How I Survived Mascara, Miniskirts, and Madness or My Life as a Fabulous Ronette

Description

Rock icon Ronnie Spector reveals the story of her dreamlike rise from the streets of Harlem to the pinnacle of rock stardom as lead singer of the Ronettes, and her nightmare descent into madness as the wife of Phil Spector, the pop hitmaker who kept her a virtual prisoner behind the locked doors of his darkened Beverly Hills mansion. Ronnie’s escape from that ordeal, and her subsequent struggle to reclaim her voice, her career, and her sanity, provide an emotion-packed climax to this smart, funny, and inspiring autobiography, named one of “The Top 25 Rock Memoirs of All Time” by Rolling Stone.

Now available for the first time as an eBook, this completely redesigned and corrected edition features 75 stunning color and black and white photographs from the singer’s personal collection—many appearing in print for the first time—as well as a completely revised and updated discography that offers the most comprehensive survey of Ronnie’s recording career ever published. 

From Publishers Weekly

Aug 29, 1990 – Lead singer for the Ronettes, one of the better so-called ``girl groups'' of the 1960s, Spector provides an insider's look at the madness and glamour of an explosive period in rock music. Much of the book revolves around her relationship with Phil Spector, the star-making producer whose ``Wall of Sound'' concept revolutionized recording studio technique. According to the singer, her husband was obsessed with control, keeping her a virtual prisoner in his mansion for nearly five years before she broke free to reestablish a life and career of her own. Now remarried with two children, and having met with success in her struggle against alcoholism, the singer, aided by freelance writer Waldron, reminisces with apparent objectivity. Her candor, amid the recent rash of tell-all books by aging rock stars, is refreshing and puts Be My Baby a cut above the standard self-serving, bonkers-and-back autobiography. Photos not seen by PW.
