Kathy Valentine presents All I Ever Wanted: A Rock ‘n’ Roll Memoir
In conversation with Lizz Winstead
The Go-Go’s became the first multi-platinum-selling, all-female band to play instruments themselves, write their own songs, and have a number one album. For bassist Kathy Valentine, the band’s success was the fulfillment of a lifelong dream—but it’s only part of her story. Her new memoir All I Ever Wanted: A Rock 'n' Roll Memoir traces the path that took her from her childhood in Texas—where she all but raised herself—to the height of rock ’n’ roll stardom, devastation after the collapse of the band that had come to define her, and the quest to regain her sense of self after its end. A roller coaster of sex, drugs, and of course music, All I Ever Wanted is also a story of what it takes to find success and find yourself, even when it all comes crashing down. Valentine takes the (virtual!) stage for a music-infused talk about her book and the challenges of women in entertainment with comedian and writer Lizz Winstead, co-creator of The Daily Show.
