Thanks to Mike Stax for posting this to the internet, in the light of Kim’s passing. Even if you think you have no interest in him, this interview is an engrossing and hilarious read. With Kim going a mile a minute, the interview format is largely moot. Every story is merely a touching off point for Kim’s vast experiences. Names aren’t so much dropped, as bombed, and these are BIG names. Additionally, interviewer Mike Stax is able to wrest out some info on Kim’s lesser known productions, for the true Fowleyphile. http://ugly-things.com/kim-fowley-sins-secrets-of-the-silver-sixties/
and how did I forget this gem in my previous post?
Another Xmas birthday! Merry Clayton loaned her vocal talents to the recordings of some of the biggest names in the business. Check a partial list: The Rolling Stones, Neil Young, Ray Charles, Carole King, Joe Cocker, Tom Jones…
Glad that she got props in the fantastic 20 Feet From Stardom documentary
And she was the original Acid Queen!
re-edit of her version of the Neil Young Classic
And I just discovered, that’s her on The Blackbyrds classic, Rock Creek Park
Her version of Lift Every Voice, as used in Robert Altman’s, Brewster McCloud
