Kay Starr Died

Kay Starr (pictured above with Louis Armstrong, left and Tony Bennett), whose #1 song "Rock And Roll Waltz" was one of the biggest hits early in the Rock Era (#1 for 6 weeks) has died at the age of 94.  Starr passed away last night at her home in Los Angeles from complications of Alzheimer's disease.

Starr was popular in the big band era, but was so adaptable that she enjoyed Country hits and then scored her biggest hit as Rock & Roll emerged.

Kay continued to perform for decades after leaving the charts to enthusiastic audiences.
