Hollie Cook is a Phenomenon. She is unaffected and unflinchingly natural. She sings love songs. Here’s the secret–her father is the coolest Sex Pistol–Paul Cook. Why the coolest ? Well, he’s a drummer for fucks sake! Never a breath of scandal about him. Happily married to a women of color, and this daughter of his is a jewel of integrity.
The evening started with dinner at Rustys Surf Ranch. I think I’ll become a regular there. Dinner was great, and the opening bands wafted reggae vibes to our table before the magnificent reggae chill factor set from Holly. She calls her music “tropical pop,” and the sounds were perfect for a concert on the Santa Monica Pier. The ocean breeze and carnival sounds, the smell of the ocean air, and the waves licking the shore were intoxicating. I am to attend Hollie’s shows forevermore.
