I read about the loss of Peggy Lee first thing this morning, but wasn’t ready to comment on it until just now. On second thought, I’m still not ready.
But I will say this: Tonight I’ll play my well-worn copy of her Greatest Hits, sip a lovely tumbler of Oban, and remember what it felt like the first time I heard that voice.
We’ve lost Ella, Billie, Carmen… and now Peggy. There are none left.
