Jake Fogelnest interviews rock-and-roll Renaissance man Kim Fowley, who is recovering from three cancer operations to his bladder, prostate, and lymph nodes, and any time a microphone gets thrust into Fowley's face, attention must be paid. Even in his debilitated state, Fowley's memory is sharp and his banter funny, caustic, lascivious, and self-deprecating... and self-aggrandizing. "I'm like a dead person with a hard-on in reverse," he says. Plus, there are musical interludes. Listen, learn, and laugh.
The 74-year-old Fowley also has completed a three-part autobiography. The first volume, Lord of Garbage, was recently published by Kick Books.
