|The autobiography of the leader of several all-woman electric
bands in the 1960s and 1970s.
At a time when women musicians were just the front singers in
groups, Donna dreamed of putting her own group together and
being not only a singer, but an electric lead guitarist. This concept
was groundbreaking in the 1960s, when women musicians typically
played folk music on acoustic guitars, not rock, funk, or R&B on
Excited by Donna's vision and energy, other women signed on to
play drums, keyboards, bass, and rhythm guitar. They quickly
learned about the double standard that existed for men and women.
This did not deter them in any way, but made them stronger and
more determined to achieve their musical goals.
Donna would like to believe that her bands' courage, passion, and
drive helped to open doors for future female musicians. This is a
feel-good autobiography for anyone who's ever had a dream.
