She was a great singer. I really love her old stuff from the 70's. And also that funky song she did in the 90's "Justified and Ancient" with KLF.
Hers is a pretty interesting story if you ever get the chance to read it - the book by her daughter tells all.
And her husband, who claimed to "love" her so much - turned around and married a Dallas Cowboy cheerleader months after Tammy's death and recently had a child!
Tammy is a sore subject on FAD - if you've read the email her husband sent Scott.
I had the priviledge to visit her grave in Tennessee back in July. It's inside the main building attached to the funeral home. A pretty creepy walk - down the long halls of all the other tombs - feeling as if you are being "watched". And also there is a columbarian in there of cremated remains in glass niches - complete with personal objects inside next the urns.
If you ever get a chance to visit the Columbarian in San Francisco and like haunted places - that's the place to go! Really creepy and weird in there!
Anyway , Tammy has a couple of framed pictures hung on the tomb - one of her and the other of her grown kids and there was a big spray of flowers next to the tomb - from her "loving" husband George Richey. :rolleyes:
My friend and I took a few pictures next to the tomb, and I told her how we'd been listening to some of her songs in the car on the way there.
After we visited her, we went outside to the grounds and stopped by to say "howdy" to Marty Robbins. Weird thing - his song "El Paso" kept going thru my head as we walked away from his grave.
