January 2011 Hella Hawtie Lisa Cornett
Lisa Cornett aka PITBULL HAWTIE!!
1. What are your top three favorite bands and why?
Metallica, Machine Head and SLAYERRRR. Why ?
Metallica and Slayer got me through my teenage years. Metallica were my idols. From seeing them in small clubs in SF and being able to experience that time in the bay area with them was amazing, but more special to see where they are today .
Slayer just to me was the fastest, sickest, most amazing band EVER and still are!!
Machine Head blended some thrash and hardcore and made it their own. The lyrics and vocals with the rage. They also came up with a new different sound I had never heard in guitar playing. Absolutely LOVE that. I could listen to these bands over and over. And me personally, I can't do that with most music.
2. What is the first concert you remember attending?
First concert I was 10 years old. My big brother wanted me to experience a concert. Boy did I ever..It was Day On The Green with Journey, Santana and The Tubes. It was mesmerizing. From the vibe of the crowd, to the music plundering the coliseum, to the crowd with their lighters on in the dark, meanwhile the smell of marijuana EVERYWHERE. Truly unforgettable and paved the way for my love of music. I shortly after that followed up with the Rolling Stones and J. Geils band in San Francisco, with my other older brother. It just snowballed from there. LOL.
3. What are your thoughts on the music scene?
My thoughts on the music scene. Today the music scene of my interest has made a great comeback. There are many punk and metal shows to attend. And promoters are busy booking a lot of shows. I think that's AWESOME.
4. What is the next show or few shows you plan on attending?
NAMM. It will be my first time going to NAMM. I'm going for the experience and spending time with friends. I'm stoked to go and things are more grand and wonderful when your friends are there to share them. I'm also going to Ill Nino Jan 28th in Santa Rosa at The Last Day Saloon.
5. If you could meet anyone and ask a question, who would it be and what would you ask?
My question would be to a man who has passed, Wes Robinson. He was an african american gentleman who promoted shows at Ruthies Inn . My question would be..What inspired him to promote the music he promoted at that time? Click here for more information about Wes Robinson.
