Peace, punk and Joan.

Cherie Currie of The Runaways (right), with her twin sister Marie and Vicki Razorblade, 1977, by Brad Elterman (who was in high school with Vicki). “I think of this photo in my dreams and it reminds me of my youth. We were all from the San Fernando Valley. Some of us escaped and others never left.” 

(Check Vicki’s Bowie belt buckle!)
