About the Author

Sylvie Simmons is a renowned British rock writer who misspent her youth and several subsequent decades hanging with bands and taking notes. Her writing has appeared in countless publications and collections including the legendary US magazine Creem and UK's MOJO, for whom she still writes today.
Along the way, living variously in London, Los Angeles, France and San Francisco, she acquired an award or two, became the subject of a BBC documentary (The Rock Chick) and wrote a number of highly-acclaimed books.
Serge Gainsbourg: A Fistful of Gitanes was originally published in 2001. She followed with books on Neil Young, Reflections in Broken Glass; the cult short story collection Too Weird for Ziggy; and, most recently, the international bestseller I'm Your Man: The Life of Leonard Cohen, which she promoted by going on the road for a year with her book and ukulele; like all rock writers, she has an inner rockstar. Her debut album Sylvie was released on Light In The Attic Records in 2014.
