i'm currently about a third of the way through anne murray's biography; highlights of the first 100 pages include:

-how she was a big drunk in high school
-how she went to university to become a gym teacher (favourite sport: ladies golf)
-how, when she was having creative differences with her label, she acquired her first contract until false pretences, set it on fire, and then moved and changed her phone number
-how, when brian mulroney was courting her in university, she would get her roommate to pretend she wasn't home when he called, because she thought he was a total drip
-how she bought a mink fur in vegas, lied about it at customs when coming back into canada, and was the subject of an rcmp investigation
-how she busted her bandmates out of the hospital when they were overdosing on heroin
-how she dropped by sex clubs in sweden
-how, when lenny breau was in her band, she spent most evenings talking him down from assorted acid trips
-how dusty springfield, one of her BFFs, repeatedly tried to get into her pants

and there's so much left!

seriously, who knew?

from the most recent 40 pages:

-how she had a long and torturous affair with a married man
-how her beloved but rowdy early lesbian following would get out of hand at concerts and into states of near riot
-how a gaggle of lesbians once chased her back to her hotel room after a show and tried banging down her door
-how an elderly woman from winnipeg got do drunk when they were dining together that she barfed her dentures out in the back seat of anne's car
-how one of her best friends in the world remains alice cooper, and how she stays at his place when she's in l.a.

What?! I thought Alice Cooper lived in Phoenix. That was our one claim to fame, besides Erma Bombeck and the guy who writes (wrote?) the stupid Family Circus. I suppose he could have moved, or have multiple residences, but I do know he went to the high school behind the mall where I used to work, and a friend of mine almost got a job babysitting for him once.

well, according to anne he also has a place in laurel canyon. but perhaps all this trampiness and debauchery is an elaborate ruse? i wouldn't put it past her at this point.
