Very sad. I think everyone has an image of Aretha Franklin, but perhaps us fans of The Blues Brothers have a further appreciation of her, beyond the R&B powerhouse, and into the feisty, funny, very human character she dished up in BB and BB2K. She'll be missed by so many, and for so many personal reasons. Rest in peace.

- scmods, I updated the thread title. RIP Aretha.
Thanks for the video/music links, lads. I was looking for a certain performance from 1968 that I remembered watching on youtube years ago, I can't remember what the old TV show was, instead I found this ABC News Special from 1968. It was uploaded less than 2 years ago and it's excellent. Quite a cool slice of history, maybe it's been uploaded before but I don't recall seeing this special, not in it's entirety anyway ...
