The first ever no-holds barred account of the life of one of rock’s most iconic figures. With candor and lyricism Rickie Lee Jones takes us on the journey from her nomadic childhood to her beginnings at LA’s Troubadour, her tumultuous relationship with Tom Waits, her battle with drugs, and longevity as a woman in rock and roll.

MOJO interview

Conversation with my friend Teresa Tudury (1)

This 7 minute zoom is the first in a series of talks with musicians Teresa Tudury (, long time friend of mine and singer of original songs. Her perspective of my work is insightful. She is a fantastic intellect and humorist, and her bio is available on my website. For some (accidental) reason none of the book stores hired women to talk about the book. Here we are together in the first -edited by me!!- recorded in March. Check out how women girlfriends talk to each other when no one is around! I just washed my hair!
