The Many Faces of Runaways' Rock Star Cherie Currie

Friday, April 09, 2010

Most people know Cherie Currie as the lead singer of the '70s all-girl rock band The Runaways, but it turns out that she's had at least a half a dozen other strange and dazzling careers since then, including writer, retail clerk and chainsaw artist.

With today's wide release of the The Runaways, a film based on her memoir, "Neon Angel: A Memoir of a Runaway," we talk with Currie about her many reinventions, her struggles, and advice she has for today's young women.
