The Fabulous Miss Wendy, who is just on the verge of releasing her debut album, was in town doing a show at the legendary Churchill’s, was joined onstage by Skum lead guitarist John Eaton.
Wendy, the Princess of Punk who hails from West Hollywood and a sage veteran of the Sunset Strip having sold-out shows at venues such as the legendary Whiskey and The Viper Room, is known for her blazing guitar riffs, rock and roll voice and pin up looks is on the verge of hitting it big.
Her album was produced by none other than Kim Fowley, who of course produced such acts as the Runaways and Joan Jett. Fowley recently called Wendy ‘the twenty first century Joan Jett.”
It is no surprise that many on the scene are comparing Wendy to Joan Jett herself. Fowley knows what he is doing, so it is no surprise he is heavily involved in her album. “She is the future of female rock and roll,” said Bobby Newcastle of US Rockstar Magazine.
Before Wendy hit town she called John to see if he could come out and join her on stage for a song and John was of course there. “I knew she was coming to town and was planning on heading out there anyway, but when she called and asked if I would get up there for a song or two, I was stoked,” said John. “She sent me a couple of tracks to learn and I couldn’t wait. She is a star on the rise.”
“I have been lucky enough to share the stage with some amazing guitar players, Slash, Vinny Moore, and now John Eaton. My life is blessed!”
After a rousing first half of a set to a sold out crowd, Wendy brought up John and the place went wild. “We played here back in the day and the fans obviously remember us, but are excited about it happening,” said John. “Wendy and I blew it away.”
Wendy and John jammed on an impeccable version of MC5’s “Kick out the Jams” which had the crowd delirious.
“Great show!” added Wendy.
“What a great night,” John added backstage. “Wendy is super cool and a great rock and roller. Can’t wait to get her on stage with us in LA.”
There have also been discussions of Wendy playing on a bonus track for the album “Lost at the Circus” in which lead bassist Pat Burke says will be an “epic track.”
