Hey Duane + everyone listening!

i liked her in Never Too Young To Die where she co starred with a hermaphrodite Gene Simmons. Beautiful woman...Vanity not Gene
Avatar 12:17pm Duane:

hi sheila! Nice to see you last night!!! thanx 4 listening!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:21pm Ken From Hyde Park:

RIP Vanity. Good afternoon, train riders!

Woah, I can't help but dance. At work on my computer and I'm just jiving and shaking. I can't stop. I hope nobody walks by.
Avatar 12:27pm fekner:

ridin' the G train with Duane today- nice tribute playlist
Avatar 12:28pm djsheilab:

Great seeing you too @Duane! Been reading up on Vanity 6 and there are so many half hilarious/ half disturbing stories—Prince wanted to call them the Hookers, he thought Vanity should originally be named Vagina, and 6 is the number of the group's breast count. Ha!
Avatar 12:28pm Linda Lee:

~ the voice of a walking dead woman possessed by demons, according to the lady herself. ~
Avatar 12:30pm Linda Lee:

her conversations with Joan Rivers after she was born again are disturbing indeed. ~
Avatar 12:31pm Duane:

Linda Lee: Yeah, that sounds about right:)
SHeilab: My fave song by them is a tune called "Vibrator"..it's hilarious...and slightly disturbing. Prince has a cameo in the tune as a female sex shop clerk..:)
  12:33pm robyn:

Hi everyone.. RIP Vanity, bad-ass lady, you
Avatar 12:33pm djsheilab:

@Duane will you be playing it?
Avatar 12:33pm Linda Lee:

~ i think it's all a bit disturbing really ~ knowing she was really such a mess.
Avatar 12:35pm Linda Lee:

she finally destroyed everything associated with Vanity she could get her hands on ~ records, videos, demos, everything. in a flaming pile. ~
Avatar 12:36pm Duane:

Linda Lee; She dated Nikki Sixx after she broke up with Prince for 4 years (!). Sixx put out a book called the "Heroin Diaries" which documented the crazy Heroin addiction years...it's pretty crazy read!!
  12:36pm john b:

woah, seriously linda? that's so interesting
Avatar 12:37pm djsheilab:

During my days as an A&R scout, I was asked to put together a girl group in the style of Vanity 6/ Mary Jane Girls. "Strippers that sing!" was the brief. I said okay, left the meeting, and was then like, "Hmmm...perhaps this is not what I should be doing with my A&R career. Nor what I should be doing to young girls!" I never called the label back.
  12:37pm john b:

do you have a link or something to her talking about demons?
Avatar 12:37pm Duane:

sheilab: It's a lil too "Blue" for this hour:)
Avatar 12:37pm Linda Lee:

@johnb ~ yes ~ absolutely true. it's all on video record ~ as well as her evangelizing later. ~ look up Vanity & Joan Rivers
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:38pm Grok-o-matic:

oh that's filthy
Avatar 12:39pm Linda Lee:

honestly you get the sense that if the born again woman could have lobotomized herself to get rid of her past, she would have. it was incredibly hateful to her.
Avatar 12:39pm Howard F:

Wow, had no idea Vanity passed. Really sad!
Avatar 12:40pm Linda Lee:

~ she had very serious kidney disease throughout her life. finally gone to the Lord ~
Avatar 12:41pm Linda Lee:

her friend Sheila E is born again also. ~
Avatar 12:42pm Duane:

Linda Lee; She stayed pretty tight with Sheila E, Morris Day & Jesse Johnson throughout her life..and apparently she and Prince used to have Prayer sessions together sporadically throughout the last few years
Avatar 12:43pm Linda Lee:

~ quite an amazing group of people ~
Avatar 12:44pm kumar:

Duane Train -> School Bus ... this time on the accuplaylist :)
Avatar 12:45pm Linda Lee:

for john b ~ www.youtube.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:45pm Grok-o-matic:

Yeah, definitely on the Duane Train
Avatar 12:45pm Duane:

LL: Yeah it's interesting because they were like a gang/art collective and the were all pretty much kids. Vanity was around 21-23. Sheila E around the same age.. and Prince was about 20..and they all ended up kind born again when it's all said and done.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:46pm JtotheK:

hi everybody.
Avatar 12:47pm Linda Lee:

~ gotta be a reason for that ~
  12:49pm robyn:

love the show so far duane! And the discussion, too
Avatar 12:50pm Linda Lee:

~ frankly i think that kind of phenomenal success when you're very young is just very messy. ~
Avatar 12:51pm djsheilab:

It looks like Apollonia was spared a similar fate.
Avatar 12:52pm djsheilab:

@Linda Lee Completely. Especially that type of porn star-ish fame. SO dark.
Avatar 12:52pm Linda Lee:

hey SheilaB! ~ frankly i don't think she was in the group the same way ~ Vanity was supposed to do Purple Rain with Prince, but there was a disagreement & she backed out at the last minute ~ Appollonia was her stand in.
Avatar 12:53pm Linda Lee:

yes ~ dark indeed. ~ the industry is fairly brutal too.
Avatar 12:53pm Duane:

LL; Absolutely! ANd for young African-American's at the time period, it was completely uncharted territory for everyone..they were young, weird and on a journey of self-discovery..not always pretty!
Avatar 12:54pm kumar:

ohmygod whoa, just fell down a rabbit hole watching that Joan Rivers interview. Heavy. I'm back on the train now :)
Avatar 12:55pm Linda Lee:

