Mariska Veres: 1947-2006

Former Shocking Blue singer Mariska Veres succumbed to cancer yesterday. She was 59 years old.

Her glory days were long gone, but she will always be remembered for lending her voice to classic songs like Mighty Joe, the worldwide smash hit Venus and Love Buzz (yes, Nirvana lovers, this is the original).

The Raconteurs opened their set at the Lowlands festival in The Netherlands with Send Me A Postcard, but modern days indie kids failed to recognize the tribute. Sic Transit Gloria Mundi.
