Joan Jett and Cherie Currie of The Runaways know a little bit about longevity. The two have been rocking out for decades and felt they could offer advice to the world's biggest star, Lady GagG.
"I'll tell you, The Runaways, when we started, we didn't have this sort of craziness around us. Really the only time when there was insanity, as far as the press goes, was Japan … it wasn't a 24-hour media world at that point. I think it's very difficult if you had to be dealing with this all the time. It's tough to incubate and do the work you need to do with people in your face."
Cherie, who became a drug counselor after leaving the group, has other advice.
"You know you have got to try to keep your wits about you," she said. "There is so much expected from you. But try to limit yourself to just two … as long as it is in drinking form, just two [drinks].
Whether she takes the words of wisdom or not, we're pretty sure Gagaloo will be around for quite some time!
With the production and pending release of The Runaways biopic, starring K-Stew and Dakota Fanning, original Runaways members Joan Jett and Cherie Currie are planning on heading to the studio!
In fact, the song the two recorded for the film's soundtrack was the first time Cherie and Joan had played music together since 1977!
Currie says when they were in the studio, it "was as if time had stood still, as if these last 35 years never happened."
"We were on the mark. It was incredible. We had a fantastic time… It was just a blast," Cherie raved.
Enough so that the two original Runaways will be at it again this summer!
Says Currie, who is now a professional chainsaw sculptor:
I know I'm going to be doing shows over the summer. I've written a few songs. We'll see what happens. Am I banking on it? No. I've got my chainsaw and my wood and I'm very happy. But I know I'm going to be doing some things here and there, and we'll see what comes of it… We're definitely going to work together in music.
