DeeDee Keel is a rock and roll woman with a Heart of Gold!

DeeDee talks about fond memories at the Riot House and Sunset Plaza, going full circle with Deep Purple drummer Ian Paice and Blue Cheer's Leigh Stephens, her relationship with guitarist Sam Mitchell, and a not so friendly encounter involving Mott the Hoople frontman Ian Hunter.

    Ep: 174: Grace Jones

    1:02:00

    This week Chanty returns to hear the story behind Grace Jones' life and career. Growing up in Jamaica wasn't easy for Grace. Raised by her extremely strict and religious relatives, it wasn't until she was a teenager and moved to America to be with her parents that she began to see a world of possibility. With her incredibly striking looks and a strong ambition to make a career for herself, it was natural that Grace would enter the world of modelling. It didn't take long though for Grace's passion for music and art to take center stage. After being signed by Island Records and finding a perfect collaborative partner in Jean-Paul Goude, Grace took the world by storm, mixing music, fashion and art into eye catching and shocking performative pieces. She would go on to release 9 albums, tour the world, and make her way onto movie screens in just the first decade of her career. Grace truly is a walking piece of art.

    Ep 172: Patti Johnsen Part 2

    1:07:42

    This week I am joined once again by the magnetic Patti Johnsen in a discussion on what being a true groupie means. You may remember our previous interview with Patti Johnsen, alumni of the Rainbow Bar & Grill as well as the creator of the Groupie Round Table, or perhaps you remember her name from the fabulous chapter she has in Pamela Des Barres book Let's Spend the Night Together. We previously discussed her time touring with Van Halen, meeting George Harrison, her decade long job at the Rainbow, the formation of the Groupie Round Table and rock n roll "Holy Grails". This time around Patti and I discuss the term groupie, what it means to us and it's misconceptions. We also discuss rock n roll decadence, "Almost Famous" tour moments, her incredible friendship with Motorhead frontman Lemmy Kilmister, and what it's like to wake up next to Billy Idol! Patti is one of a kind, she is naturally beautiful inside and out and has the truest groupie soul. It's always such a pleasure to talk to a true groupie sister and I'm so happy she came on again to share more from her incredible past. Patti is also the speaker of one of my favourite interview quotes...."Just because you haven’t fucked a rockstar doesn’t mean you’re not a groupie. A guitar, a Les Paul comes off the assembly line, it hasn’t been played yet. Does it mean it’s not a guitar? Of course it is! And you put that in the hands of a rockstar, you just wait to hear that fucker sing! You are still a groupie because once you get in the hands of a rockstar baby, wait to hear you sing.” If you haven't listened previously, you can listen to our first discussion back in Episode 108.

    Ep 170: Cherry Vanilla

    1:03:25

    This week we discuss the exciting life and career of Cherry Vanilla. Cherry Vanilla has certainly lived life to the fullest. At just 19 she was one of the first, and certainly youngest women managing major clients at an ad agency (Think Mad Men!) while also breaking barriers as the first female DJ in the NYC nightclub scene. After watching the documentary Groupies Cherry had "At last had a name and a vision for the role I'd been dying to play for so long, along with an awareness of a sisterhood of like-minded role models.” Cherry wasn't just a part of the music scene though, she also participated in the "Theatre of the Ridiculous" working with people like Jayne County and many regulars from the Warhol factory scene. In 1971 she starred in Andy Warhol's London production of Pork. It was while there that she met David Bowie, who had yet to break onto the American charts. When Bowie and his manager Tony Defries were looking to establish a New York office for his company Mainman they knew exactly who to call. All Cherry's previous work experience made her the perfect woman for the job. She would become Bowie's main PR spokesperson and later move up to VP of their audio/visual division, helping to solidify his place as a rock n roll icon.If all that weren't enough, by the end of the 70's Cherry would hit the stage herself, becoming immersed in the new punk scene and releasing 2 albums herself. Cherry's incredible passion for life, love and music is inspiring and after checking out the episode make sure you also purchase her fantastic memoir, Lick Me, where ever you buy your books!
