In my opinion there are bands that create music and then there are bands that change music. TLC was one of those bands that absolutely changed music. Of course people could compare them to Salt N Peppa but they had something special, something more than them. Left Eye was easily one of the biggest secret weapons, she could sing, rap, and dance like a mad woman.
Most people are aware of Left Eye’s actions that landed her in trouble, like accidentally lighting her ex-boyfriends house on fire among other things. In 2002 she decided to get clean and take a spiritual journey where she ended up losing her life in a car accident. It is crazy to think that was 12 years ago.
Today Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes would have been 43 and even though she is gone her spirit lives on.
Happy birthday you will never be forgotten for helping change music history forever!
