RIP Laura Kennedy of Bush Tetras

RIP Laura Kennedy of Bush Tetras

“Picking up an instrument is not the easiest thing in the world for a lot of people. There’s a fear about it. If you’ve already had to battle the ‘being queer’ thing, you can do anything. You’re not accepted anyways, so fuck it.” So Laura Kennedy of the Bush Tetras told me in 2000, when I interviewed her for “Girls + Guitars,” my overview of dykes and punk for Out magazine. RIP Laura. Hep C is a mother-fucker — it’s got a hold on too many stars of that era.
