    Me too.

    Last couple of times I saw her someone in the audience asked her to marry them. She responded, "Oh, honey, you don't want that ..."

    Saw her the first time in the mid-'70's at was then Glassboro State College (now Rowan University) on a bill with John Prine and Jim Croce.

    Heard this live remote from Sigma Sound Studios when it was broadcast, and that's when I fell hard for her.

    I still think it is the sexiest song I've ever heard.

    The amazing thing is that she just gets better and better every time I see her, and I've been seeing her since her falling down drunk days in the late '70s. She has never looked or sounded better than she is right now, and she (and her band!) are an absolute force of nature. "Sounds like bacon smells" indeed!

    I heard Bonnie took some guitar lessons from Lowell George; you can hear a little "Feat" in her slide playing...sometimes when a song comes on my Pandora station I'm not sure if it's Lowell or Bonnie at first.
