    The Go-Gos were great. I just think the Bangles were so much better at everything, and had more musicianship.

    I disagree that the Runaways were a true man-made band. Their image was taken advantage of, so in that accord, the image was man-made. They were women who just wanted to rock out, and to get there, they naively trusted the process. That was a mistake. They weren't hand-picked, like the boy bands of the 80s/90s, you know?

    Either way, those groups, along with Heart (who kicked down the door for females everywhere), should be commended for doing what they did in rock-n-roll. Also, lest I forget, Suzy Quattro, who was the inspiration for Joan Jett.
    Never really developed a taste for tequila. Kind of hard to understand how you make a drink out of something that sharp, inhospitable. Now, bourbon is easy to understand.

    That's who I figured you were referring to. Nancy Sinatra wasn't bad. Not great, but not bad.

    I'd be up for Lita Ford if I didn't know her history. That was one dirty girl.

    Watching a concert by Chris Isaak on the AXS channel, from 2012. Now things may have changed since, but it warmed my heart to see his band was still the exact same guys who were with him on the Chris Isaak Show on Showtime, some 8 years before. That was a great show.

    That was a great show - very underrated.

    True story - I dated a girl in Bahrain who later introduced me to a friend of hers who I married a year later. The first girl was dating Chris Isaak (at the same time, yes I have that kind of pull) who I met when we all took a trip to Dubai that same year.

    Chris Isaak is a (not) guilty pleasure of mine. So far from where my tastes usually run, which I define as "80's post-punk", but I'm just such a sucker for his smooth crooning style. And his band is top notch.

    Jeezuz I'm old. I remember listening to that and a lot of holdovers from 1987 that year as I was living in my first apartment away from home on Uptown Ave in Minneapolis. Nothing's Shocking got a lot of playing time along with Document, Kiss Me, Kiss Me, Kiss Me, Pleased to Meet Me, Strangeways, Uplift Mofo Party Plan, Surfer Rosa, Viva Hate, Tender Prey, Truth and Soul....

    Yes! Great list. I forgot about Uplift Mofo Party Plan. Itís been ages since I listened to that one and The Cure as well. Iíll have to spin those again soon.

    WOTS is that some sort of AC/DC could be working on a new album. Brian Johnson, Phil Rudd, Angus Young and Stevie Young have all been spotted in Vancouver the past couple days. Vancouver is where they've made all of their albums the past two decades.

    God, I love 'em, but stop. Retire. His vocals are shot (even more so than 10 years ago). Don't become KISS. It might already be too late.

    Brian Johnson is going to be 71 in October. I have no idea who is playing bass, as Cliff Williams retired after the last tour, saying that "it wasn't AC/DC anymore". Malcolm is dead. Somehow they've made up with Phil Rudd.

    At this point I'm just hoping that the album is not a complete disaster.
