Always great to hear Bonnie speak about her past to her present. Yeah, I would agree Darwin fromNY her music has been my life soundtrack! her music's been with me since around 1974 and thanks to friends I grew up with (and my late brother Steve) gave me such an eclectic mix of styles throughout the 70's, I am forever looking and searching out music. It was nice getting to meet Bonnie years ago, I always look for the next Raitt out there but she has such a mix of feisty, bluesy, brains and personality and has such great taste in music and never forget what she has done to help her peers in the business, and did I mention what a slide guitarist she's become from those first couple lps!, she can be so damn humble at times, I love it when she just lets loose, she a hero to so many(cause she has always let people know her through her singing), people feel they can relate to her and that's the icing on the cake folks, she's been around and around and knows how to throw a party in concert, god bless her many more years of good health and that sexxy guitar slinging strut, rock on Bonnie!
