BAND AFFILIATION: Betsy and the ByeGons

1. THE FIRST ALBUM I EVER BOUGHT WAS … Alice Cooper’s “Billion Dollar Babies.” Considering I am really a “retro pop diva,” it may seem odd to some people that it was the first album I ever bought. But, when you think about it, Alice Cooper really is a pop artist. Just a very disturbed one.
2. THE FIRST CONCERT THAT I EVER SAW WAS … Hmmm. Sly & the Family Stone with Earth, Wind and Fire. Madison Square Garden, NYC. Again, a pop concert, no? I remember sneaking down to the floor seats from the cheap upper balcony seats. In those days, no one seemed to care if you did that. In fact, people actually helped my friend and me climb over the railings separating the sections! Probably everyone in the place was stoned (except me, of course).
