she is stirring up some controversy, but hey, she always spoke her mind ... 56699.html

cant wait to read her memoir

reading her comments it makes me wonder if her experience was the inspiration for Tattooed Love Boys???

picked up a copy of her autobiography Reckless last week
a good read
get a great perspective of her life in her lyrics over the years
was basically a lost soul for many years but discovered her desire to become a singer in a band
book is best when it is London where we get a first hand look at the punk scene at it's beginning
my only gripe is that the book ends when Pete and James both die and nothing is mentioned about her getting back on her feet musically and her marriage to Jim Kerr (Simple Minds) which would have been just as interesting, etc
