The book’s author reiterated the importance of giving women in the arts an independent voice.

Speaking to Rolling Stone she said: “I wanted you to feel immersed in it, and not like you were reading fiction, but like you were there.

“For me, the best way to do that was to mimic what I would argue is the best medium for stories about rock, which is a rock documentary.

“I wanted it to feel like an episode of Behind the Music, as if you were hearing it from the people directly.

“That there was no filter. The conclusion I came to was that it had to be an oral history.”

Viewers have taken to Twitter to share their thoughts on the series so far.
