Cherie Currie will always be remembered as the lead singer of the all-girl band, The Runways from 1975-1977. After leaving the band she released a solo album plus the album, MESSIN’ WITH THE BOYS with her twin sister Marie.
Their sound was a straight forward rock approach and was more polished than her time with the Runaways although such backing musicians as Steve Lukather, Waddy Wachtel, Jeff Porcaro and others had a lot to do with it. The single, “Since You Been Gone” probably deserved more commercial success than it received, which was virtually none as it peaked at number 95 on the BILLBOARD MAGAZINE Pop Singles Chart during October of 1979.
Currie has been back in the studio lately and has spent the last three decades as a sculpter and actress.
