Quote: Back in the 80's we pretty much lived, breathed Bangles 24/7 which was anything but a healthy situation. It was just what we felt we had to do to "make it" and i guess we were right about that. We've chosen to do things differently now--actually our family lives dictate this--and we approach the band as one of the ways in which we are creative and musical, not as our raison d'etre. It seems to work best this way.

Culture is what we make it ...yes it
Quote:It's possible--she's a very natural musician.
Quote: Oh, my. Ambitious, are we? Actually, our position on the bass player situation is this: when Michael left, we decided not to try and "replace" her with a new member. It was too fraught with emotional baggage and besides, we realised that the three of us worked well as a unit. So, instead, we tapped into an amazing talent pool here in LA of women bass players. Abby is a true talent (i've known her since she was 16) and an incredible bass player and we're lucky to have her when she's available to play with us. We've set no hard and fast rules about who contirbutes to a Bangles recording (obviously) but have no plans right now to write with any of our bass players.
Quote: i had a blast playing with Kathy. She's wonderful. The show is still "officially" in development, so we're keeping all digits crossed. You'll hear it first here on the site if it goes....
Quote: i'm loving the bass--it's completely different and i'm still a neophyte, but i'm learning!
Quote: Oh, sure. Debbi and i have played bass, both Susanna and i played some keys on the last recording....Sue's a pretty good drummer!
Quote:Oddly, no. i would have to brush up on my Drifters stuff now, though...at one point i was playing a set with the Bangles, getting on a plane, landing and playing a two-hour show with the Drifters...
Quote: i am so there with you on that! Yay Gracie!!!

Quote: i've been lucky and haven't been disappointed--except when we first met Alex Chilton, but that changed when i got to New Olreans!--i think meeting Paul McCartney and Paul Simon was pretty amazing...singing with Elvis Costello...!!!

Quote: i'm glad you like "Light My Way," we like it too ... i'm a big fan of vinyl and still have a working turntable which i use regularly... it's not impossible to dream of a Bangles vinyl... we'll just have to see...

Quote: My kids have played it, but i haven't tried it yet. Sounds like so much fun (but it is my day job, sooo....) How'bout "Hazy Shade'? That riff can be a challenge...

Quote: i'm afraid that i tend to list my favorite as whatever i'm reading at the moment! i've always loved F.Scott Fitzgerald and Jane Austen...Have you ever read Larry Brown? Amazing Mississippi author...i think when i was 15 i was Beatles obsessed 'cause i hated disco and that was on the radio!
Quote: i had the chance to talk to her when we filmed a GG episode--she was so sweet and has the most incredible blue eyes--a real beauty. Your friend has good taste...

Quote: The simplest reason is that my family home did not have a piano, and also the Beatles had such an influence on me that i found myself attracted to the guitar first. right away i approached it mainly from the angle of songwriting... Then there's also the fact that that salesman showed up at my door - you can read more about that auspicious day here...

Quote:You can't go wrong with Les Paul custom! You can get more than a Les Paul sound from it - especially with pedals. It's a guitar that will never lose its value, and it's heavy enough to use as a free weight for excercising!
