Jamie hince and alison mosshart dating

Hermione Eyre meets The Kills Early morning and The Kills are draped across their chairs like recently dis-interred corpses, cringing at the daylight. She’s 33, comes from Florida, and gives off shy, angry vibes, frequently messing up her hair so it hides her face. She flinches when four plates of fruit are put down on a table next to her.

‘I can only cope with it when it’s bitterly, bitterly cold.’ Jamie Hince laughs at her. He used to carry around a parasol because he said that a suntan was incompatible with rock’n’roll.’ ‘The sun,’ says Alison sententiously, dragging on a cigarette, ‘gives you cancer.’Like all the best rock bands, The Kills have a touch of Spinal Tap about them.

People say that the performances are kind of like watching a private conversation—and we haven’t played a show in a while. Do you think it was harder for Jamie since, at the same time, he’s gained this notoriety for something besides music? Sometimes that gets more attention than the actual music; the progression from album to album. “The Kills are too cool.” There’s been an on-and-off relationship with the music press that loves us and then hates us then loves us again.

Was he cool with the Dead Weather or was he a little jealous? [Jack Lawrence], Dean [Fertita], Jack, and I didn’t sit down decide to be in a band together or do two records or tour the world. Do you worry that the culture of The Kills is sometimes seen as more important than the music.

I think he was just surprised that it went on and became a real thing, as we all were. It was just one of those things where, if something’s working like that, you have to do it. Obviously none of us needed a second job—or a fifth job, in Jack’s case.

For me it’s seemed quick because I’ve been dealing with quite a few things, but you get messages from fans saying, ‘When the hell is the next record?His bandmate in The Kills, Alison Mosshart, is seen decked out as a scruffy Mossy lookalike with bleached blonde hair in the promo to Doing It To Death.Alison puffs on a cigarette as she mimics the supermodel while Jamie sits in an open coffin.’”Kate, 42, famously never liked Alison and Jamie admitted his relationship with his bandmate was stretched to breaking point when he married in 2011.At one point the alleged ex-lovers were living on opposite sides of the world, with Hince based in London and 37-year-old Alison in Nashville, Tennessee.
