Whenever I think of Nicolette Larson, I get sad. I wish she was still here to grace us with her beautiful voice and sing some new songs.
She’s known for her hit record “Lotta Love” recorded in 1978—a cover of the old Neil Young song. After that, she put out more great music, but never became that big name in the music business that she deserved. I’ve never understood the music business. Never have, never will.
She died in 1997 of cerebral edema and liver failure, leaving behind her husband and 7-year-old daughter. I cried when I heard the news.
But let’s not cry now. Let’s watch and listen to Nicolette singing “When You Get a Little Lonely,” recorded in 1986 at an outdoor concert in St. Clairsville, Ohio.
