    KT Tunstall - nice to see her added! But I saw her about a year ago and I was not feeling her newer music. Still love that album with Suddenly I See on it though...
    Yeah I'm not that big a fan of her new stuff either. It's a bit too 'pop' for me I think. But seeing her alone onstage in a small club with just an acoustic guitar singing 'Throw Me A Rope' was absolutely stunning.

    1. That is my absolute favorite Heart song.
    2. How did women's clothing then look so awesome then and still look awesome now, but the guys in the silky flowing shirts look silly to me now?
    3. Heart is one of the top 10 bands I would take a time machine back to if I could to see live.
    4. Curse you Kwdaley for posting that link - after the song ends there is an endless choice of awesome performances on Midnight Special - I will be up for a few more hours looking at them when I should be in bed since tomorrow is a work day! So far watched the Cars "Just What I Needed" (fave Cars song - and damn wasn't Benjamin Orr a hottie!), and Cheap Trick "Surrender" (when I saw them on the Dream Police tour and they did Surrender, that line when he sings "When I woke up, Mom and Dad were rolling on the couch... rolling numbers rock and rolling got my Kiss records out" they threw a huge armful of actual Kiss vinyl into the audience (when it was all vinyl!). I guess things were more reserved for t.v.?
    5. Oh Mmm Gee: Little Richard just introduced Golden Earring and "Radar Love" by saying "I LOVE golden earrings!!!" TOO FUNNY! And I'm pretty sure the singer and guitar player were high as f'in kites on that one, on something that makes you paranoid because they kept looking at each other as if they they were keeping the other from freaking out... aaaah, 70s rock!

    Ok, back to female singers... I've got more 70s t.v. to watch... :)

    Saw Metric open for the Pumpkins last year, they were great
    have always loved Kim Deals part of the Pixies
    high as a kite was really good, cannot remember who they opened for, Sigur Ros?
    L7 at Lolla were o.k

    would have loved to seen the Sugarcubes, Cocteau Twins
    if I get the chance I would see Mavis Staples, Alabama Shakes, Macy Gray, Bjork

    and I forgot about the Fastbacks opening for PJ, also very good

    Ani DiFranco will always be my favorite female performer.  I've never seen Fiona Apple, Sarah McLachlan or Annie Lennox but if I did I'm sure they'd be up there.
    The Yeah yeah yeahs and Karen O were great.
    Courtney Barnett was good but the venue I saw her in was wayyyy too big for her.  Smaller venue would have been amazing.
    Kim the drummer from Matt&Kim is always amazing when she plays.  She has FUN at shows.

    I saw Beyonce perform and while she was very good she lip synched so it doesn't get held as high as the others I've seen but I really did enjoy her choreography.

  • I got an email today announcing Heart with Brandi C, Sheryl C, and Joan Jett.

    The ladies got together and put together an impressive evening!

    Fair point on a Beyoncé, and Cher was the same more on ‘performance’ than a stunning vocal.
  • the only time i saw joni live was when she opened up for bob dylan. 2 decades ago
    i'm still in love with bonnie raitt and the dixie chicks and the first time i saw cheryl crow play she made a point of playing every instrument during her set. that gal is talented! and joan baez's last tour ever, last year, was brilliant in so many ways.

    yes. she's got 3 albums out. and they are actually good. I have seen her live twice, both times in a dingy hole in the wall bar. She is a rocker, through and through.

    She was dating the RATM drummer so I can see her as being a rocker.

    And don't let her performance at Cornell's tribute sway you....that was terrible, and not at all indicative of her live talent.

    I didn't watch the Cornell tribute.  I was afraid that songs I liked would be ruined, lol.
