Gwen and others...
The other day, in worship band practice Gwen Stefani's (photo left) name came up. Why? I don't know. One of the challenges with Rock & Roll music, however is finding a good and successful female vocalist that "can rock". Gwen is one of those.
My favorites include Grace Slick (Jefferson Airplane), Aretha Franklin, Heather Nova, Linda Ronstadt, and Tori Amos. There are quite a few others. In fact, I was a fan of Suzie McNeil on last summer's Rock Star INXS.
Now, in the not quite as successful (and not really Rock & Roll profession), in my opinion, you can't beat Deborah Holland and Maddy Prior.
