Kenny Laguna, Joan Jett and the other Runaways

I loved The Runaways and had a king size crush on Cherry “bomb” Currie for the longest time though the one time I saw em live at CBGB’s they kinda suxd.

Coupla years later I loved Joan Jett and rock and roll and interviewed Joanie for the cover of Creem and her manager Kenny Laguna was with her. Joan was charming and sweet and Kenny was loud and very, very funny and very, very tough.When it comes to JJ he is a cross between a mother bear with her cubs and a tarantula; her own personal Luca Brazi. As the other Runaways are discovering.

Apparently Laguna offered heavy metal queen $1,000 for the rights to Lita’s life story Now Jackie Fox (nee Fuchs) is suing Jett because she claims to own partials rights to the Runaways name. Since she played guitar for the first half of their existence I don’t see how they can not pay her. How about this: there is no character based upon Fuchs in the movie.

Pretty fucked up, writing people out of their own lives -I guess that’s what you get from dealing with tarantula’s… but I bet Kim Fowley bit back.
