I'll listen to it again one of these days. I do remember her saying that Les would pull up in his Harley and moved into her house and they'd play "loud raucous rock and roll" and that she was only comfortable around guitar men. I took that to mean she was probably sleeping and coking with him for a bit, even though I think he was with Cher at the time.
