‘Poetry Man’ Singer/Songwriter Dies

Singer-songwriter Phoebe Snow died in New York today at the age of 58 due to complications of a massive hemorrhagic stroke she suffered last year.

From CNN:

Snow “fought for almost a year-and-a-half to come back, enduring bouts of blood clots, pneumonia, and congestive heart failure, each time coming out of it, until her body finally could take it no more,” manager Sue Cameron said.

She suffered the stroke in January 2010, just after she completed recording new songs and as she was rehearsing with her band for a series of weekly shows in New York, Cameron said.

    That’s a shame… after persevering and bouncing back and persevering. I guess sometimes, no matter how strong the Will, how much the Determination, and how hard the Fight, it’s just not possible to Win.
    I’m sure I can’t imagine how difficult it must have been to even try to overcome something like that. RIP.
