Quote: I love lots of Paul McCartney's bass lines, especially late ones, like on Abbey Road. And, to challenge myself, I used to try to imitate Stanley Clarke...

Quote: I did see it. I think they overemphasized the quarrels within the band. Maybe they needed a "hook" and there were no drugs or alcohol to dwell on (unlike most of those Behind the Musics) so they decided to make it sound like a long cat fight instead. That was unfair. Although things did get tense towards the end, that need not have been the main story.I was supposed to be interviewed, but then the directors decided to just zoom through the early years and spend lots of time on the supposed messy break-up, so they left me out (except for one micro-second photo). That's fine with me.In fact (you heard it here first) Vicki and I are going to be working on kind of an unusual project about the Bangles that we're hoping to publish as a book. It won't be out for a (long) while since we've barely started writing it yet, but I think you'll find it fun and interesting when it eventually appears.

Quote: This one I haven't heard about. You'll have to ask Vicki when she has her own chat. (Sounds like one she might have kept from me for good reason!)

the 5th Bangle
Quote: What a tough question! I think that a lot of bands don't get a chance because record labels are so anxious to find the next Brittney or the next Backstreet Boys. Good music (even good, topselling music, like Bruce Springsteen) never seems to be found anywhere on the radio. It's very strange.

Quote: You're right that she's a vegetarian. She has been for eons...maybe since 1982 or so. As for her reasons, I think it's a combination of your list. Once again, you'll have to bug Gracie to get Vicki to do a chat (I'll bug her too on your behalf) because she could answer better than I could. She's certainly healthy as a result of it. (Her cats and dog, I should add, are not vegetarian...)

Quote: I suppose anything is possible, but Vicki and Debbi might veto the idea, since the tape is a little raw. The version of James is interesting, though, since we used to do it with just bass and drums, doing kind of a reggae beat, with Vicki singing over nothing but the rhythm track. Debbi and I used to love playing it. I may be wrong about Secret being on that tape, by the way. I'll have to dig it out to see what else is on it. We only recorded four songs.

Quote: I think I'm sworn to secrecy, but my favorite song is 'Stealing Rosemary.' It's a great song and it was inspired by something my daughter said one day when we were cooking (vegetarian of course) dinner for Vicki. She pointed out that we had stolen the rosemary from the neighbor's side yard...So I'm partial to that one.

Quote: Not quite gone. I wish (honestly--not just trying to please you guys) that I had co-written Return Post. It started out as a note that Vicki wrote in high school when bored in some class or another. The first verse was later part of a song that we called 'Ain't Good Enough to Say Love,' which we performed as the Fans, and then it became Return Post. It's a great song.
