What do Motörhead, Black Sabbath, Elvis Costello, Rush and Chumbawamba have in common? Kim Hawes, pioneering female tour manager.

Through hard work, hard partying and hard times, Kim hurled a TV through the glass ceiling of the male-dominated music industry. Sleeping on tour buses, kicking superstars offstage and pranking members of the world’s biggest rock bands, Kim has done it all.

Lipstick and Leather is no ordinary tale of life on the road.

MEDIA REVIEWS

‘A warts and all journey through the highs and lows of the touring world – required reading for anyone who wants to move into that world.’

‘I don’t think I’ve read a better book about the sheer hard work and determination it takes to put a band on stage.’

‘Kim Hawes took lipstick and feminism deep into the heart of macho darkness and came out trumps as this book hilariously and poignantly reveals.’

‘Some hugely colourful stories and wild anecdotes. An inspirational read and a life well lived!’

‘A barrage of mishaps and mischief, stunts and scrapes, with all sorts of bands and artists pretending to be adults.’
