Stacie Collins: Sometimes Ya Gotta...

Thar she blows!

With ex-Georgia Satellite Dan Baird at the production helm you know this going to be nitty-gritty and dirty club blues.

Nashville born and bred, Stacie Collins is a formidable, long-legged force on stage and plays a mean gob iron.

Here she surrounds herself with some classy musicians, including husband Al, who plays bass with Jason & The Scorchers, and produces a jukebox worth of classy FM rock guaranteed to get any party started.

Imagine a late-night lock-in jam with Aerosmith, The Stones and ZZ Top fronted by a female equivalent of Ronnie Van Zant, or maybe even Shania Twain with balls (we won’t dwell on that image). It’s sassy, sexy and rocks like a bitch.

Pete Makowski joined Sounds music weekly aged 15 as a messenger boy, and was soon reviewing albums. When no-one at the paper wanted to review Deep Purple's Made In Japan in December 1972, Makowski did the honours. He also wrote for Street Life, New Music News, Kerrang!, Soundcheck, Metal Hammer and This Is Rock, and was a press officer for Black SabbathHawkwindMotörhead, the New York Dolls and more.
