An American Rock 'n' Roll JourneyBook - 2001
Warm, wise, outrageously funny--and simply outrageous--Rebel Heart is Bebe Buell's no-holds-barred account of her life at the center of the rock scene in the '70s and 80's, when rock stars were royalty. A supermodel before the term was coined, Bebe worked with the best of them (Scavullo, Avedon), met everyone (from Warhol to Dali), and captivated a generation of rock's greatest talents.Her relationships ranged from wunderkind Todd Rundgren to Aerosmith's Steven Tyler (father of her daughter Liv), from Mick Jagger to wordsmith Elvis Costello.Not to mention the fun she had with everyone from Rod Stewart to Ron Wood, Jimmy Page to Jack Nicholson.In Rebel Heart, Bebe drops readers back into the heyday of the scene and reveals the true details of a vanished world that continues to fascinate today.Her spirit informed some of the greatest songs of her time and the life she lived was, above all, fun.Illustrated throughout with over a hundred photographs--many of them rare snaps from Bebe's personal collection--REBEL HEART will deepen even the most ardent fan's understanding of rock 'n' roll.
