Last Chance Texaco: Chronicles of an American Troubadour

Recorded: 04/26/2021

Join legendary singer, songwriter Rickie Lee Jones live to celebrate the release of her memoir Last Chance Texaco: Chronicles of an American Troubadour.

“This tender, fierce, intimate memoir is testament that Jones has lived a life as brave… and rich as her music – with love, heartbreak, addiction, and magic, sprinkled throughout.” O, the Oprah Magazine
“Men leave, fame fizzles, family breaks your heart… but Jones knows a good story and how to tell it.” Kirkus (starred review)

Join two-time Grammy Award-winner Ricke Lee Jones live and discover Last Chance Texaco: Chronicles of an American Troubadour, the first ever no-holds-barred account of her life in her own words—a tale of desperate chances and impossible triumphs.

Last Chance Texaco is the first ever no-holds-barred account of the life of two-time Grammy Award-winner Rickie Lee Jones in her own words.  It is a tale of desperate chances and impossible triumphs, an adventure story of a girl who beat the odds and grew up to become one of the most legendary artists of her time, turning adversity and hopelessness into timeless music.

With candor and lyricism, the “Duchess of Coolsville” (Time) takes us on a singular journey through her nomadic childhood, to her years as a teenage runaway, through her legendary love affair with Tom Waits and ultimately her longevity as the hardest working woman in rock and roll.  Rickie Lee’s stories are rich with the infamous characters of her early songs — “Weasel and the White Boys Cool,” “Danny’s All-Star Joint,” and “Easy Money” — but long before her notoriety in show business, there was a vaudevillian cast of hitchhikers, bank robbers, jail breaks, drug mules, a pimp with a heart of gold and tales of her fabled ancestors.

In this electrifying and intimate memoir by one of the most remarkable, trailblazing, and tenacious women in music are never-before-told stories of the girl in the raspberry beret —a singer-songwriter whose music defied categorization and inspired American pop culture for decades.

The receipt you receive via email immediately after you register is all you need to know you’re set for the upcoming event.

About 48 hours before the live event is scheduled to begin, we’ll send you a personalized email confirming everything’s on schedule and containing easy instructions for accessing the event.

We’ll send another reminder on the day of the event itself, and we’ll be available online just before the event begins to make sure you have no problems joining when the time is right.

If you’ve not received confirmation of your purchase, it’s not because we haven’t sent it. In fact, we send a confirmation right away to make sure that we can reach you with event details.

If you haven’t received a confirmation, check your “junk” or “promotions” email first — some people’s email programs group unfamiliar emails in these types of folders. The email date and time should match closely the time you purchased your ticket online.

If the confirmation email is not there, there’s a small possibility that your email address wasn’t entered as you intended when you registered (You’d be surprised, but this happens). If we don’t have your proper email address, we can’t contact you.

In any case, if you can’t find your confirmation email, please send us a note at pre.event@extendedsession.com. We’ll get back to you right away!
