"Wild Thing" Honored

Sandy West by Jerry Venneman

Sandy West by Jerry Venneman

Every year Da Capo Books honors the previous year’s best pop criticism in the anthology Best Music Writing, edited by Daphne Carr. The collection of pieces from 2010 will include my LA Weekly story “Wild Thing,” about the late, great Runaway Sandy West. I’m honored to be included, and glad that Sandy’s inspiring but tragic life will be memorialized.

Sandy West Story

For the last few months I have been living with the memory of one of rock’s great drummers, Sandy West. I hope I have honored her — the good and the bad and the brave and the tragic adventure of the original Runaway — with this LA Weekly story. I have a lot more to say about Sandy, the band, the movie, etc. — and right now I’m trying to say it in my thesis. More to come.

In the meantime, if there is a heaven, I hope she and Alex Chilton are up there jamming.
