Lucinda Williams: Shepherds Bush Empire, London

Tim Cooper, The Independent, 15 November 2006

Originally scheduled to play here in July 2005, Lucinda Williams pulled out with throat problems just days after the bombings of 7 July. But never mind. All is forgiven as soon as she sets foot on the stage to a heroine's welcome, all tight jeans and black leather, looking like the sexiest 53-year-old alive.
