OK, We have had the usual grief fest and sick jokes-type threads on her recent demise, but I would like to sound out fellow Arrsers on her so-called iconic status as a musical artist (hence the forum). As the father of a 27 year old daughter (leave off, she is spoken for! ), I can empathise with her family, who must be shattered by her death. However, I am a bit miffed by all the "legend" comments appearing in today's press. It may be a sign of old age, but I don't rate any of her musical output as great and I personally don't think she will be remembered in years to come as an artist who radically changed the music scene or influenced many other artists (a sign of true genius). A decent voice, granted, but "legend"? Leave it out. I suspect similar tributes to appear if and when Pete Doherty decides to check out early and in that case, it would be a major p*ss take! Now, if you want to check out a female artist who checked out early, who happened to be unique and with an almost unbelievable back-story, google a certain Judee Sill.
