Thrust into the burning spotlight of the 70s rock scene The Runaways cast their indelible stamp with their fusion of glam and punk in a cauldron of hard rock.
Vocalist Cherie Currie was just 15 years old when she was recruited into the ranks of the band in 1975. Once described as “the lost daughter of Iggy Pop and Brigitte Bardot! by Bomp! magazine there’s much more to Cherie than her career fronting The Runaways that spanned across three short years.
Speaking candidly to Metal Planet Music Cherie talks of love and loss alongside what drives her. From rock n’ roll to author via acting and becoming an award-winning professional chainsaw artist there can be no doubt whatsoever that Cherie has led a rich and diverse life. No back touring across the UK and Scandinavia Cherie is in control of her destiny and grateful for life’s opportunities.
Inexplicably shelved for a decade her album ‘Blvds Of Splendour’ was finally released a couple of years ago. Featuring the likes of Duff McKagan, Matt Sorum, Slash and Billy Corgan it’s pretty damn clear that Cherie is relieved to see her recordings make the light of day.
Pragmatically she talks through her perspective upon the situation and looks forward too. An engaging, honest and forthright person I’m left admiring the beauty of the soul within Cherie.
