Ah, Claire... Without question the best known of all the band members Melanie has worked with (and, quite
possibly, will ever work with), she was always ready to spend time with fans signing autographs, posing for
photos and just being a really nice person. Onstage she was by far the most animated of the band, dancing
around the stage almost as much as Melanie.
Claire is also an solo artist with her band Pillow (www.pillowclub.co.uk), and can be found from time to time singing in London clubs.
