From Wikipedia, the free Encyclopedia

Cherie Currie (born November 30, 1959) is a rock and roll singer and actress. She was the lead vocalist of The Runaways, an all-female hard rock, proto-punk band from Los Angeles in the mid-to-late 1970s.

Described as "the lost daughter of Iggy Pop and Brigitte Bardot" by Bomp! magazine, she seemed likely to achieve greater fame. Cherie, not-yet sixteen, joined The Runaways in 1975, choosing for her audition song, the Peggy Lee classic, "Fever". She left the group two years later, in 1977 to pursue an acting career, and appeared in a number of films, but heavy problems with drug addiction caused her career to be interrupted in the mid-1980s.

She has since resumed performing and moved also into new areas of creative work, such as record production and chainsaw carving. She has written an autobiography, Neon Angel: The Cherie Currie Story.
