Sure, the raven-haired Mosshart looks appropriately tough, but a second persona appears as she peels off the rock-star veneer. If I were in a band in sixth grade I would have called it The Banana Republic Club. I stayed with them, and Jamie lived upstairs with this unpredictably difficult kid called Simon, who once got wasted on whiskey and started waving a big bread knife at me and talking nonsense.
The tour for The Kills’ third album, (Domino), ended only days earlier, and she has just gotten off a flight from Japan. I expressed an interest to Jamie in working with him.
Before the worst guy ever and I called it quits, we drove from Philly to Brooklyn to see the Kills play a sold-out show at the Music Hall of Williamsburg.
To be honest, so much about that weekend was a blur, but still I vividly remember how watching Mosshart scream into a telephone while playing guitar made me feel so alive and whole.
Our relationship was a nightmare and thankfully short lived.
Despite his horridness and how weird things were between us, there is one thing about dating him that I am eternally grateful for: the Kills.
She dragooned her brother, Matthew, a talented chef, into catering this unruly affair, let us rig up her beloved Dodge Challenger, the "Black Shark," and drove us around town.
I hung on every word that she sang, completely enamored of her tone on "Fried My Little Brains" and her eternally cool-as-fuck stage presence.
The Kills‘ frontwoman Alison Mosshart has issued a statement regarding tabloid rumours that she and Jack White recently engaged in a fist fight while drinking in a New York bar.
According to Mosshart, she and The White Stripes man, with whom she’s collaborating in the new band The Dead Weather, did no such thing.
Etched in black ink on the heel of Alison Mosshart’s left hand is a tattoo: “14-2-02”—Valentine’s Day, 2002. MOSSHART: I don’t know if that kind of attention helps or hinders. Our bus driver was supposed to meet us in Texas a few days later. BLASBERG: I guess YSL is a little more classy than beer, but probably not as much money. Derek Blasberg is a Missouri-bred, New York–based fashion journalist and writer.
It’s a very important date for the 30-year-old singer, marking the first time she took the stage with Jamie Hince, her cohort in The Kills. Regarding Kate, you could look at the sales for The Babyshambles [Moss dated Pete Doherty, who is the band’s lead singer and guitarist] and say having Kate attached to your band—in the media, anyway—doesn’t necessarily help. It was a Sunday when he should have arrived, but he didn’t. He is one of V magazine’s senior editors and is a contributing editor at and several international editions of Vogue. With a smoke at lips, black on her nails, eye-covering bangs and a rock and roll style that cannot be shaken she has become such an inspiration to all and many.
