Cherie Currie Redux

After 35 years, Runaways singer Cherie Currie has released a new album, Reverie, via iTunes. I interviewed her for Cuepoint about her reunion with Kim Fowley and Lita Ford.

Cherie, Joan, and Lita

Cherie, Joan, and Lita

In what I believe is a first since the Runaways broke up, Joan Jett, Cherie Currie, and Lita Ford were together, posing for cameras backstage at the Revolver Golden Gods Awards in LA. Joan was a recipient of the heavy metal honor. I have to say, they look great. Maybe they really will do a reunion. In this interview, Dee Snider shows love for his (twisted) sisters — and also pushes for more to come.

Kim, Lita, and Cherie — Reunited?

Kim Fowley, Lita Ford, and Cherie Currie recently spent four days in the studio, according to postings on Kim’s Facebook page. This is pretty incredible, given how intensely the producer and the singer hated each other for decades. While Cherie has been publicly saying that she had forgiven him, Kim has been nowhere near as forgiving of her — until now, apparently. And of course, it was a fight between Lita and Cherie that sent Currie packing from the Runaways in 1977. I’m very happy to see that after 36 years, this trio is not only able to sit in a room together; they apparently spent four days recording. This is all the more remarkable given Kim’s recent cancer surgery. If these three can bury the hatchet, can’t our government get back in business? And is Joan going to finally come around?

Cherie Currie Posts on Runaways Reunion

Cherie Currie reportedly posted Lita Ford’s comments about a Runaways reunion on her Facebook page. So it looks like she’s on board. Who will play bass? And drums? Laurie McAllister and Sandy West are no longer with us. And Jackie Fox and Vicki Blue have not been on Joan’s good side. Tell me what you think below.
