She helped Elvis Costello and The Clash get their record deals and was there for the punk scene at CBGBs.

The subject matter is very interesting to fans of classic Rock. I've read her work in Vanity Fair for years, and guess I never noticed: I'm surprised at how choppy her writing style is in the book. But it is a fun read.

Really dug it she has the insights on the life and the depravity of some of our greatest rock stars and what it was like in the early years.
