RIP Tura Satana, 1935-2011

Sad news from BQ HQ: According to her close friend and manager, Siouxzan Perry, Tura Luna Pascual Yamaguchi (aka Tura Satana) passed away yesterday in Reno, NV. A press release is expected in the next few days, as well as a memorial page on which people can share their memories of Tura and messages of condolence with her family. In the meantime, Siouxzan has requested that friends and fans respect the privacy of the family, at least until such time as any plans to honor Tura’s memory publicly can be made.
