I know J and Amma have been mentioned in Mike Watt’s tour diaries. I think one from 2000 talks about J introducing Amma to Watt (she hugged him) and also J traveling with a doll of Amma in a pouch. she is a spiritual guide who makes the bad thoughts come out of your mind. I really appreciate that J is a spiritual person—that is so much healthier than many other performers who seek solace in the bottle or other unhealthy things. not that a little fun is bad but people can overdo it and ruin themselves.
