November 24, 2015 – Cynthia Robinson

Cyntha & SlyThere have been quite a few times that I’ve mentioned Cynthia Robinson throughout the two years I’ve been blogging. I’m glad I got to pay tribute to her and saddened at the news of her death. In case you don’t know, Cynthia Robinson was the trumpet player for Sly and the Family Stone, and was a true musical icon of the 1960s and a pioneer for women, all because she just wasn’t interested in playing the flute. And of course, she is an important part of my fitness routine. Only last night I marveled at her talents during “Higher” as I exercised to my best of Sly CD, and her ordering us all to get up and “Dance to the Music.” She died of cancer yesterday at the age of 69.

This is a rare Tuesday post on The Walrus Was Paul, but to Cynthia Robinson I’d like to say thanks one more time, and farewell.
