Chilled Just what's needed at the end of a stressful day. Cheers!
Sam Cooke, what a genius he was.
Cooke died at the age of thirty-three in 1964. The details of the case involving Cooke's death are still in dispute.
Singer Etta James claimed that she viewed Cooke's body in the funeral home and that the injuries she observed were well beyond what could be explained by the official account of a woman having fought with Cooke. James described Cooke as having been so badly beaten that his head was nearly separated from his shoulders, his hands were broken and crushed, and his nose mangled.
