I'm not familiar with Bekka's music outside of FM. Could you recommend something for me to listen to?

Yup. I was kicked out of there because he was claiming as fact that Thousand Days, Rooms On Fire and a few other songs were about Joe Walsh when Stevie has stated otherwise. I simply pointed that out and boom, banned

Beware the Chiffon! There are certain degrees as you climb the stairs into the fog where the ghosts live.

You will have seven wonders and turn to gold dust for even ventured there.

The only other recordings I have of her is the CD she did with Billy Burnette, in the late 90s. These days (to the best of my knowledge), she mainly makes her living as a backup singer, for the likes of Vince Gill, John Oates, etc... A couple years ago, she had a band together that played every Wednesday in Nashville, at B.B. Kings club. I went and saw them a couple of times, and was blown away! Her range is amazing! It's really a shame that that lineup of FM wasn't given more of a chance to shine.

Edit- she also appeared as a guest at Dave Mason's concert in Nashville, this past summer.

Thanks. It's a pity that she hasn't, it seems, had the material to showcase her performing talent. (I'm really not a fan of "Time", sorry everyone.)

I'm listening to Bekka Bramlett's 2009 album "I Got News For You" on Spotify now. I'll see what I think.

EDIT: Bekka performs very well on the album. The production, arrangements, and songwriting are very professional and polished, but there is nothing on the album that really stands out. It's all very derivative. In my opinion it backs up my surmise that she hasn't had the material to match her ability to perform.

And I wasn't talking about interviews Lindsey gave about Stevie. I was responding to a comment in a post made about Stevie's interviews, not his.

And I don't care if you feel defensive or not. I feel that if you think the board is too harsh on Stevie, there are many boards that are not where you would feel more comfortable. As soon as I get my tax refund, I will be starting a new bulletin board myself, because I don't like the bulletin boards that are out there about my favorite actor. He's been around a long time and I will be creating a forum 15 years too late, but I'm going to do it anyway, because I'm frustrated with the attitudes on other forums and I left this board in 2003, because I didn't like its tone. No board is for everyone.

Michele loves Christine's wit. So I thought that might make her laugh.
