Kerry Woo and Sis ta Smiff (yeah, I know it’s three different links. I’m never exactly sure were she is right now…) have been working to turn me on to the angelic vocal stylings of Eva Cassidy. While I sure enjoy listening to her sing, it’s kind of a mixed bag seeing as she is no longer living.
I have a bad history of discovering musical artists either just before or right after they die. So I’ve gotten used to not being able to find new music. I bought my first Muddy Waters album (on vinyl) a week before he died. I was about six months late on Howlin’ Wolf.
I skipped the last Stevie Ray Vaughan concert at Starwood because I figured, “Hell I’ve seen him 5-6 times already, and now that he’s finally kicked heroin he’ll live forever.”
And I’m still waiting on that new Mozart CD.
So if you’ll excuse me, I think I’ll go put on some David Hasselhoff. (Fingers crossed.)
