    To. Precious. Metal. First off u are one of the best performers of all time. I don’t mean to give you a sob story but I have COPD and drs have given me 2 yrs to live. Me and my wife are very poor and I don’t have hardly anything to leave our kids wen I die. I am wondering if i could get some autographed pictures of you so I would have something good to leave our kids. Thank you. Kevin. Parker. 337. P. R. 52036. Pittsburg. Tex. 75686. U. S. A. I’m not making this up just to get pictures. It’s the truth

    I first heard “This Girl” after I bought the LP in 86 at a local record shop and I was hooked!! Leslie’s voice rocked me!! I met her and Mara in 1990 on their tour. They talked to the fans for 1 hour after the show. I was impressed by this. I STILL listen to their music to this day!! I wish they could reunite with Mara and have the complete original band. Cool that Susette is playing with them again! I sent for the stuff in the fan club in 1987 and got a signed card from Mara and Alex. I still have this. I am a HUGE fan!! Keep Rocking Ladies!! Never too old to rock!!

    Hello !

    I knew you because of FBE. Great songs ! Sweet Sweet and Right Here, Right Now are my fav songs (for the moment).

    Ladies in metal are the best !
    You Rock \m/ !

    Looking forward to seeing you gals play. Hopefully I’ll get a ticket and a way there. Always a great to see you girls play.

    Only knew of the one album but loved it. “right here right now”
    Came out to see you at a rock house (name slips mind) in San Diego, ’85 or ’86. I bought an advance sell ticket at a record store in ElCajon where I meet a couple of the ladies; sadly neither fell in love with me on the spot. When I presented the ticket at the door it baffled the kid taking tickets because no one had seen any advance sell tickets and didn’t know about them.
    Moved away from SD and kind of fell away from music purchasing. Don’t think I owned a record player since.
    From the comments above it sounds like you regrouped for a cause at some point. Wish I could have been there.
    Hope that all worked out as best it could.
    On a recent downsizing and purging of less used stuff I sold off my vinyl but I went through and kept some I didn’t want to part with and if my memory serves me, I kept the Precious Metal figuring it might not be replaceable vinyl or otherwise.
    Peace and Rock and Roll ladies

      HI Thomas!

      How cool of you to write to us. It’s awesome you kept our vinyl! I have 2 left in my small stash.
      Hope to see you in December at the Whiskey… that would be a blast!

    I’m listened to thus band in the early 90’s, thought they had a great sound never understood why they didn’t get more airplay. Had the or early albums.

    I miss your music. Loved every Precious Metal show that played here in Cleveland! A small reunion tour would be amazing!
