Darlene Love On Aretha Franklin: ‘Being Near Her Was Like Attending a Master Class’

Description

Darlene Love first met Aretha Franklin in 1957. It was the beginning of a five-decade friendship where they got to share the stage everywhere. Hours after Franklin’s death was announced, Love phoned up Rolling Stone to reflect on Franklin’s genius and their relationship, both personal and professional. Love telling Rolling Stone, "It’s a cliche to say something like there will be another Aretha, but it’s so true. She was one of a kind. There are people who can mimic her, but nobody can ever be her. As I said to my husband the other day, she was a master class. Just being in her presence was like attending a master class."
