Saturday Matinee: Eartha Kitt, Sharon & Binky, Willis, Eddie & Keith

by

Eartha Kitt (1927-2008).  She was THE Catwoman.

Sharon Jones, live in France, backed by Binky Griptite & the Dap Kings.

Willis “Gator Tail” Jackson cranks it in 1955.

Now for Something Else:

Eddie Cochran recorded this in 1959.  (Six months later he died in a car crash in England that also injured Gene Vincent and the songwriter, Sharon Sheely.)

Keith Richards’ tribute to Cochran.  Richards died of various drug overdoses and alcohol poisonings in 1967, 1970, 1972, 1983 and several other years since.  He’s still touring.

    You had me scared with the Keith Richards’ entry. But then I realized that Keith Richards will probably overdose and alcohol poison himself for a while yet. If he lives longer than me, … I’ll be dead anyway so I guess it won’t matter.

    LOL, Keith Richards dead but still touring. You crack me up.
