Wouldn't be surprised if she had sampled the girls, at least.
But love her.
I don't think so, she's just butch.
Every now and then she falls apart.
Nope. Move along, nothing to see here.
R5 You have your Bonnies mixed up. You're thinking Bonnie Tyler, not Bonnie Raitt.
Bonnie was married to the dude who played Fred on "Roseanne" for a long time, but she seems like she's licked a muff or two in her day.
Wasn't Raitt notorious as a late-in-life Republican? I remember seeing her in "No Nukes around 1981 and then years later I heard she was voting Repug. Anyone know anything about this?
Too bad if it's true. She'd make a dashing dyke, too.
Well, her dad was musical comedy stud/star John Raitt of Carousel and The Pajama Game, if that means anything.
Her political contributions are mostly Democratic, including Dennis Kucinich campaigns. I spot one Republican woman on the list.
Don't know if she'still w/him, but she most recently was with Jackson Brown. She likes the pinga/dick. Some of you guys are delusional about the people you think are gay, esp on the guy front. Pathetic. BTW, I'm gay. And, I'm comfortable enough w/my sexuality that I don't project my sexuality on every crush or person who doesn't fit a convenient stereotype.
Seen her in concert twice. She puts on a great show but I've read here she's a huge bitch behind the scenes. Hope it's not true. Never got a gay vibe from her.
I've also heard she's a huge bitch.
She was married to Michael O'Keefe--a total hottie back in the day with a great ass. I always thought he was too hot to be with her.
One of the costume people on House worked with Michael on an episode he was a guest on, and said Michael has a huge cock.
Apparently he's in the John Corbett club - dudes who have to buy long midrise boxers to cover their junk.
Tell more about John Corbett - know he's a huge guy (isn't he like 6' 5"),
but didn't know he was ' huge'. Tell more.....anyone ?
I sat at a table next to Michael O'Keefe and a group of his buds back in the 80's. It was at some new-wave performance--Lene Lovich or someone similar, I think at the Bottom Line. What I mostly remember was O'Keefe being a drunken asshole, rude and disruptive. I was really surprised and disappointed, as I'd been a big fan ever since The Great Santini.
Quite shocking what people here don't know about Raitt?
*A late-in-life Republican? That one is so bizarre that you have to wonder if the person even knows who Raitt is. Very, very left-wing. One of those leftists who is "upset" about Obama not creating a socialist paradise. Sorry Bonnie. Would you prefer Mittens?
*Lover of Jackson Browne, and former partner of O'Keefe. The former is hung like a moose, and so is the latter. Don't know if Browne is a Buddhist. O'Keefe is, which would make him a lot of fun at a dinner party (*eyes roll*).
*To the credit of Raitt, no one else in popular music has put as much time and money into causes she believes in. Very generous in her committments to causes.
*Yes, I have heard that she can be a real pain in the ass offstage.
I used to hear that she'd go out onstage drunk.
If they do a movie on her life, Lea Thompson should play her. They're almost the spitting image of each other.
I heard that she doesn't always squeeze the toothpaste from the end of the tube.

Aren't you just wonderful and superior in everyway r11! You seem to be quite in love with yourself....now go back to your mirror.
What R25 said
A lot of posters get very nervous when confronted with the possibility that everyone in show business isn't gay.
She's doing two shows in June at the Beacon in NYC, would like to go as she's a rock legend I've never seen.
I always liked Linda Ronstadt's voice better, and her albums were more entertaining than Bonnie's, but at least Bonnie has continued on.
I am SO not a fan of hers. White girls singing the blues just wears me the fuck out. It's showboating and posturing, pure and simple. And boring. She was better on her first few albums, where she leaned more folk than blues.
I was never really a fan, but I really like this cover of "Right Down the Line"
[quote]Wasn't Raitt notorious as a late-in-life Republican?
She is from a very long line of Quakers so I don't see how she could be a late in life Republican at all.
She is no Republican. Go to Wiki - her political activism is for the left. And the latest video of Right Down the Line features same sex couples.
She went to Radcliffe for a semester, for those pro and anti-Harvard.
I just got to meet Miss Raitt this past summer, she is straight and sober and talented as ever. As far as her off stage that night I was back stage and waited patiently to meet her. She gracefully met each and every person in the room around 15 or so and took time to talk to them and take photos including myself. She is a left wing crusader for NO NUKES alongside Jackson Browne and Stephen Stills presently touring for the cause and she has never sung a song that did not sound outstanding. A true American Icon. Those who degrade her are clueless and should sit down and listen to every one of her albums they are all GREAT.!!!
She learned much of her slide guitar style from Lowell George need I say more!!!
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
