Rip Annie Ross

Recommended Posts

I was saddened to hear of the death of Annie Ross, singer and actress, she led a colourful life and entertained me in several ways.

 

She wrote a favourite song of mine Twisted, some people might know the Joni Mitchell cover.

 

She provided the voice of Britt Ekland in The Wicker Man.

 

She married the great jazz drummer Kenny Clarke, had an affair with Lenny Bruce, owned a jazz club in London and sang with Lambert, Hendricks & Ross who are not so well known now but were highly feted.

According to the oracle that was Maggie Bell.

 

There was a DI Robbie Ross in Taggart, a memory mashup maybe?
