Rest In Peace Bambi Lake

 Rest In Peace #BambiLake 

who I first met when she sang at the Paradise Lounge in San Francisco in the 90s - we used to talk about her amazing life playing shows in Berlin where she met #DavidBowie (she would call him Booey) I’ll never forget her cover of Wild is the Wind standing onstage in a floor length sequin dress. She often spoke of her fondness for her friend fellow singer @gingercoyoteofficial and how much she loved @punkglobe for documenting the music scene - lots of #punkrock guys had crushes on Bambi - she was witty and didn’t suffer fools gladly and how wonderful is @mxviv ‘s cover of Bambi’s tenderloin ballad the Golden Age of Hustlers - who could forget the night Bambi tried to storm the White Trash Debutantes’ stage and sing? Never a dull moment to be sure. I snapped this Polaroid in 1994 when Bambi was working on her autobiography - Ginger was the first to let us know that Bambi was ill and thank you for letting me say goodbye - I know she cherished her long dear friendship with her and others like musician Baba drummer from #thezeros and Gail the singer from #PennsylvaniaMahoney and @gerefennelly who accompanied her on piano 🎹
