SHARON JONES R.I.P. 1956-2016

Sharon Jones, the fiery soul singer who spent decades in obscurity before becoming a Grammy-nominated soul and funk vocalist with her longtime backing band the Dap-Kings, died on November 18, 2016 of pancreatic cancer. She was 60. “We are deeply saddened to announce that Sharon Jones has passed away after a heroic battle against pancreatic cancer,” the singer’s rep wrote in a statement. “She was surrounded by her loved ones, including the Dap-Kings.” Doctors diagnosed Jones with stage two pancreatic cancer in 2013 and removed the singer’s gallbladder, the head of her pancreas and 18 inches of her small intestine. She went into remission nine months later, but announced that the cancer had returned at the premiere of Miss Sharon Jones!, a documentary detailing Jones’ life and career. The cancer would be elevated to stage four, with tumors spreading to her lung, liver and lymph nodes. Jones recorded seven albums with the Dap-Kings, but it was her exhilarating live shows, which functioned as equal parts Baptist church revival, Saturday night juke joint and raucous 1970s Las Vegas revue, that showcased the singer’s unparalleled energy. - Rolling Stone

  3. To be honest I don’t know much about Sharon Jones but I do agree that this year has been horrible because. of all the great ones we have lost starting with David Bowie then Glenn Frey almost back to back , then Paul Kantner and on and on definatly a year to forget , unfortunately more will follow as the great ones all get older

  4. And of course the recent losses of Leon Russell and Leonard Cohen , just read an article where Cohen’s business manager screwed him out of millions a few years ago which is one of the reasons he was still touring at his age , couldn’t have been good for him to keep that pace at his age very sad , similar to what Stan Polley did to Badfinger
