5.0 out of 5 stars The Only Runaways Read You'll Ever Need!
I saw The Runaways live - when I was just 16 years old. As a result they're not just my favourite band of all time, they're one of my `favourite things EVER'. Which means that unknown to her, Evelyn McDonnell had one of the toughest of all tasks in satisfying me with her latest book. The great news is, she has more than succeeded and with flying colours too...

3.0 out of 5 stars Who to believe?
Since when did The Runaways support Metallica?!??Reasonable book that reads a bit too much like a socialogical report on Californian teens in the mid 70s

5.0 out of 5 stars The Only Runaways Read You'll Ever Need!, 30 Oct 2013

This review is from: Queens of Noise (Hardcover)
I saw The Runaways live - when I was just 16 years old. As a result they're not just my favourite band of all time, they're one of my `favourite things EVER'. Which means that unknown to her, Evelyn McDonnell had one of the toughest of all tasks in satisfying me with her latest book. The great news is, she has more than succeeded and with flying colours too.

"Queens Of Noise" is wonderful achievement whichever way you measure it. Empathy for her subjects, knowledge, musical journalism, you name it, she hits the mark in absolutely every respect.

This book is not only a MUST READ for all Runaways, Joan, Lita, Cherie, or Fowley fans, it's a MUST READ for every fan of music, or indeed, for anyone who ever had a dream.

Meticulously researched, written with style and pace (which I sometimes find lacking with biographical matter) "Queens Of Noise" is a towering great triumph of a book which you certainly don't need to be an aficionado of the girls to enjoy, or appreciate. I give it SIX stars out of FIVE!

Most stuff written about the Runaways is from a single members perspective this is a really thorough study of the band and the lives around it from all viewpoints.
