Following that tragedy, she landed a modeling job and appeared on the cover of Vogue 14 times before she decided to focus on her music (and a bit of acting).
Her story gives the lyrics to the ELO song "Turn to Stone" (released October 1977) new meaning.
"Through all I sit here and I wait I TURN TO STONE I TURN TO STONE
You will return again some day TO MY BLUE WORLD"
I had no idea that one of my favorite bands of all times included a red-headed supermodel with heart of gold.
In my band Xenophilia, I had many fun years performing with the super hot and talented Amy Anne, who I'm sure could have been a model if she was so inclined. I believe I took this photo of Amy Anne myself. I think she'd give Rosie a run for her money, so to speak. ;-)
Getting an early start on my 2012 New Year's Resolutions: After I finish writing and recording my 100 original songs in 2011 -- I resolve to find my supermodel musician girlfriend, get a fantastic band together, book a bunch of shows, entertain people and enjoy many years of fun!
I like what Rosie said about playing music until you are 100 years old. Yes, I'd like that.
Who can say how long any of us have, really, but I believe in this dream. It feels like what I am supposed to do. Do you know the feeling?
This is why I've never married. I'm in love with someone I haven't met yet. I saw her once in a dream. She was at a party on some steps, wearing an over-sized white men's dress shirt. I'll know her when I see her, or when I hear her sing.
The tragedy--and the comedy--is that I'm one of the most stubborn and idealistic people you'll ever meet and if I can't have what I envision, I will just wait and wait. I'll search forever, passing up so many good things. I already have. Wish me luck.
