"I feel like a 14-year-old playing all the songs I loved and grew up to--now it's a reality," exclaimed drummer Sam Maloney about her new all-girl cover band, The Chelsea Girls. "This is my total dream fantasy band come true."

It was only a few months ago when bassist Corey Parks called up Maloney: "Hey, I have an idea. I want to put together an all girl cover band," she said. Maloney, whose played with Motley Crue, Peaches and Hole, was an instant yes and brought in guitarist Allison Robertson from The Donnas. In turn Robertson called Tuesdae. "She's the most smokin' hot girl you will ever land your eyes one, who by the way, has an amazing opera-classical trained voice." Now with a band together, a band name (it references an Andy Warhol flick) and a premise--the greatest anthems from the likes of AC/DC, Judas Priest, Blondie and even some Madonna and SOS--it was time to gig. And there was no better time to go public earlier this month on Grammy weekend. So in the spirit of Dave Navarro's Camp Freddy, they brought in special guests including Carmen Electra who is now the unofficial fifth member as the band's emcee.
