Girl in a Band

I liked reading about the inspiration behind some of the Sonic Youth songs.  I was surprised at how much freedom Kim Gordon had growing up.  Seems like she had a very fun California childhood.  I laughed at Danny Elfman's inclusion in the book because he seemed to be following me around during the time I read it.  But, wow, sour grapes!  But can you blame her?  She gave so much to Thurston, to the band, to raising their daughter and what a betrayal.  She is a good writer because you can feel the anger.
