Some people know her, most people don't. She is, in my opinion, the Crown Princess of Rock. If Black Francis is The Scream, Kim is The Smile. She radiates something very special on stage. See that pic up there from the second Pixies show in Brisbane last year? That ain't no light, it's coming outta Kim. Honest.
She turns 50 today. Happy Birthday, Kim. And of course, I have to acknowledge that Kim has a twin sister Kelley, who, surprise surprise, is also 50. So the musical tribute below is not just for Kim because of her Pixies connection, it's from The Breeders, of which Kelley is an integral part.
