Amy Rigby, Bonnie Raitt, Kirsty McColl, Patti Smith, and Kate Pierson. Lulu and Dusty, of course, and (although I wouldn't necessarily say they rock out) Zooey Deschanel and Jill Sobule. Also, you know know who I really like? Remember Dana Fuchs, who opened for Ray here in New York a couple years ago? She had a great Janis Joplin sorta vibe.

How could I forget Aretha Franklin, Tina Turner, Cass Elliot, (Mamma & Pappas), Grace Slick, Pet Clark Kait Pearson of the B-52s, Siouxsie Sioux, Tori Amos, Sarah McLachlan... plus, I also thought Natalie Merchant, originally of Fine Young Cannibals, was an awesome singer.
