Koko Taylor, who passed away June 4, 2009, was one of pioneers of the modern blues music which influenced and paved the way for artists like the Beatles. It's one thing to say the Beatles changed the world. It's another to give credit where it is due. Ms. Taylor was one of the first blues singers to come to Chicago from the deep south to bring this music to the masses. She became known to the world as "Queen of the Blues".Please don't forget her and others like Chuck Berry. R.I.P. Koko Taylor!
