Kim Fowley, Producer And Rock Svengali, Dies
NPR JANUARY 16, 201512:43 PM ET

Kim Fowley, one of rock and roll's great svengalis and the man who helped form the all-girl band The Runaways, has died. He had been undergoing cancer treatments, but no cause of death has been announced. He was 75.

Checkered barely begins to describe Kim Fowley's long, crazy career in music. He was a songwriter, manager, producer, promoter and scenester. Back in the early 1960s, he helped put together a novelty song for the R&B group The Rivingtons. And he worked on the No. 1 hit "Alley Oop" by The Hollywood Argyles. Fowley wrote or produced or popped up in songs for Cat Stevens, Frank Zappa, The Byrds and his own weird late '60s album Outrageous."

Personal Statement: To Taua Na Moai!
I am saddened to see his passing. People can say what they will of his self proclaimed evil and villainy in the music business, but I know his work influenced some of my favorite bands and their music. Here is a link to his body of work. http://www.kimfowley.net/victories/kimataglance.htm
