I fell in love with her back in the late early 80's - some of her best work IMHO

Check out her "Road Tested" DVD if you want a real treat including several great
guest appearances -Ruth & Charles Brown with Ruth and her singing "Never Make Your Move Too Soon",
Jackson Browne in a guitar duet singing "My Opening Farewell" and more

A great band including Kim Wilson (Fabulous Thunderbirds) playing blues harp

Her appearance in "Lightning in a Bottle" DVD is very good as well

She's AWESOME! Isn't Lucida just as good? Haven't heard her music yet.

I enjoy Lucinda Williams but she has a lot of miles to cover before she even catches up with Bonnie

People love Raitts voice and her writing and covers but her slide work on the guitar is top notch
She learned a lot in her early years from Mississippi Fred McDowell and learned it well

On the Road Tested she does a tribute to him (Kokomo) and it was the highlight IMHO

CMT Crossroads should be airing the concert of Bonnie and Lyle Lovett pretty soon. They've been promoting the heck out of it and I've rediscovered my musical love for the two of them.

My husband loves to watch Bonnie Raitt play guitar. It almost makes me jealous to watch him watch her. grinning smiley

Wow, this I just don't get.

I'm missing something here that people seem to be getting intrinsically.

Personally I'd rather watch Joss Stone.

IMHO, "watch" is the operative word here. She's got the "sound" but to me she's lacking that "why". Maybe it's a life experience thing?

Same holds true for Mimi Carey (although she's starting to figure out she's got the pipes, we know it and we don't need her Star Search renditions anymore to realize it).

Now if Christina Aguleria and Beyonce can stop yodeling and Melissa Etheridge can stop trying to convince us that she's Janis and the hardest screaming woman in show biz, maybe I can listen to their talent without always gritting my teeth.

Just my 2 cents...

I saw a Shakira concert in Brazill a few years ago, I was totally blown away by her talent, especially her guitar playing.

A very pleasant surprise as I was expecting a Aguilera/Beyonce/Paris type of non-talent.

However, I have yet to own any of her music.

I love early Bonnie - Home Plate / Sweet Forgiveness. Newer stuff is a bit commercial.

I think Lucinda is just as good, but completely different.

Everything Joss sings sounds the same- she is good - maybe some living will give her some depth and soul.

I've been a Bonnie Raitt fan for a good many years, starting around high school.

One year after winning a Grammy, somebody asked her something about how life is, and she said "It's easier to get laid"

Gotta love that!

During one performance, there was a trumpet player in her band, and he did some kind of fluttering sound on the trumpet (think Flight of the Bumble Bee) and she commented on his embrasure with something like "I envy the girl who gets those lips".

Salacious. I like that in a woman.

Next to me, that is.




When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

Everybody matters or nobody matters.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

Mister, that's a ten-gallon hat on a twenty-gallon head.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.
