Ronnie Spector, the original bad girl of rock and roll, tells the story of her meteoric rise from the streets of Spanish Harlem to the pinnacle of pop stardom as lead singer of the fabulous Ronettes. With refreshing candor, Ronnie recounts the details of a one-of-a-kind life lived in the very epicenter of rock and roll, from her days as a teenage dancer at New York's Peppermint Lounge to her triumphant tours as a headliner with both the Beatles and the Rolling Stones. Ronnie transports the reader back to the legendary Gold Star studios, where she recorded the seminal rock classics qBaby I Love You, q qWalking in the Rain, q and qBe My Baby, q the hit song that Brian Wilson hailed as qthe greatest record ever.q In riveting detail, Ronnie also reveals the nightmare that followed her early marriage to Phil Spector, the obsessive pop genius whose talent in the studio was matched only by the madness he revealed behind the locked doors of his 23-room mansion where Ronnie was kept a virtual prisoner for much of her marriage. Ronnie tells of her escape from that dark ordeal: barefoot, and carrying only what she could fit into the pockets of her jeans. And finally, Ronnie recounts her long road back to sanity, and how, with the help of friends like Bruce Springsteen, John Lennon and Billy Joel, she rediscovered her voice, and found fulfillment late in life as a wife, mother, and a timeless rock and roll icon.Ronnie Spector, the original bad girl of rock and roll, tells the story of her meteoric rise from the streets of Spanish Harlem to the pinnacle of pop stardom as lead singer of the fabulous Ronettes.
