Six Degrees of Wendy & Lisa

So, I was listening to MeShell Ndegeocello's Bitter on the ride to work, and to amuse myself started thinking of all the different little configurations this Pacifico band have played as over the years.

I came up with a decent list in my head and then spent a few minutes Googling to come up with this list:

The object - to find as many bands as possible with three out of the six Pacifico members (Wendy Melvoin, Lisa Coleman, Doyle Bramhall II, Susannah Melvoin, Abe Laboriel Jr. and Mike Elizondo).

I had to make the cut off at three or more members, as two is sort of a no brainer. Wither Lisa goest, there goest Wendy, or something like that.

I came up with . . .

Pacifico (duh)

Bramhall (DBII, W, L, S, AL Jr.)
Girl Bros. (Roxy Lineup, DBII, W, L, S, AL Jr.)
Seal (1994, W, L, S, AL Jr.)
Eric Clapton, (as yet unreleased, DBII, W, S, ME, AL Jr.)

MeShell Ndegeocello (Bitter, DBII, W, L, AL Jr.)
Neil Finn (One Nil, One All, DBII, W, L, S)
Sheryl Crow (C'mon, C'mon, DBII, W, ME)

Wendy & Lisa ('87-'90, W, L, S)
Prince & the Revolution ('85-'87, W, L, S)
Seal (1990, W, L, S)
Eric Clapton & B. B. King (Riding with the King, W, S, DBII)
Lisa Marie Presley (DBII, W, ME)

I could have done a LOT more with going down to 2 not only with W&L stuff but W&DBII, DBII & Abe Laboriel, DBII and Susannah (Roger Waters!!), etc. But that way lies madness.

I also learned that Mike Elizondo co-wrote some of my favorite Eminem singles and the "In Da Club" song - and has a band on the Verve label with Sean Lennon and Miho Hatori of Cibo Matto. Much coolness.

I am so having the jones to watch my Girl Bros. concert before I go, but no time!
