📹: Wendy & Lisa, et al - Orbison Tribute

Wendy & Lisa posted a link to this video. It was a Roy Orbison Tribute - Benefit For The Homeless, featuring Tiny Weymouth, Wendy, Lisa, former W&L drummer Carla Azar, kd lang, Bonnie Raitt, and more.

This experience will cover courtship, sex, commitment, fetishes, loneliness, vindication, love, and hate.

Wendy is in the white suit on Bonnie Raitt's right - she has longer hair, and Lisa is on keyboards to the far right of the stage. The camera cuts to a quick closeup of her in the middle of the song. At the end, as they walk off the stage Wendy and Lisa are the last ones in the line.

Great performance!!

Yep, they're all there. W&L wouldn't post a link saying they were in it, and weren't, obviously. The camera work is shitty at best on the video, but you can see all the folks in it.

I'm just conversin', not calling you out or anything. kd lang seems so out of sight out of mine lately. It's such a good time for her to make a huge comeback in the public-mainstream sense. If audiences love music by beautiful voices like Adele, kd lang certainly has a new audience waiting for her.

Her voice is just gorgeous. She sings on Wendy & Lisa's Mother Of Pearl. Back then it was rumored that she had a mad crush on Wendy - Constant Craving was said to be about Wendy smile

I'm a gay man, and even I had a crush on Wendy back in the day.

Yes, when she was interviewed about the song and album she said it was inspired by someone she wanted to be with but couldn't because the girl was in a committed relationship. There are pics online of KD and Wendy attending Madonna's film premiere party back in 92/93 time period.

Have you all heard KD Lang sing Hallelulah?? It is beyond...I think it is the best rendition.

I know we are off topic, had to say it.

Really love Roy Orbison too.

HA!! Yes, I think all genders and sexualities had a major crush on Wendy!! She stated in the 2009 Out interview that straight girls would tell her she and Lisa were the only lesbians they would have f**cked biggrin

They were/are lovely badasses smile

No, they went to Madonna's Truth Or Dare (I think that was the name)- the docu-film covering her concert tour and some personal stuff. It was quite the media spectacle back then because it was very sexually explicit, of course smile

It's Wendy. She and Susannah looked very similar during this time period. Both had long wavy hair. Wendy was dressing in more feminine outfits - especially on stage. She and Lisa have stated they felt pressured by their record label to present more of a feminine or "bombshell" image - I guess to appeal more to the mainstream pop audience.

Susannah is in the video for the song Sideshow where she and Wendy are identically dressed and Wendy is looking in a mirror at her reflection but it's Susannah looking back. Almost impossible to tell them apart in that video smile

They really did look nearly identical back then. I thought it was Susannah at first.

Definitely Wendy. But it's interesting they were photographed together. Susannah would later co-write Madonna's "Candy Perfume Girl" for Ray of Light (1998).

This experience will cover courtship, sex, commitment, fetishes, loneliness, vindication, love, and hate.

Yes, I read that she actually wrote the full song for a potential solo album she was planning. Madonna liked the song, changed the lyrics slightly, and gave Susannah only partial writing credit confused A David and Goliath situation I guess.

That's Susannah with John Cusack. Were they lovers or friends?
