Here's one of my favourite excerpts:
Did Kim Fowley really show up to the premiere of Desperate Teenage Lovedolls with dynamite strapped to his body?
Jeff McDonald: No, he showed up with a briefcase he said contained a blowtorch, and said he would blowtorch Jennifer Schwartz’s face and she’d never act again. He also had a very large African-American woman dressed in a Zulu outfit as his bodyguard, and she was carrying a spear.
Steve McDonald: He also explained that she was in the new Runaways—this was like 1984, and these were the new Runaways, who were like the United Colors of Bennetton.
Roy McDonald: She was the Zulu Cherie Currie.
SM: They had a Swedish member, an Armenian member...
Robert Hecker: It was like the Spice Girls a decade ahead of time.
JM: Later he and Jennifer were in a meeting together, and he asked her for a ride home, and she was like, ‘No! You threatened to blowtorch my face off!’ And he said, ‘But there’s no money in that.’
