Farrah Fawcett, 1947 - 2009

70's icon and "Charlie's Angels" star Farrah Fawcett sadly lost her battle with cancer and passed away today. I'm a little young to have witnessed her during the actresses glory years, however I've enjoyed the re-runs that I have been able to watch throughout the past few years. And even though it might be a stretch to reference this passing in a disco blog, I think someone could argue that there might not have been a more popular female star during the actual years that the music genre existed. So this blog pays tribute to another fallen angel. Farrah you will be missed.

Pat...You are right. There was no bigger female star from about 1976-1979. I was in junior high when Charlie's Angels started and it's hard to realize today what a phenomenon it was. There were 3 networks plus PBS and that's it. So everyone watched it. There weren't 100s of channels to choose from. Plus, the Charlie's Angels theme definitely has a disco vibe.

So sad about the passing of a true American icon. The 70s wouldn't have been the same without Farrah. R.I.P.
