He will probably say its fake news...

I overheard on the radio the D.J. and a guest waxxing lyrically about her. "She was undeniably the greatest vocalist ever"

Really?

It's all subjective of course and saying "undeniably the greatest vocalist ever" may be a touch strong but I would say you couldn't name anyone better.

A better vocalist?
Well as you say it subjective yes.

So I would say I could name a dozen better.

Better to my ears would be Chris Cornell, early years Ian Astbury, Neil Hannon, Roy Orbison....

But as you said...

She was a great singer though..

That's very sad news but let's be honest she's no Ajit Wadekar or Jim 'the Anvil' Neidhart is she?


Who are they?

Aretha (or Uretha as my wife keeps saying no matter how often I correct her!) Franklin was one of a select group of people who could be known just by their first names such as Elvis, Ella etc., quite an honour really.

Yes, Ella Fitzgerald. Although to be fair it's maybe only people of more mature years who are likely to know about her. She was rather before my time, but I had friends who were jazz fans who would refer to her as Ella.

Many a childhood fantasy with her as a central feature was had by me. What a gorgeous woman, and I will forever treasure my autographed photo of her that I have (which is not sticky before anyone says anything ;-) )

Burt Reynolds always came over as a genuinely nice guy, and always seemed to have a mischievous gleam in his eye. Probably remembered mostly for the Bandit movies, but I thought he was great in Deliverance, and really liked him in the X-Files episode he was in.

Was in 2 versions of the Longest Yard too.
