Countdown: Women Who Rock - #11, Alison Mosshart

#11 - Alison Mosshart

Taking the final spot before the (I'm sure) much anticipated top 10, it's Alison Mosshart! She's been everywhere over the last couple of years with her own work as part of rock duo The Kills, featuring on songs with Placebo, Arctic Monkeys, Primal Scream and The Last Shadow Puppets and of course as the female lead in Jack White's supergroup The Dead Weather.

Alison is slowly creeping into the mainstream consciousness and new albums from The Dead Weather and The Kills should only catapult her to rock superstar levels of fame. Not just a pretty face, Mosshart is a talented songwriter in her own right, even co-writing 8 tracks on The Dead Weather's debut Horehound.

Her voice is versatile, it can be quite sweet or extremely harsh and fits in nicely with different genres. If you're a country fan, check out the fantastic cover The Kills did of Patsy Cline's 'Crazy.' Outstanding.
