Summary
"When Michelle Leon first saw Lori Barbero and Kat Bjelland perform at a party in Minneapolis, she 'knew that was it, it was everything.' She got herself a bass, taught herself to play--and before she knew it was playing at clubs and on stages around the Twin Cities, throughout the nation, and across the globe. Babes in Toyland burst on the punk rock scene in the late 1980s with their raw, powerful music and sharp, often haunting lyrics, influencing a generation of musicians to come. In I Live Inside, Leon describes in vivid, lyrical prose her life with Babes in Toyland, set in counterpart to her memories as a shy, awkward child growing up in the Minneapolis suburbs. Revealing her personal doubts and struggle to belong, she explores the ups and downs of life as a touring musician and with her bandmates. Leon's deeply emotional, sometimes volatile relationship with her beloved Joe comes to an abrupt and tragic end, further pushing her both inward and away from the world of rock and roll. This gripping, moving story provides a peek inside the life of a musician and inside a young woman in search of herself." -- From dust jacket
