Interview with Rickie Lee Jones

When Rickie Lee Jones first hit the scene in 1979, the blonde beatnik in the beret was touted as the next big thing–the next Joni Mitchell, the next singer-songwriter that would set the world on fire. Of course, as her hit single “Chuck E.’s in Love” illustrated, she wasn’t another Mitchell. Her muse was its own beast. But like Mitchell, Jones would follow wherever it led. Convention be damned.
