The events will raise money and donations for the homeless in memory of Thomas, a homeless, mentally ill man whose death at the hands of Fullerton police officers threw the town into turmoil and led to criminal charges against two of the officers and a recall of three City Council members. On Friday night from 6 to 11 p.m., the PAS Gallery at 223 W. Santa Fe Ave. will host an opening reception for an art show in which more than 40 artists contributed pieces inspired by Thomas.

  • TEENAGE
  • 1975
    Age 15
    Currie joined the Runaways in 1975, at age 15.
    More Details Hide Details The teen rock anthem "Cherry Bomb" was written for her at the audition. Assessments of her impact at that time differ; one reviewer has written that "the received wisdom that Runaways carved out new territory for female musicians is hard to justify – it's doubtful that the predominantly male audience who flocked to see the 16-year-old Currie in her undies picked up any feminist subtext." After three albums with the Runaways (The Runaways, Queens of Noise and Live in Japan), Currie went on to be a solo artist. She signed a contract with Mercury saying she would record four records, but she left the Runaways after the third album, thus she was obligated to record another album. She recorded it solo and the result was Beauty's Only Skin Deep for Polygram Records. Marie Currie did a duet with Cherie on her solo record "Love at First Sight". Cherie and Marie went on a US tour in 1977, and when Marie would join Cherie on stage to sing the encores the audience would go wild. Then they went on a Japan tour in 1978. While in Japan, the twins performed on many TV shows. So Cherie ran with the idea of two blonds are better than one, and changed the band name from Cherie Currie to Cherie and Marie Currie. With Marie Currie, she recorded Messin' with the Boys for Capitol Records and Young and Wild for Raven.
