Neon Angel w/ Cherie Currie

In this candid autobiography, Cherie Currie—the original lead singer of ‘70s teenage all-girl rock band The Runaways—powerfully recounts her years in the band, her friendship with guitarist Joan Jett, and her struggle with drugs. An intense, behind-the-scenes look at rock music in the gritty, post-glam era, Neon Angel is a must-read for anyone whose heart beats to the rhythm of David Bowie, Suzi Quatro, Nick Gilder, and the Sex Pistols, and for every fan of the movie it inspired: The Runaways, starring Dakota Fanning and Kristen Stewart as Cherie Currie and Joan Jett.

“Raw and riveting.”

– LA Weekly

“The striking thing about The Runaways, is how authentic it feels… One reason may be that the movie is partly based on Neon Angel, the newly revamped autobiography by the group’s lead singer Cherie Currie (co-written with the help of Sick City’s Tony O’Neill), whose chillingly quick self-destruction is relived through Dakota Fanning.”
