Three young women have one thing in common: Their husbands play in a band. They have their own issues such as suicide, alcoholism, weight gain and depression to deal with, besides their husbands egos. These young women are going places, on their own terms and must overcome  life obstacles. Do you think suicide, weight gain and fear will hold these woman down? No way. Beth must deal with her own inner demons and overprotective mother. She is in love with Jon, her guitar playing boyfriend. She is his muse, his inspiration for his music. He loves her except when she screws up. Stephanie has to learn to let go and shake off her abusive past, destructive parents and be free to love Ian, her bass playing husband. Heather is stuck in a humdrum relationship with Phil the pessimistic drummer and learns that breaking away sometimes is the payoff to success in the world. Catch up on all the hilarius girl talk in High.

Beth lay in bed, naked, drowning in a sea of white damp,
crumpled sheets, cheap vodka and pills. She lay flat on her
stomach, all life drained out of her. Her long blonde hair
was matted to  her face, her tattooed arm was limp. She felt
herself sinking  down into a black hole, she wanted to die.
What use was living anymore? She had forgotten sunrises
and rainbows and love. She felt unloved and ugly, there
was nothing but emptiness now. Death was finally at her
door. She drank one more glass of vodka to wash down the
Oxycontins in her hand. She was Marilyn, tragic and

“Please let me die.” she whispered. But no one was there.

It was time to go. She felt herself floating…..She could
hear an angels voice in her ear, whispering to her. She
could feel the roar of a mighty wind blowing her dingy to a
distant shore…..

It was yet another night in a loud, smoky bar in South
Florida. We band wives were relegated to a booth in the
corner while our mates played on stage. I was married to
Phil “The Preacher,”drummer, Stephanie was married to
Ian “The Stoner,” bass player and Beth was dating Jon
“The Lover,” guitar player. The band was rocking tonight.

Two skanky girls in skintight spandex dresses began
dancing together in front of the band. The guys were
definitely checking out the leg and breast action in front of
them, their lesbo fantasies abounding. Smiles stretched
across their faces as they tried to look cool.

I looked at Stephanie and raised my eyebrows. “See that?”

“Yup”. She sipped her drink, staring at the obscene scene
unfolding before us.

“He would never let me out of the house in that getup. But
he sure digs it on her. Look at the smiles on their faces…” I
said. They all that goopy look on their faces.

“Men, they are strange.” she mused.

“Hypocrites.” I added.

“Chauvinists. The double standard still exists.”…..she
ventured to say.
