Oh my god, Lynne Jackaman??! Wowwww. She used to be in a band called Saint Jude and dated an old college friend of mine for donkeys when both were still living down in London. They came oop norf for a visit once, so a bunch of us went out for breakfast at a local caff where he and a couple of our other mates used to work when we were all still studying, so she won't remember me as we're talking over ten years ago minimum and I only met her the once, but she seemed lovely and yeah, fuck. Whadda pair of lungs! Like a contemporary Janis Joplin or something. Blast/past.
