Phoebe Snow RIP

(Gibson) Singer-songwriter and '70s star Phoebe Snow has died. Known for her 1974 hit "Poetry Man" as well as collaborations with Paul Simon and Linda Ronstadt, the bluesy-voiced singer passed away from complications following a 2010 brain hemorrhage, according to Entertainment Weekly. She was 58.

Although Snow's self-titled debut album was a big success in the mid-'70s, her career was challenged by the care needed for her daughter, Valerie. She was born in 1975 with a severe brain injury.

"Occasionally I put an album out, but I didn't like to tour, and [the albums] didn't get a lot of label support," she told the San Francisco Chronicle in 2008. "But you know what? It didn't really matter because I got to stay home more with Valerie, and that time was precious." more on this story
