Neon angel : a memoir of a Runaway by Cherie Currie( Book )

4 editions published between 2010 and 2014 in English and held by 494 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Cherie Currie, with her signature Bowie haircut and fishnet stockings, was the lead singer of seventies teenage all-girl rock band the Runaways. At the tender age of fifteen, she joined a group of talented girls--Joan Jett and Lita Ford on guitar, Jackie Fox on bass, and Sandy West on drums--who could play rock like no one else. Arriving on the Los Angeles music scene in 1975, they catapulted from playing small clubs to selling out major stadiums and touring the world. Currie's is a riveting story of girl empowerment and fame, but it is also an intensely personal account of her struggles with drugs, sexual abuse, and violence. She and her bandmates, runaways all, were thrown into a decadent, high-pressure music scene where they had to grow up fast and experience things that no teenage girls should. Her book exposes the side of the music industry fans don't see.--From publisher description

Digging the vein by Tony O'Neill( Book )

"On a relentless Los Angeles summer day, a man walks barefoot over broken glass and melting tarmac to meet his connection, praying his line of credit will be extended to one more balloon of heroin. He's alone, penniless, wrecked by violent withdrawals, and last night he robbed a crack dealer before abandoning his apartment." "Welcome to Hollywood, and welcome to Digging the Vein. Tony O'Neill's debut is based on his own experiences as an addict and side-man to acts as diverse as the Brian Jonestown Massacre, Kenickie, and Marc Almond. Through the eyes of his anonymous narrator, see what few tourists ever will: the needle exchanges, methadone clinics, short let motels, and scoring spots beneath the wings of the City of Los Angeles."--BOOK JACKET
