RIP: Fontella Bass

 The voice behind one of pop music's most recognizable -- and, dare I say, best -- singles died Wednesday, at 72. Fontella Bass' life was marred by many of the same things that affected other singers of the era -- deprived of proper credit, royalty disputes -- but her mega hit "Rescue Me" will never be forgotten.
