Another Great One Is Gone

I was saddened to learn of the recent death of a marvelous person and superb singer -- Phoebe Snow. She was only 60 years old. If some of you younger readers haven't heard of this talented lady, I urge you to find one of her albums and give it a listen. She had a great voice and wonderful style. I'm going to miss her.


  1. I can't believe she was only 60; I'm 61, and I thought she was older than me.

    I think I have the album you've pictured on this post. She was a great one indeed. A true original!

  2. so sad..and after devoting 31 years of her life to taking care of her daughter.

  3. Thanks, YDG, for reminding us that Phoebe Snow was not only a great musical talent, but a great mother as well.

    For those who aren't familiar with Phoebe's devotion to her daughter Valerie, here's a link to a 2007 interview with Phoebe in which she speaks about Valerie.

  4. You are both absolutely right. She was every bit as good a mother and human being as she was a talented singer. We could all learn from her loving dedication to her severely disabled child.
