    Just wanted to let you know, that Taste of Honey disbanded many years ago,
    and Janice Marie and Hazel Payne have led separate lives and careers for many years.
    I am a singer who has worked over the years with Hazel, and she said that she
    and Janice have not spoken for more than 10 years. Apparently there is a lot of ill will since the demise of the band.
    Hazel has a cover band that does worldwide tours to sell out crowds.
    she currently resides in Las Vegas
