I've seen The Knife live a couple years back but just recently discovered that Fever Ray is Karin Dreijer Andersson, one of the sister/brother members of that band. Check out the Knife's song "Heartbeats"... can I NOT post this!!!

Suzi Quatro!

Suzi Quatro's solo performance. Previously she was in The Pleasure Seekers with her sisters (mid to late 1960's), an all female band that inspired many a girl rock band, including my old bands (...also just read that Joan Jett claimed SQ as an early role model). I also remember her as Leather Tuscadero, Pinky's little sister, on Happy Days!
