Revue de presse

“Illuminating, entertaining. ... Her sardonic observations border on the hilarious.” (Publishers Weekly)

“This fine look at a multidimensional star is wonderfully informative, with a scintillating soupcon of salaciousness” (Booklist)

“Gives... a perspective missing from most rock autobiographies” (New York Times Book Review)

“Darlene is one of the most talented artists I’ve ever heard!” (Cher)

Darlene Love remains... one of the greatest voices in all of pop music. ... She is as musical as it gets. I love Love!” (Bette Midler)

Présentation de l'éditeur

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.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The Best Rock Bio EVER 8 décembre 1998
Par Kim K. - Publié sur
Finished reading My Name Is Love within 24 hours, only taking breaks to eat,sleep & shower! What a story! What a great woman! Being a rapidly-aging baby boomer myself, I have long followed Darlene's career, but this book really gave me some incite into how much the woman has been through. I knew,for instance,she was Phil Spector's primary backup singer for everyone on his Phillies records label, but never imagined how many other singers and groups she sang along with, not just on record but in concert too! Truly amazing. Darlene is probably the most underrated singer on the planet, and one of the most down to earth as well. Her account of growing up and eventually facing prejudice, her failed marriages and her shabby treatment not just by Spector but from peers in the industry, record company executives, attorneys,etc. is a really sad story. Thankfully, Darlene is a survivor, always having great faith in God, the love of her husband Alton, plus a terrific sense of humor. She often relates in this book how so many people still don't know who she is or just pass her by on the street. Well, if I were fortunate enough to be on the same sidewalk as Darlene, I would be too starstruck to even say hello or remember my name. If only today's "divas" had an ounce of her talent and integrity. Whether or not you're a fan of Darlene's and/or 60's music, this is a must read for the historical info alone! Thanks for all the music, Darlene, and keep on singin'!

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Booklist gets it wrong 14 octobre 1998
Par Un client - Publié sur
Ah, the same problem continues to plague Darlene even after her book sets the record straight! From the late 1950s through the early 1970s, Darlene was a member (and usually the lead singer) of the Blossoms, who cut many singles for a variety of labels during that time. As for her early/mid-60s work with that creep Phil Spector, Darlene sang under a number of guises. First, she and the Blossoms cut two singles that Spector released as the Crystals (including the classic "He's a Rebel"), since the REAL Crystals already had a couple of hits and thus some name recognition. Second, Darlene cut a few singles under her own name. In fact, "Da Doo Ron Ron" was initially cut as a Darlene Love single, but Spector subsequently replaced her vocal with that of one of the Crystals, Lala Brooks, and ultimately released it as the Crystals. As for the Blue Jeans, they were a studio concoction, and Darlene sang on records under that name, too. If you love Darlene's singing (as anyone familiar with it is bound to), you'll be interested in this book. Good luck to you, Darlene; you've earned all you get and so much more.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 A unsung hero of rock 'n' roll sings on the page as well 14 octobre 1998
Par David Scott - Publié sur
Pop star autobiographies appeal on many levels: there's the kind that dish the dirt, the kind that offer insight into the industry, and -- rarest of all -- the kind that offer truth about and insight into our lives and times. Love and Hoerburger succeed on all three levels. We get wonderful "you are there" stories on Phil Spector, Elvis, Tom Jones and Dionne Warwick (to drop but a few names). And Love's accounts of nearly achieving stardom offer real (and often heartbreaking) insight into a industry (and world) where sheer talent doesn't always come out on top. But the book is at its best when Darlene unflinchingly takes on topics such as racism, working mothers, affairs of the heart and a deep, abiding faith. Hers is a voice of wisdom and experience, not just hallow platitudes offered from a millionaire superstar. Darlene's voice long has been one of rock and roll's undersung glories. With "My Name Is Love," she poves that she can sing on the page with the same stirring truthfulness.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A RARE TREAT 30 avril 1999
Par Un client - Publié sur
This was one of the most inspiring autobiographies I have ever read and I have read many. Darlene Love, I love you and I was glad you told your story to the world. I am awaiting the day that your star will shine bright and the world will know what true "Love" is. This is a must read for music lovers, Ms. Love shows the other side of the business and offers insights on talented artist who never made it and who got ripped off along the way, but still got by in spite of it all. She is a true H-E-R-O worthy af all our respect. She is the unknown Diva and she should take her place along with Aretha, Patti, Glady's, Dionne, and Diana.
