Cherie Ann Currie (born November 30, 1959) is an American musician, singer, songwriter, actress and artist. Currie was the lead vocalist of the Runaways, a rock band from Los Angeles, in the mid-to-late 1970s. After the Runaways, she became a solo artist. Then she teamed up with her identical twin sister, Marie Currie, and released an album with her. They released a duet "Since You Been Gone" which charted number 95 on US charts. Their band was called Cherie and Marie Currie. She is also well known for her role in the movie Foxes.
Currie struggled with drug addiction for much of her younger life, which was a major factor in the abrupt ending of her career. She later wrote a memoir, Neon Angel, recounting life in the band and her traumatic experiences with drug addiction, sex abuse, and her broken family. The Runaways, a 2010 biographical drama film executive-produced by Joan Jett, focuses on the group's early beginnings and explores the relationship between Currie and Jett. In the film, Currie is portrayed by Dakota Fanning.
Currie was married to actor Robert Hays on May 12, 1990, and they had one son together, Jake Hays. They are now divorced. Jake Hays learned to play guitar well enough to be included in recent recording sessions, and as a member of Cherie Currie's new touring band.
Currie is now a wood-carving artist using a chainsaw to create her works. She has been doing chainsaw art since 2002 and opened her own gallery in 2005 in Chatsworth, California. Her chainsaw art has been featured on recent television programs.
