Christmas 2017 present from Sweeter.
I read this in the month after Christmas, and loved it. So cool! From her age five stage debut at the elbow of a well-meaning drunkard grandfather to her current third solo album before Dreams was written as the creative result of an intense love affair with the Eagles lead guitarist Joe Walsh. In her own words, the years 1983-86 were a blur. When she came to after he left her, she had a trove of romantic songs waiting to be written.
The Welsh Witch is enchanting, no doubt about that. I still go into a trance with every playing of "Rhiannon" and "Little Lies."
The end of the 80's led to her sobriety in the early 90's, and her enduring presence in the world of music is legendary. LOVED this book, like I seem to love all Stephen Davis. But this the most.
Great read!
