  • Dennis from Chicagoland Burrows, IlKyle, I think that you are wrong. I am largely a fan of alterna-rock/psychadellic rock, but Lucinda's real. I dont like any country at all, but Lucinda's music is just good music, plain and simple.
  • Justin from Austin, TxWe had an amazing dinner one night in Slidell (LA).
    That was before Katrina. I don't know whether that
    restaurant is there anymore.
