This is so sad. I really like the Pointer Sisters, especially their Blue Thumb recordings.

Extremely talented women.

RIP, June

That is sad. I figured cancer had to be the cause. It's a shame, she should have been with us so much longer.

The Pointer Sisters made some of the best radio hits of the late 70s and early '80s most notably a great rendition of Springsteen's "Fire" and the ebullient "Jump".

Yeah, they did have a certain "something," didn't they? They were quite infectious even when not my cup of tea.

I was pleasantly surprised to see an A.P. obituary mention that the song "Fairytale" was "covered by Elvis Presley."

Yeah, 52...! How sad.
