Publisher's Summary

Far from bitter or self-pitying, Rock Monster is an honest account of one woman's life-changing experience in a relationship with rock legend Joe Walsh. At once envious, glamorous, debauched, and disturbing, it's her long and winding journey from life in the fast lane to sobriety and redemption.

Set in the late '80s and '90s, these are some of Walsh's darkest years, from spiraling addiction to a stunning comeback with the Eagles' Hell Freezes Over tour. Loaded with true stories never before heard, Rock Monster is essential listening for classic rock fans and anyone touched by addiction. Kristin Casey pulls no punches, sharing gritty details with self-awareness, humor, and affection. Sharply written, bold and incisive, it's the worldly wise tome only an ex-addict, ex-stripper, and ex-rock-chick could give us.

In the tradition of women-in-rock survivor tales - by Marianne Faithful, Crystal Zevon, or Mackenzie Phillips - Kristin Casey pulls a veil on the enduring myth of the lifestyle's glamorous decadence. Rock Monster is a sexy, crazy, cautionary tale of two addicts in love without a single relationship skill.

Still a crazy Joe fan 😜

I've been a fan of the Eagles since the 70's. I really enjoyed this inside look into Joe Walsh's life. Some things I was surprised to hear, but most of it didn't shock me. Kristin did a great job detailing her life with Joe without bad mouthing him. There was no portrait of one sided fault. This book details the good and bad on both sides. Kristin never claims to be an angel or "roll model girlfriend". This is Kristin's journey, Joe just happened to be a big part of it. Very well done from the book to the narration, it's certainly worth a listen for Walsh fans.
