Gathers has just become a member of the funk-rock band and insists that despite her diva rep, she can play well with others.
In her words, I was a model and a singer for years. Thats just like being in a group.
Still, she admits that the fact shes the only girl in the 8-person band is just the way she likes it.
Although Gathers didnt win American Idol, she feels she benefitted by not going all the way because, as she puts it, What you want to be is not what the machine wants you to be.
Gathers is currently recording songs with Bomb Squad and is also working on a solo album, tentatively titled Coal To My Diamond.
She says the title refers to the fact that a diamond starts as a lump of coal and only becomes a beautiful sparkling thing under extreme pressure.
