After reading the interview with Linda Perry in this article, I think she should have kept her trap shut about not liking her former band 4 Non Blondes, it does no good at this point. I am a huge fan of her voice but she comes across as a stuck up cunt and too cool for school. Maybe fame has gone to her head. On that not, can’t wait to hear the entire album of her new band Deep Dark Robot.
Linda Perry Forms New Band, Admits She Never Liked 4 Non Blondes
Most songwriters would be thrilled to have Linda Perry’s career. Over the past decade the former 4 Non Blondes singer has become one of the most sought-after writers in the industry, penning Pink’s “Get The Party Started” and Christina Aguilera’s “Beautiful” in addition to hits by Alicia Keys, Gwen Stefani and many others. “I’ve just been really bored,” Perry tells Rolling Stone. “If I hear another label tell me that they need a song for the radio I’m going to poke out their eyeballs with a fork. Nobody I work with wants anything out of left field. They just want to keep following the same game plan.”
This frustration led Perry to form Deep Dark Robot, her first band since she quit 4 Non Blondes in 1995. The idea came to her when she began writing intensely personal songs she realized nobody else would want to record. “Basically, I fell in love with a woman and really quick it turned into an emotional tsunami,” Perry says. “She ended up being an incredible muse, even though things didn’t work out between us.”