~ it's got to take absolutely everything you've got, all of your reserves & spirit, to stay sane in it ~ & it doesn't always work out.
Avatar 12:56pm Linda Lee:

@kumar ~ yes, pretty heavy. ~
  12:57pm robyn:

This is making me really want to read a book about prince's circle ...sadly the world has not yet caught up with their radical vision
Avatar 12:57pm kumar:

When she talks about getting abused as a child it gets real. Joan Rivers tries to interject: "who abused you?" ~ ahhhhhhh
Avatar 12:58pm djsheilab:

@Robyn Is there such a book? I'm curious too!
Avatar 12:58pm Linda Lee:

well Joan Rivers has all the subtlety of a blind bull ~
Avatar 12:59pm Linda Lee:

but as it turns out both she & Sheila E were abused as children. ~ & then they walk into a fairly abusive business ~ my god ~ say what?
  1:01pm robyn:

@djsheilab I dunno, I would love to hear any suggestions. I am thinking of the heaps of bowie hagiography out there, prince + co deserve their own shelf, too
Avatar 1:02pm Duane:

Robyn: this is a good one www.amazon.com...
Avatar 1:05pm Linda Lee:

~ word from the women's side would be very welcome ~
Avatar 1:06pm Duane:

RObyn: This is a interview w/ Prince circa '86 on the Electrifyin Mojo's radio show and it's great because he reveals a lot about the inner workings of their scene...LL: That book has a lot of extensive interviews with Wendy & Lisa, the other girls in V6..it's pretty cool
  1:07pm robyn:

Awesome, thanks duane! @linda lee yes most def
Avatar 1:07pm Linda Lee:

~ glad to hear that ~
Avatar 1:09pm Linda Lee:

loving the music Duane thank you!
Avatar 1:09pm Duane:

LL: Very intresting interview that Wendy & Lisa did for Out year ago is pretty revealing too! www.out.com...
Avatar 1:09pm Linda Lee:

ah ~~ good
Avatar 1:12pm Duane:

thanks LL: E. Mojo interview w/ Prince www.youtube.com...
  1:13pm john b:

thanks, linda!
Avatar 1:13pm MenfussMike:

watching that Joan Rivers vid....she was an absolutely stunningly beautiful woman. Vanity not Joan.
  1:15pm robyn:

Thx duane... Sounds like a hothouse environment (of course!).. I didn't know Wendy and Lisa were a couple
Avatar 1:21pm Linda Lee:

~ i liked the piece in Out ~ thanks for that. they seem very sane.
Avatar 1:23pm Spaniel:

hey everyone! Really enjoying this set and this track (trip your mind)
  1:26pm Neanderthal Head:

This is hot.
Avatar 1:27pm Linda Lee:

~ will check out the Mojo talk in a bit ~ thanks for the link Duane! ~ funny side note: a friend of mine who suffers a form of dwarfism went to high school with Prince ~ & noticed him because he was the only person around close to her size :-)
Avatar 1:28pm fekner:

drum machines...the stuff that dreams and nightmares are made of
Avatar 1:29pm fekner:

great set duane~!
Avatar 1:29pm Linda Lee:

@fekner ~ i like it ambient wise ~
Avatar 1:31pm kumar:

I love the sound of a live played electronic kit.
Avatar 1:32pm fekner:

Linda Lee, great insight & comments today
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:33pm Carmichael:

I have always loved the synthetic handclaps. Hiya Duane and passengers.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:34pm Goyim in the AM:

This is the set I needed today, although I did not know it until it started.
  1:35pm robyn:

Yes Linda lee these are great stories.. Duane the out interview is also amazing.. fcking nuts the shit they had to deal with
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:37pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Or oranges, as Trump's case may be
  1:56pm robyn:

@spaniel a friend of mine was marveling at how we've gotten to the point where you feel bad for jeb. Jeb!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:01pm Carmichael:

Oh man, I had this War album (all of 'em, actually) as a youth.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:02pm Carmichael:

@robyn: yes, a "moderate" Republican has no place in that friggin' zoo. Just look at Kasich ...
Avatar 2:07pm northguineahills:

The Seefeel side project Scala did a bass-housey cover of Heart of Glass that pretty amazing, and that was in '99.
  2:14pm Neanderthal Head:

  2:14pm robyn:

@carmichael or anyone that can be civil for more than 2 seconds.
Avatar 2:15pm Spaniel:

This is nice... @robyn, I know crazy to think of another Bush as a lesser evil
Avatar 2:19pm Linda Lee:

~ do believe Jeb will be the last man standing ~ watch & see.
Avatar 2:20pm Linda Lee:

really lovin this set! ~
  2:22pm Neanderthal Head:

Sick beats.
Avatar 2:31pm northguineahills:

@Ken: I just rewatched the first two Police Academies this last weekend as I hadn't watched them since junior high.....
Avatar 2:35pm kumar:

oh man, Express Yourself is such a Duane track. When are you next coming through Chicago, man?!
Avatar 2:37pm Duane:

kumar: HAHA..SO it is! I think there's talk of me coming through in April!
Avatar 2:40pm kumar:

Nice!!! Let me know
