    watching Tal Wilkinfeld on bass made me think about some of the great women in rock: how about an all-star band??

    Going waaay back Julie Driscoll - jazz vocals in rock:

    Vocals and Keys: Tori Amos. Period. An absolutely amazing woman and musician.

    Tal's playing reminds me of Jaco Pastorius.

    I love Lita Ford. I totaled my first car listening to that song - which is somewhat ironic.

    Lita came out of The Runaways along with Joan Jett, who has retained her looks better than the others.

    True, but not being dead certainly enhances her playing.

    One of Lita's best songs was "Gotta Let Go" from the Dancin' On The Edge album (mid 80's)

    She and Joan Jett were heavyweights in the 80's metal scene, but there were several others, too.

    Wendy O Williams (formerly of the Plasmatics) went metal during the 80's and she put out some really good stuff...plus she looked pretty hot when she had hair.

    There's also Janet Gardner of the band Vixen (all female band), Lizzy Hale (Halestorm), Lacey Sturm (Flyleaf) and then there's Lori Lindstruth who's a serious badass with a guitar.

    And the entire band "Iron Maidens" is just...damn...

    If you have never heard it before, watch Tina S at an amazing 16 years old play Through the Fire and Flames by Dragonforce. Hell, I couldn't walk and chew bubble gum at 16 years old, much less play this
