6 things you didn't know about Alison Mosshart
The half of one of London's most celebrated punk-rock alt bands has a remarkable on-and-off stage style for as long as we can recall.
Vocalist of The Kills and The Dead Weather, Alison Mosshart has a hardcore stage persona & a lifetime of passions and dedication to offer.
Since she has been in the spotlight for years and years, there's a lot of her inspirations and work that you probably didn't know about. So we listed the 6 things you need to know asap.
She got into music at the age of 13.
The first contact the rock star had with music was by listening to her neighbors' boombox. She started to copy the songs and after loving that so much she formed a band with her skating friends at the age of 13.
By the time she was 14, the group was already touring and she's never stopped since.
Treat Me Like Your Mother was co-written by every member of The Dead Weather.
The music video in which bullet holes immortalized Alison's and Jack White's leather jackets came as a debut for the band The Dead Weather.
Mosshart shared with Mojo magazine that when writing the song "everybody just did what they wanted. I wrote most of the lyrics because that's my favorite thing, and everybody wrote different parts to the music, and within an hour we'd have something good enough to record or work on."
She can't live without her R13 Leather Ankle Boots.
These timeless R13 boots must be on the "can't live without" list of a lot of people. The '90s-inspired design has a chunky platform to match the all-leather exterior. Besides praising the comfortable feel that these classics have, the singer is all here for the incredible durability of the shoes which were also used as the leather stars of a Dolce & Gabbana campaign.
"I also haven’t taken these boots off in what seems like a million years. There’s hardly any break-in time — I’d say just one wear, that’s it. And they’re so comfortable. They’re quite expensive, but I promise they will last your whole life," Mosshart told The Strategist.
Or without a Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat.
This hypercar is Alisson's lifetime love. The first time she drove it was in 2011 and after that she rented one every time she went to LA before getting the chance to buy hers.
"I’ve been obsessed with Dodge Challengers since I saw the movie Vanishing Point. It’s too fast for any human being to ever need, and it is literally my single favorite thing that I have," she shared with The Strategist.
Her passion for custom cars was portrayed in her 2020 music video for the single Rise.
This was the first time Alison released music under her own name. And what better way to represent herself than thru a music video filled with custom cars, leather jackets, and gold jewelry.
She has the date of Valentine's Day, 2002, tattooed on her hand.
The date 14-02-02 marked the 1st time she took the stage with Jamie Hince, her cohort in The Kills. From the very start she was convinced that Jamie was the right person to be in her band — and she was right, so right she tattooed the 2002 date on her left hand in black ink.
