    I have mixed feelings about her… I love the band, and no doubt she’s very talented, but I find her a little abrasive at times. She looks fantastic in that shoot though, fabulous hair.

    Oh, I remember this.

    Speaking of Miss Ditto… I’m really happy that I got to go see them preform last time they were in Little Rock. Damn, was Vino’s ever packed that night!
