Melissa Etheridge opens her autobiography, The Truth Is….:My Life In Love And Music, by describing her past-life regression. In the mid-'80s a therapist hypnotized her and she described, “…being a half-Indian man in the 1800s. A doctor who died of scleroderma, a disease that hardens the skin. Then I go back farther and I’m an actor in a German cabaret in the 1600s. I was a woman dressed as a man, performing for a group of townspeople.” Some things never change!
