Hard to take a neutral point of view re The First Lady of Rock. However, while standing in line, in the cold and in the rain, to see Barbara and The Stone Coyotes at The Iron Horse in Northampton, MA, someone walked by, saw the crowd and asked, "What sort of music do they play?" "Rock!" "Country!" "Anything and Everything!"
Born in NYC. Folk singer at Cafe Wha? Married to Doug Tibbles who used to write scripts for The Munsters, The Andy Griffith Show and others. He plays drums; his son plays bass. Family group.
