I was sitting up last night, at a stupid time when I should have been snoozing, and flicking through the channels when I came across Later with Jools. I have this funny love/hate feeling about LWJ... I always watch it when I see its on, and there is always at least 2 amazing bands on it, but then theres always at least 1 band that bores me batshit.... So anyway, I flicked it on, hopeful yet cautious....
"Tonight we have Sonny Robinson with Eric Clapton, The Dead Weather, ...... " I zoned out there and the happy dancing commenced. You see Lovers, Clapo is one of my favourite musicians (one of my fav songs since I was a wee one is Layla ) so I was happy about him sitting in with Motown's Sonny. And um... The Dead Weather! When I grow up I wanna be Alison Mosshart (she of The Kills & Discount). Mega girlcrush! Turns out Yoko Ono was on as well.... errmmm so there's the batshit.
Because I love you, I thought I'd share my girlcrush's performance with you. Her voice is so perfectly rock'n'roll. Yes, that is Jack White on drums - unpopular opinion time: the guy is super talented, but just not quite my cup of tea.
And on that note, I'll catch you later :)
Smoochies to you all,
