Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes (May 27, 1971 — April 25, 2002).
It’s been 7 years since Ms. Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes was taken from us. TLC and the world have never quite been the same since. In January of this year her family in conjunction with Mass Appeal Entertainment released her first (and, hopefully, not only) posthumous solo release, Eye Legacy.
It’s somewhat a reworking of Supernova (her first true solo release that was only released overseas in 2001) with some songs from thoses sessions and from FanMail as well that were not released.
In anticipation of that release I interviewed her brother, Ron Lopes, in a popolio podcast. I also dedicated a MY TOP 10 to her videos counting down to the release date of Eye Legacy on January 27, 2009.
Let’s remember Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes, her exploits (both solo and with TLC), and never forget. Here’s to the dynamic and outspoken personality, the great music left behind, and a legacy that was cut way, way too short. LEFT EYE FOREVER!!!
