I can't believe nobody mentioned Nadezhda Tolokonnikova of Pussy Riot!
As long as this has turned into a boy's club masturbatory fantasy, her politics, guts and looks would have me furrowing her field for weeks...
And really, no Courtney Love? I know, she probably did waste Kurt and she's a basket case of substance/sex abuse and her private persona is perhaps
even worse than her most sordid public one, but who doesn't like a hot mess once in a while?
I'm glad Kim Deal made the list a few times... she's very talented, hot and nice and can find good black market substances at 4 in the morning...
too bad she and Black Francis have issues with each other, though.
Some truly great female singers.
Particular favourites of mine that have already been mentioned are Polly Harvey and Janis Joplin.
But I make no apologies for posting another video of my all time favourite; Siouxsie Sioux.
Seen her numerous times, first time back in '81 I think - and she's still going strong.
Nico; not to everyone's liking but a fascinating woman.
No-one could ever say that either Siouxsie or Nico were / are great singers but they have such remarkable depth and complexity.
But Mama Cass was a brilliant singer.
Was going to leave it there, for now, but I've got to mention someone I've met quite a few times, a great person who is as strong and passionate in
her beliefs today as she was 30 odd years ago - Beki Bondage.
