Last Chance Texaco: Chronicles of an American Troubadour with Rickie Lee Jones

Memoir

Last Chance Texaco is the first ever no-holds-barred account of the life of one of rock’s hardest working women in her own words. With candor and lyricism Rickie Lee Jones takes us on the journey of her exceptional life: from her nomadic childhood as the granddaughter of vaudevillian performers, to her father’s abandonment of the family and her years as a teenage runaway, her beginnings at LA’s Troubadour club, to her tumultuous relationship with Tom Waits, her battle with drugs, and longevity as a woman in rock and roll. Jones will be in conversation with Ann Powers, music critic for National Public Radio.
