Kim Vincent Fowley was a record producer, musician and manager, best known for his work with the Runaways. I confess that my first introduction to Fowley was not through his work, but through the biopic film, the Runaways. The film characterized Fowley as ruthlessly ambitious and creatively provocative, while being quite the bastard. It’s been said that some of that description isn’t far from the truth.
