Loved 'em! The last pic in the series referenced above (see no evil, hear no evil, and Johnette as "I'll say whatever the .... I want" was taken and arranged by me backstage at one of their Orlando, FL shows. They were gracious and game for anything, and a great band.

Underated Los Angeles band with a kick ass singer. We all know the hits like Joey, Someday, Wendytime and Walking in London. However every album has a handful of tracks that become just aa liked. Heal It up, Mexican Moon, Ghost of a Ladies Man and Caroline are some of my favs. If you like bands like The Cranberries, PJ Harvey, Hole, L7 or Garbage, Concrete Blonde was before all of them. And was even better than any of rhose in my opinion. Listen to Dance Along the Edge.
