Honestly, I swear this isn't the first time I've seen Rachel pimping her drummer's butt. Perhaps with a surname like "Hooker," he should expect such treatment. Still, I'm not sure what drives this sort of behavior, but all I have to say is, DIVA ALERT.
On a slightly more serious note, Rachel told me she finally found a permanent bass player--and a damn good one. Producer/freakishly talented multi-instrumentalist Barrett Jones (best known for his work with Nirvana and Foo Fighters) has accepted the position. Congrats to everyone involved, but Barrett--watch your ass.
