“Mentioned in ALL ACCESS MAGAZINE, January 12, 2006 issue in "Backstage with Ricci Rocks" - "The new year of 2006 began with a bang. I spent my New Year's Eve & Day at the Huntington Beach home of Maria Christian, the “Ann Wilson” of the new Heart tribute BAD ANIMALS, which if you haven’t seen them yet, I highly recommend you do--as all the members are indeed, extremely excellent musicians." ”
