appeared on an Irish TV channel two days ago and she said that there will
be a tour, but she didn't say anything about the dates.
Edward (Guest): I know you're a huge Sinéad
27, 2000 - Handed by Kai Chai] Yet
another comment on Sinéad, this time from the Canadian singer Chantal
Kreviazuk in a chat session. It's quite hard to be a very influential singer,
fan. Me also. I love her music. Which album would you
say has influenced you most in terms of lyrics, for
example "TLATC," "Gospel Oak?"
"I Do Not Want What I Have Not Got"
and "Gospel Oak" have definitely had such an impact on
me. The thing that I love so much about all of Sinead
O'Connor's work, is that besides showcasing her
supernatural vocal style, she does not allow
meaningless, frivolous, songs to show up on her
albums, even if she did not write it all by herself.
She is very selective and constantly upholds her
integrity. I don't know about her personal life.
The tempestuous Irish chanteuse crossed paths with
27, 2000 - Handed by Kai Chai] Here's
what a member of James has to say on Sinéad's collaboration on the
James relatively recently, as Saul Davies explains.
"She came down to the studio on night to see Eno, He
played her some of the stuff and she was dead cool.
She asked if there was anything we'd like her to sing
on, and we suggested 'Vervacious'. It had previously
just ended with music, quite turbulent, aggressive
music, and its whole end section with her voice
and these weird little pulses was Eno doing his thing.
It's funny because she's got such a beautiful voice
and he made her sound like a robot!"
You recently collaborated with Sinéad OíConnor in
27, 2000 - Handed by Kai Chai] Sinéad
was joined by the rock band Third Eye Blind at a June gig for the Boston
radio station Kiss FM this year. Here's what the lead singer Stephan Jenkins
has to say about the experience:
a live radio performance. How was that?
was at this radio station in Boston doing an a
cappella set and Iím a huge fan of Sinead. I mean,
talk about people getting a bad rap. Itís so weird.
Sinead and Courtney [Love] canít say a thing without
getting slaughtered. I love her album, I Do Not Want
What I Have Not Got and I wanted to cover her song
"The Emperorís New Clothes." And she was there and
I contacted her and said, "Weíll be your backing band.Ē
And she said, "Okay, but can you sing with me? Because
I sort of forgot the words." So we typed up her lyrics and
we introduced her, and people booed her because Boston
is such a Catholic town and theyíre still mad because she
tore up a picture of a the Pope on Saturday Night Live a
few years ago. Iím like, Ďthe Pope can take it!í So she
came out, and we did a song together and I gave her a
hug and told her she made my day. It was cool.
What new bands do you like?
27, 2000 - Handed by Kai Chai] In
a recent interview for dotmusic.com,
one of the two members of the famous 80's band The Bangles lauded Sinéad's

like Travis. I was a real early follower of Travis.

Gray - she's quite formidable.

Best of 2000 poll. Here's the write-up that appears on the site:
Amazon.com's Best of 2000
As a controversial artist who's confounded and even
repelled fans, Sinead O'Connor returns with a pop
triumph. Demonstrating an ability to move fluidly from
raucous rock to ethereal reggae, O'Connor's pop
sensibilities sparkle without sacrificing her hard-won
wisdom and spiritual enlightenment. Faith and Courage
shows us both. --Kevin Cole

Sinead O'Connor's "Faith & Courage". The album has
received praise all over the world and in Australia it
is fast approaching Gold sales on the back of only one
