Five days in the desert: Desert Hot Springs, Joshua Tree, Salton Sea, Pioneertown. I was feeling too bougy to camp; instead, we luxuriated at the Pioneertown Inn, Hicksville Trailer Palace, and, best of all, the Hotel Lautner.
We spent much of our spring break desert trip listening to Suzi Quatro, particularly her great song “48 Crash.” Sad and ironic to find out that she recently had a crash of her own. I’m in the midst of reading her memoirs, reappreciating the ground she broke. I don’t think there would be a Runaways without the Glycerine Queen — certainly, Joan was never the same after hearing Suzi Q.
