Lyricals #13: Cherry Bomb

(Last Updated On: April 10, 2020)

I’ll admit, I’m a Lita Ford in the world of Rock ‘n’ Roll runaways. Maybe you’re a Cherie or a Joan. Either way, you’re one tough bitch. You have to be to survive this world.

You would have to be to survive the grilling of Kim Fowley. The outlandish chides and potentially abusive behavior imposed maturity quickly. Even so, Fowley helped to catalyze rock legends and worked alongside them–The Runaways, KISS, Alice Cooper.

He didn’t make Lita or Joan’s careers. They manifested their own musical destinies. Be magnificent in a mundane world. Be a goddamn Ch-ch-ch-cherry bomb!
