You And Me Both, Sister

Etta James 'can't stand' Beyonce

[...]
"The great Beyonce ... I can't stand Beyonce," James said in the clip from a Jan. 31 concert at the Boulevard Casino in Coquitlam, British Columbia. "She has no business up there, singing up there on a big ol' president day, gonna be singing my song that I've been singing forever."
[...]
Etta James is one of my all-time favorites. I don't blame her for getting a bit pissed at some talentless hack stealing her shit and bleating it out in the fucking racist hoe-down commonly referred to as the presidential inauguration.

I don't think I've ever heard of either of them. I can see, though, if it is a "trademark" song of the one, she wouldn't want another person using it. I agree with your assessment of the Coronation of King Obama 100 percent.

Etta James is one of the classics.
Excellent blues singer.

I like smooth jazz but I'm not a fan of the Satchmo kind of wailing.

I have a vulgar picture my brother sent me I want to send to you. I got the red ass just for posting that "boobs" picture on my blog so I don't think I will use it on mine. If you want it send me an email address. I think I had it once but I can't find it.

I would call her style mostly laid back bluesy stuff.
If you get a chance, see if you can give a listen to "At Last", or even better, "I'd Rather Go Blind".

I'll send you an email. I love vulgar stuff. :)
