(playing under the name "dottie danger")...though she never got to play with them live because she caught "the kissing disease"...she then went on to start the go-gos (and they were originally called the misfits...could you picture her singing "mommy?...can i go out and KILL TONIGHT"...adorable....)

I dig the blog.

Now I finally can listen to Aglio de Olio again. Lost my disc in a break-up.

There are some good covers on this comp. Better than U2 and Kiss covering The Ramones or that crap Darby & the Germs biopic from last year. Davidkaos FEB2609
