Rock’s Backpages editor Barney Hoskyns at one point was working with Kim Fowley on his memoir, so it’s no surprise that the archive published a package of print and audio clips about the late maestro — including my own LA Times piece from 2012. Randy Lewis’s LA Times obit also quoted heavily from that article — and Randall Roberts grabbed a nice quote from Queens of Noise in his apt remembrance.

The phenomenal rock archives Rock’s Backpages is featuring an excerpt from Queens of Noise this week, along with some other tasty Runaways-related morsels from their library. RBP was an extraordinary resource for me in my own work on the book. Founder and author Barney Hoskyns is THE authority on West Coast rock (although he’s a Brit). It’s an honor to be in their company.
