I hate to be the bearer of bad news but disco queen Donna Summer has died after a battle with cancer.  She was 63 years old.  Were you a rocker or into the disco thing?  I was a rocker for sure but still loved going to the clubs to watch the dancers and drink free beer.  Hey, the perks of rock radio in the early 80′s, you know.

Insiders say she wanted to keep the disease quiet, and a friend said that as recently as two weeks ago, Summer seemed okay and was even finishing up work on a new album.

The five-time Grammy winner shot to fame in the 1970s with songs like ‘Love to Love You Baby,’ ‘Hot Stuff’ and ‘Bad Girls,’ and continued her reign on radio airwaves into the ’80s with hits including ‘She Works Hard for the Money’ and ‘This Time I Know It’s for Real.’

Summer was also the first artist to have three consecutive double albums reach No. 1 on the US Billboard chart.
