Kristin Hersh On World Cafe

In this session, the Throwing Muses frontwoman and author shares a few of her many compelling stories, including the tale of rescuing her kids from a burning tour bus.
You wanna talk about stories? Kristin Hersh has stories. You might know Hersh as the frontwoman for the innovative late '80s-early '90s alt-rock band Throwing Muses or the hard-rocking power trio 50 Foot Wave. She's also an author — her 2010 memoir Rat Girl was named No. 8 on Rolling Stone's "25 Greatest Rock Memoirs of All Time" list.
