“In a bizarre way you have to admire Bebe Buell. She’s certainly followed her own path through life which has included stints as a model, a Playboy centerfold, a slew of high profile relationships with rock stars including David Bowie, Barry Cowsill, Elvis Costello, Mick Jagger, Iggy Pop, Todd Rungren, John Taylor, and Steven Tyler (father of her daughter Live Tyler), a talent manager, and a musician.
Hangin’ with rock stars seemingly convinced Buell she had what it took to be a musician herself. Working separately with Rick Derringer and The Cars, she made her recording debut with the 1981 four track EP “Covers Girl”. The two tracks on side ‘A’ were produced by Rick Derringer, while the flip side found Buell working with Ric Ocasek and the rest of The Cars. All four tracks reflected a distinctive new wave orientation.”
Bebe was a fine young girl with a burning desire for rock’n’roll. This is Rhino rec. EP with four cool & sexy covers of Bacharach, Tom Petty, The Nightcrawlers and especially of Iggy’s “Funtime”. Comes with Playboy pics inside! Rated R 😉
OH YEAH !
