Eddie Van Halen Tribute & Women In Rock Deep Dive

Lyrically riffing to enlightenment
Christina and Michelle share a bond and mentality that cannot be described, it is a unique pleasure to join them every week to eavesdrop on their brilliant, witty and often poetic musings on a wide range of topics - from a united adoration for the work of Bret Easton Elis and his language to life improving mantras of self love these two dynamic souls never cease to make me smile and forget the trivial hang ups of life. Literature, music, cinematography, health, life on the road... the collective experiences of Christina and Michelle are shared openly, honestly and without ego. Party on Wayne!
