What can you learn from someone who has managed such incendiary characters as Axl Rose, Slash and worked with people like Tommy Lee? You will have the opportunity to ask your own questions alongside a fascinating interview into the highs and lows of living life in the fast lane.

She got her start the ’80’s doing record retail, booking then doing management with Guns N’ Roses and many others . GNR went from crashing in her apartment to thanking her at their Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction.
