial Hospital after complications from surgery for a gastrointestinal bleed. Koko was 80 years old.
“The passion that she brought and the fire and the growl in her voice when she sang was the truth,” blues singer and musician Ronnie Baker Brooks said Wednesday. “The music will live on, but it’s much better because of Koko. It’s a huge loss.”
R.I.P. Koko Taylor!!
