About Cherie Ann Currie

Born on November 30, 1959, in Los Angeles, California, Cherie Currie secured her place in the annals of rock music as a member of the seminal girl band, the Runaways.

However, it was her twin sister, Marie Currie who was actually offered a spot in the band. Approached in a club by the group of Svengali Kim Fowley and guitarist Joan Jett, Marie passed on the opportunity, but Cherie took the spot, auditioned for the fledgling act and getting the nod as lead singer. Quickly earned a record deal, the Runaways suffered from being viewed as a novelty and Currie's suggestive attire only served to give credence to naysayers.

Currie appeared on the group's first three album releases: The Runaways, Waitin' for the Night, and Live in Japan where the band achieved its greatest level of success, notched several gold records and a rabid group of followers. The albums managed little commercial success in the States, barely eking out a place on the charts. After a couple of years, Runaways' reputation as pioneers increased considerably and their body of work reassessed in light of its influence on a generation of female musicians.

Currie left the band in 1977 amidst rumors of tensions between her and Fowley, as well as Runaways guitarist Lita Ford. Whatever rift that may or may not have existed between Currie and Fowley, he still produced her 1978 solo issue, Beauty's Only Skin Deep, although it failed to break Currie to a wider audience. She returned two years later, this time with sister Marie Currie, to release Messin' with the Boys.

Despite having some heavyweight players (including several members of Toto) backing the siblings, the record again failed to ignite commercially. Currie shifted some of her focus to the cinema instead, appearing in the well-received Foxes alongside Academy Award-winning actress Jodie Foster.
