How cool are her pink bass strings? How cool is it that we were close enough to see her pink bass strings?Our introduction to The Donnas came when we watched the special features included on the Detroit Rock City DVD. If you're waiting for me to apologize for or justify liking Detroit Rock City, I sure hope you're comfortable, 'cause that's not going to happen any time soon. Anyway. Here was this cute, young, girl band in KISS face make-up singing 'Strutter', rocking hard, and clearly having a ball. Not one thing wrong with that.
When The Donnas took the stage (For a mere four songs. That's how it goes when you're the warm-up band for not one but two icons.) Tom was on his feet for the whole short set. Most folks were not. MOST folks had not even showed up yet. When the set was over, he was all smiles. "I KNOW she saw me, Tam. SHE saw me and APPRECIATED me."
"She liked you, stud. Ain't no doubt."
They would've been great opening for Joan Jett. But then Tom's head might have exploded.
Next up? Pat Benatar and Blondie. And I'm still in the sixth row, center. Yeah.
