Blues guitarist, songwriter and singer, Bonnie Raitt has a birthday today. Bonnie turns 70. She released her first album just titled "Bonnie Raitt," in 1971 at the age of 22. It was a straight ahead Blues album. Two song on that album "Women Be Wise" and "Mighty Tight Woman" were both written by Sippie Wallace. Years later she got the chance to record both of those songs, with Sippie Wallace. Bonnie considered it an honor.
Bonnie Raitt shot to super stardom wih the release of "Something to Talk About," from the album "Luck of the Draw" in 1991.
Bonnie is a fan all music. In 1977 she released the album "Sweet Forgiveness," and it included a cover of Del Shannon's "Runaway." She totally re-worked the song and Blused (I made up a new word there) the heck out of it!!!
And that's how we will celebrate Bonnie Raitt's birthday!
