    You could tell what she was saying in between the gratuitous obscenities?

    Wanna hear something funny about Chrissy?

    Bones can tell you.....:lol:

    I doubt he will though.

    Crikey, I always found Chrissie utterly captivating and most alluring, but now that you have actually raised the subject, personally I cannot think of any notion (however unfathomably unlieky) that could have conjured up a headier mix of utter euphoria .. and blind terror ;)

    Wonderful performer and writer.
    Effortlessly veering between strong, soft and bitter sweet.

    Big fan. Big respect.

    IIRC, in the Pretenders' "Loose in L.A." video, Chrissie asks how she can get a little action in L.A. and it doesn't sound like she's kidding.

    A rock star having to ask how to get some action -- in LA of all places -- is a little... sad.

    Re. your signature. I always thought that Humphrey Bogart made that comment. I seem to recall that Lauren Bacall quoted him as saying it in her bio book. It was many years ago when I read it, so I may be wrong, do you have a source for it?

    Oh Gosh! I see, kind of like asking how long is a piece of string... apologies.

    Back to Chrissie. Reading this thread recalled to mind that great song she wrote 'Private Life'. From there to re-listening to the 1st album for the first time in many years. What an extraordinary record that was, esp. at that time when punk was all over the place. To bring out a finely crafted piece of rock/pop really was a masterstroke. She has the kind of vocal chops that owe a debt to Dusty too. Something that I'm sure she would acknowledge, she seems like someone who is a pop historian. A true pro, she only steals from the best... kind of like the signature! ;)

    Interesting... I saw them '84 (I think) at Red Rocks and the volume was too low at that concert too. Sound quality was good, but needed to be a little louder.
