I walked over to her table and asked if I could join her. She motioned for me to sit down. Lene was charming and I was smitten.
She told me she grew up in Detroit, moving to England as a teen, and was in town visiting family. I had never met such a worldly woman and felt like a hick. Ultimately Lene married Les (her shaved headed guitarist), raised a family and continued to reside in England. Today she has a new band, The Lene Lovich Band, and is touring. Lillie , God bless her, passed away many years ago and the club is under new ownership with a new name. I miss it.
