Lick Me How I Became Cherry Vanilla

Author(s): Vanilla Cherry

Music | No Category | November 2020

Steeped in sex, drugs, and rock 'n' roll, "Lick Me "takes the reader on a juicy journey through the life and times of the infamous Cherry Vanilla. A wunderkind on Madison Avenue in the swinging sixties, Cherry soon found fame as a DJ in clubs in Manhattan and on the French Riviera. She starred in Andy Warhol's play "Pork "in London while gaining notoriety as a groupie, sleeping with musicians ranging from Leon Russell to Kris Kristofferson. Working as David Bowie's PR lady (and occasional lover), she played a major part in introducing him to the U.S. market. She was on the front lines when punk broke, one of the few successful women in the genre; her backing band was the Police, and she released two insouciant albums on RCA. Cherry's memoir takes us on a journey from the birth of rock to the explosion of punk, exploring every aspect of the music industry during its most electrifying era, with memorable detours through the sexual revolution, the women's liberation movement, and the theater of the ridiculous. But Cherry's life wasn't all excitement and high times. From unwanted pregnancies to poverty and public ridicule, "Lick Me "also takes us through Cherry's own problems, including sex addiction and OCD, and reveals how she dealt with them. "Lick Me "reveals the thrilling life of a woman who pulled herself up from humble beginnings and fearlessly lived her dreams.
