Wendy & Lisa

Barney Hoskyns, Vogue, 1987

WENDY Melvoin and Lisa Coleman go back a long way. Years before they were members of Prince's group, The Revolution, they were growing up as rock'n'roll brats in Los Angeles, their fathers both session musicians in that city of session musicians. The girls even played together as children in a band that recorded an album for A&M.
