Q: Venus, I'm a big fan, and I read that you take guitar lessons. What songs can you play so far? Kelly

A: Kelly, I started playing the guitar when I was about fifteen. I stopped playing when I went on tour full time back in '97. I have started up again this year and I am real rusty. So far I am working on Billy Idols White Wedding, A song called cryptonite, Complicated and ska8ter boi by Avril and Heart of Gold. Most of all I write my own stuff using the stuff I have learned from other songs. I am hoping to be playing some 311 real soon.

Vee once again is impressive...Those girls really seem to have all the talents...I'm sure in few years, we will hear Serena sing jazzy music like a Queen, on Venus's composition :p

I guess Venus is all set to retire from tennis ! :rolleyes: With her ranking falling to new lows with each passing day i guess these 'outside interests' will keep her in good stead once she decides to 'hang up her boots'

Go Venus :tape: !!

Playing tennis?! Hahaha...she is competing, but hasnīt reached a slam final, has won only ONE title since ī02 Oz open, hasnīt been in a slam final in YEARS! Hasnīt beaten a top 5 player in years, well Lindsay by retirement,.....canīt win three-setters, etc. You get the drift.

Make Your Own Kind Of Music
Mama Cass Elliot
(Mann/Weil)

Nobody can tell ya
There's only one song worth singing
They may try and sell ya
Cause it hangs them up
To see someone like you

You gotta make your own kind of music
Sing your own special song
Make your own kind music
Even if nobody else sings along

It can't be nowhere
The loneliest kind of lonely
It may be
Just to do your thing is the hardest things to do

You gotta make your own kind of music
Sing your own special song
Make your own kind music
Even if nobody else sings along

And if you will not take my hand
Then I must be going, I'll understand

You gotta make your own kind of music
Sing your own special song
Make your own kind music
Even if nobody else sings along

You gotta make your own kind of music
Sing your own special song
Make your own kind music
Even if nobody else sings along

You gotta make your own kind of music
Sing your own special song
Make your own kind music
Even if nobody else sings along

No no no no
Even if nobody else sings along
If nobody else sings along

311 had that song back in the day 'All Mixed Up' I loved that song! :)

This was like around the ska explosion... Sublime, No Doubt and Smash Mouth all came out, as in became MAINSTREAM, at the same time. I gotta get some of their stuff but I do have 'All Mixed Up'.
