Impossible to put down!!
I\'ve re-read this book several times over the years, and on each occassion, I ended up staying up all night to read the whole thing. It\'s the most compelling rock & roll bio ever written. Amazing the girl lived through it all to become what she is today. If you\'re interested, her website is CherieCurrie.com. And by the way, this is a super rare book. Often sells for $60-80 on the collector\'s market.
This is a wild book. One minute I wished I was there hanging out and partying with Cherie, then the next chapter would start and I'd feel such horror at what I was reading. Kind of like if you were on a roller coster, laughing and having fun, then you notice your harness is missing... and that loop is coming up. That sums up her teenage/young adult life.
Cherie Currie is not afraid to tell all. Even if it means exposing her darkest moments in life, her fears, her failures, addictions, etc.
She has overcome a lot. But she is more than a survivor. She knows how and why she conquered her demons and prevailed.
Its hard to live Cheries life!
I think its strong by cherie to write a book about her life, cause she hadn't exactly "the perfect life" I really liked the book and give it 5 stars!
Female musicians must read!!!
Cheri Currie was the beginning of the all-female rock n roll movement. This book depicts the ups and downs of her music career with "The Runaways". From performing music in truck stops to touring Europe! Then drug abuse and a victim of crime! A must read for all females contemplating the music industry.
