Wanda Jackson and G

Wanda Jackson, aka the Queen of Rockabilly is a legend!  She was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2009 and she’s still going strong.  Her most recent album, “Wanda Jackson” was produced by Jack White of the White Stripes.  The album is fantastic!  She does a badass version of Amy Winehouse’s “You Know I’m No Good.”  She was in town to perform her new album.  I met Wanda Jackson prior to her show and she was really cool!  Thanks Wanda!  Fun facts about Wanda Jackson:  she briefly dated Elvis Presley in 1955 and she’s been married to her manager Wendell Goodman since 1961!  Keep rockin’ Wanda! I’d also like to point out that the insanely genius Jack White arrived about 5 minutes after Wanda Jackson, and instead of obliging me with an autograph (as I was the only person asking in sub-zero weather), he laughed in my face and walked right past me.  Perhaps he should take a lesson from the legends he works with.
