31/1/2012 – Just on spec birthday special

January 31, 2012

Yes today is my birthday, So tonight’s theme of sorts is getting old…..

Firstly we at just on Spec would like to pay tribute to Etta James.  Born Jamesetta Hawkins on January 25, 1938, Etta James became one of the voices of Chess records and Blues music. Her Booming soulful voice will live on in great songs as At Last, I’d Rather be Blind and Tell Mamma. She Battled drugs and many bad romances but  leukemia finally beat her. Etta died on January 20, 2012, just five days before her 74th birthday. We here at Just on spec would like to show our respect and love to Etta and the music she made. A couple of good tributes here
