I am no TLC fan, and I doubt many of us here are, but, just out of idle curiousity, that member that was killed this last week, Lisa Lopes, why did they nickname her "Left Eye" Lopes? Does anyone know, I found it an odd nickname for a pop star...

I am not sure, but I think that it was something that she just made up. When I was watching VH1 the other night they were showing pictures and all the ones they showed of her she either had like a black streak under her left eye or she had a condom looking thing over it. Not sure if there is some other reason, but I think it's just trying to be a gangsta' thing. I saw an interview with her and nothing looked to be wrong with it. Dunno for sure though.

that's kinda what I thought...wasn't she the one of the three that did all the "rapping" parts of their songs and stuff...

I am sad to see anyone die, artist or not, so that is sad, but I can't say as though I will miss TLC...wouldn't know their songs if I heard 'em. I just know some of 'em had little rap pieces in them otherwise just typical, stale pop music type stuff...

I saw part of that VH1 thing as well, that is what got me wondering as they never addressed it on the part of the show I watched...

Yes, she was the one doin all the rappin. And I don't believe she had anything wrong with the eye. It was just a hook sorta thing. Ya know, like wearing your clothe's backward's, or your pant's down around your ankle's. They did have some very good tune's, they were very well crafted and highly produced, and polished. I guess that is what make's em pop tune's, and that is why they went from rag's to riche's to rag's and back to riche's again.

As a side note, she was the psycho one. THe one girl was hot, not sure of her "name", but I remember hearing that she was the one that burned down the football players house. Anre Risen I think it was. I used to DJ for a number of years and they did have some good tunes, I think "Scrubs" was there last hit which it was a cacthy tune actually, kinda well written. Not a big pop fan, but I do like some of the stuff as I listen to just about anything. Never knwo when you'll hear something that you like.

Not a TLC fan, but for some reason I know these things...

Left Eye was the one that burned down Andre Risen's house, and the song was actually called "No Scrubs"

And the last big hit was actually waterfall's. But seein as most people remember No Scrub's, I would say that it really was their last big hit.
