10 Weird and Wonderful Women Musicians

Or any of the other women on this list, all musicians with talent, originality, charisma and intelligence––not to mention a wicked sartorial style!

That's just who they are. 10. Bands & Projects: X Ray Spex Time and Place:1970s London Genres: Punk Quote: If anybody tried to make me [a sex symbol] I'd shave my head tomorrow.

13 Business Books That Will Blow Your Mind Having never taken a business class in college I find that I read and listen to a lot of business books to round out my education. The books usually aren't "How to Manage Your Cash Flow" but rather get me to rethink the way I run my business, which--despite no business classes or diploma--continues to be in business 13 plus years after I started it. In that time, here are 13 of the books that had the biggest impact on how I run my business (in no particular order): 50 Greatest Guitar Solos Jimmy Page. Jack White. Jimi Hendrix: some of the music world's greatest ever axe-shredders (and that's only the Js).
