Lena Zavaroni

Post by paul.austin »

The more i read about her, the more i wish she had never been "discovered" and had remained an unknown, local singer. She might still be alive then.

Danny John-Jules and Bonnie Langford have both stated that they still love and miss their friend Lena.

Well, so do I. She was a dear friend and I and others did everything we possibly could to help her. Although there were undoubtedly some issues surrounding the young age she started in showbiz that didn't help, she suffered from anorexia and might possibly have suffered even if she had remained unknown. The real tragedy is that after many years of hospitalisations, doctors had found a way to alleviate her problem, with complex brain surgery. The surgery was completely successful, but Lena picked up an infection in hospital, and that's what killed her.

I bought her album on ITunes. I certainly prefer her version of "Take Me Home, Country Roads" to John Denver's.
