Cherie Currie is an American musician, actress and artist. She is best known as the lead singer of the rock band The Runaways in the late 1970s. After the band’s breakup, she released a solo album and later became a member of the all-female band Fanny.

Currie was born in Santa Monica, California, on November 30, 1959, the second of four children of Donna Currie and Roger Currie. Her father was a Hollywood producer and her mother was a model. She has two older sisters, Marie and Sondra, and a younger brother, Robert. Currie’s parents divorced when she was four years old and she was raised by her mother.

Currie began her musical career in 1975 as the lead singer of The Runaways, a teenage all-female rock band from Los Angeles. The band released four albums between 1976 and 1979 and toured extensively throughout the United States, Japan and Europe. The Runaways were popular among teenage girls but were also criticized for their wild behavior and explicit lyrics.

After the band’s breakup, Currie released her solo debut album, Beauty’s Only Skin Deep, in 1978. The album was a commercial disappointment and Currie subsequently joined the all-female band Fanny. She appeared with Fanny on two albums before leaving the group in 1985.

In the 1990s, Currie made several acting appearances, including roles in the films Foxfire (1996) and Jawbreaker (1999). She also released a second solo album, Blvds of Splendor, in 1997.

Quotes

#Quote
1Sandy West was by far, the greatest female drummer in the history of rock and roll. No one could compete or even come close to her, but the most important was her heart. Sandy West loved her fans, her friends and family almost to a fault. She would do absolutely anything for the people she loved. It will never be the same for me again to step on a stage, because Sandy West was the best and I will miss her forever.
2[on The Runaways (2010), in which actress Dakota Fanning portrays her] I couldn't be happier to see Dakota playing me. I actually forget it's my story, just because she's so good and so believable.
3[on growing up with her twin sister Marie Currie] Marie was always the cute twin, the popular twin. I was the quiet twin, the geeky twin.
4[on her career] I don't regret any of it. I enjoy being different.
