Best known for her role in an Officers & a Gentleman, she was an amazing actress and beautiful singer, as well as Ray McKinnon's wife.
If you haven't seen the films Chrystal and Randy & the Mob, add them to your Netflix queue immediately.
She will be missed.

The Lot Lizards (Patterson Hood pre-DBT)

Our good friend Sloan Simpson threw this rare set from Patterson Hood's pre-DBT outfit The Lot Lizards (featuring members of the Possibilites) on, and although this interrupts the Bottle Rockets series I felt it had to be brought to ya'll's attention.
Great piece of musical history here, I believe it was the first Lot Lizards show, featuring early versions of DBT songs.
