Sylvie Simmons

Sylvie Simmons left London for L.A in 1977 to be a rock writer and, despite the lack of a penis, that's what she's done ever since. The BBC did a documentary on her called The Rock Chick. She's written a bunch of books, one of them cult fiction but most of them biographies, including 2012's New York Times best-seller I'm Your Man: The Life of Leonard Cohen. In her late fifties she came out as a uke-playing singer-songwriter and signed to Light in the Attic Records, releasing her debut album Sylvie. She's currently collaborating on a book with Debbie Harry. More info at http://sylviesimmons.com
