Recognize these two? One of them is known as the lead guitarist and backup up singer for The Who, Pete Townshend and the gal beside him is a local gal with a story to tell. Recently I had the pleasure of interviewing a well-known Mom who quite bluntly ROCKS! You know Darby Mills, former lead singer of the The Headpins. At one time a Loverboy review by Rob Salemin in the Toronto Star stated “Darby Mills makes Mike Reno look like a wimp!” This is a photo of Darby in her former Headpins days with Mike Reno that Darby shared for this interview.
This is her latest musical adventure

Darby has been rockin’ it in the music industry, but she has more to offer. She sat down to talk about her life through the good times and the chaotic times as well. She has a ton of wisdom, lots to share and she is just so well… interesting. She is a strong woman!

Darby shared her photo of her personalized marionette doll that she mentioned in the interview. How many of us can say we have a doll made with our likeness????

As a music fan it was a special day to have the opportunity to chat with this woman who has such a voice in more ways than one To all the Mom’s out there and to those missing their Mother this Mother’s Day weekend, I hope that some of what Darby’s had to say resonates, as it did for me.
