It’s that time of year, people... time to figure out what the hell to buy our friends, family members, boyfriends/girlfriends or guys/girls that you "like-like". Here are some recommendations for the lady-rocker-lovers in your life:
Ronnie Spector’s Be My Baby. I read this book in one sitting. I actually own 3 copies of this book because people keep giving it to me as a present thinking I don't have it! The paperback version is updated with new material!
My Name is Love: The Darlene Love Story Again, a total must have.
When I Grow Up: a Memoir Juliana Hatfield’s book about her being totally talented and cool.
Girls to the Front: The True Story of the Riot Grrrl Revolution I haven’t read this one yet, but it’s definitely in my Amazon Wish List.
For the girl that's not quite old enough to be a guitar shredder, but will be in a few years: Rock 'n Roll Camp for Girls: How to Start a Band, Write Songs, Record an Album, and Rock Out!
RIP ARI UP Typical Girls: The Story of the Slits
I own two copies of this Blondie book. One for reading and one to cut out all the pictures and use them for an art project that never happened!
Punk Pioneers: When Punk Was Fun Probably one of the coolest and best punk photographers of all time, Jenny Lens, released a book a few years ago of all her amazing photography.
60's/70's fans might enjoy this one.
Pamela Des Barres wrote a book about being a groupie in the 60's and 70's. I've always wanted to read this and I'm sure she has some pretty... um... "interesting" stories...
