Cherie Currie‘s extraordinary life reads like fiction. From a teenage rock star to becoming an accomplished Chainsaw Carving artist, Cherie has always taken the road less traveled.
Cherie Currie was born and raised in the San Fernando Valley, where she spent her early teenage years living the Southern California lifestyle with skateboarding and surfing being her pastimes of choice. Cherie describes her life at this time as “about as Ozzie & Harriet as it comes.”
Inspired by the music and image of David Bowie , Cherie found an escape and a raison d’être in rock & roll. “Cherry Bomb” became one of THE RUNAWAYS signature songs, and still stands today as a universal anthem for teenage rebellion. Cherie was just 15 when she became The Runaways lead singer.
