New Orleans Loses Blues Icon


Byline: Associated Press

New Orleans blues singer-pianist Eddie Bo, who worked with such musicians as Irma Thomas and Art Neville, has died. He was 79.

Bo, whose real name was Edwin Joseph Bocage, had a heart attack.

Bocage was an accomplished keyboardist-pianist with a career spanning more than five decades. An accomplished songwriter, Bocage penned the 1960 Etta James hit "My Dearest Darling" and "Im Wise," which was made famous by Little Richard when renamed and released in 1956 as "Slippin and Slidin."

Natasha Richardson, a gifted and precocious heiress to acting royalty whose career highlights included the film "Patty Hearst" and a Tony-winning performance in a stage revival of "Cabaret," has died. She was 45.

She also appeared in New York in a production of Patrick Marbers "Closer" (1999) as well as 2005 revival of Tennessee Williams "A Streetcar Named Desire," in which she played Blanche opposite John C.
