Metal Sludge’s famous 20 Questions!

Cherie Currie talks about David Bowie, Kim Fowley, getting raped at 14, Lita, Joan & The Runaways.


"He’s lucky he’s not in jail. But he’s old and sickly now, and you know what? I care about Kim Fowley, I really do. When the movie was in preparation, I saw Kim at a party, and my whole attitude changed. I mean, he stole our money from Capitol Records. In Australia, he put out this album of me and my sister with these crappy liner notes. I didn’t even know about it, and he made money on that record that I had nothing to do with. I was pretty pissed. I carried that anger and hurt but eventually I moved on."

Mike Tramp on White Lion, Vito Bratta, Sebastian Bach, big pay checks & the hey day of the 80s


"My thoughts about Sebastian Bach is he is what he is.

Blackboard Jungle’s Britt Pennella talks the Sunset Strip glory days, fist fights & a little smack!


“I have memories of Steeler and Keel. I thought Rik Fox was cool of all things. Then I got to Hollywood, and he was such a prick when I think back to the way he treated me. I was just a 19-year-old kid. I would tell him to fuck off now.”

"I remember the night Guns N’ Roses played Cathouse, Andy McCoy of Hanoi Rocks was on heroin drooling right in front of us. I was like no way dude!"

"When I had no band, this girl I dated had all these tickets for Pretty Boy Floyd, and I would take ‘em and stand outside the Roxy and sell the tickets. I made so much money that I never had to work. She wasn't giving them to me to scalp, I was strealing them. The whole stack and would sell them."
