Overview

Featured in the film Twenty Feet From Stardom, the woman whose voice the New York Times said "is as embedded in the history of rock 'n' roll as Eric Clapton's guitar and Bob Dylan's lyrics" tells her story

Right out of high school, Darlene Love began singing lead vocals for legendary producer Phil Spector, cutting such classic hits as the number one "He's a Rebel," "Da Doo Ron Ron," and "He's Sure the Boy I Love." As part of the girl group the Blossoms, she held a regular spot on television's Shindig!, and with Bob B. Soxx & the Blue Jeans she toured the country.

Later, she sang backup—and collected numerous scintillating backstage stories—with, among others, Dionne Warwick, the Mamas and the Papas, and Sonny and Cher. Now in My Name Is Love, Darlene is ready to tell her tales about Elvis coming on to her backstage during his famous '68 Comeback Special, about wild parties she witnessed at Tom Jones's house, and about her love affair with Bill Medley of the Righteous Brothers. She also recalls how she found herself cleaning houses in Beverly Hills, heard herself on the radio, and vowed to make a comeback. That comeback has included roles in all of the Lethal Weapon movies, starring roles on Broadway, and headlining concert appearances worldwide.

A dishy, behind-the-scenes showbiz memoir, My Name Is Love is also the inspiring story of a woman who refused to give up.

    Okay. I know u want me o stop obessing about u so I will stop. But it hurt when u said that. But atleast i still have u..right? Or not? Sighs. That wasnt the reason Im writeing this letter. Im writng this letter to ask u a really important question. If u say no its fine. Or if u dont answer its fine. Or if u love someone se its fine. U deserve the best of the best. Ur soo cute and charming. Espically when u smile but yeah I'll take any answer. Okay so here goes. I love u but Im gonna stop obessing. But I really care. I love it when u hold me in ur arms. I love it when u smile or kiss me. It makes me happy and i melt in the inside. U write thee most sweetest posts. I still remember how much u said u loved me. That means a lot. U make all my fears and worries go away. I never want to lose u but u cant force someone to love u because then it wouldnt be love. I want u to love me for me or just break up with me. I really wanna know if we can actually do this. I wanna do it but its up to u...sighs. so anyone my question is if u had the chance would u take me to prom? I would understand if u said no or something like that. I might have a broken heart but it would be the truth. I love u either way. -Clare
