Hit Woman

Hit Woman is the story of Susan Hamilton s wildly improbable life: from early days as a child prodigy and actor, through heady success on the concert stage, in the boardrooms of Madison Ave. and over the talkback microphones of recording studios all over the world. This personal and most intimate tale is spun in a voice that is fresh, funnier than hell, and always unflinchingly candid even in the face of heartbreaking tragedy and more than one wrenching life/love setback. The story covers a broad swath of the musical landscape: lessons from the teenage Maestro James Levine in Aspen; encounters with Mitch Leigh (Man of La Mancha) in his penthouse at the Warwick Hotel; Sir Elton John in the bowels of Madison Square Garden; Chuck Berry at his St. Louis studio (a hostage situation develops); a wild night on the L.A. club scene with Glenn Frey, falling in love with Nashville and its 'bad boys;' and a poignant session with Marvin Gaye in London as well as the UFO's, alligators, cultists, monkeys and witches that provide an ever-changing backdrop to a story that never loses momentum Also included: 11 pages of behind-the-scenes photos and a complete index to the 400+ pages. The funniest, truest book I have read about the music business. James Patterson It s a great and very funny book. Susan was in the middle of everything and writes surpassingly well about all of it. Her deep respect for music and musicians is evident. They deserve it and so does she. Randy Newman With moxie and determination, Susan Hamilton patrolled the intersection of art and commerce Hit Woman is a pioneer s tale, told with panache and detail. Nick Nolte Hit Woman is funny, brilliant, amazing and riveting. Susan Hamilton tells a great story and tells it with verve, humor, and pizzazz! Judy Collins When I played sessions for Susan in the 70s, her stuff was not just great, it was phenomenal! Same with this book! Paul Shaffer There is Nature, forces of Nature and Susan Hamilton. This book is all three. Julian Lennon Susan s book is pure joy and carries you through her colorful life in a way that keeps you riveted and won t let you go. Herbie Hancock It s absolute entertainment! Will Lee Her adventures in music and in life with the great, the near-great, and merely hysterical are rich, funny, moving and unforgettable. A must for anyone who loves American popular music. Dr. Steve Sohmer, former President, Columbia Pictures"
